Other than your home and work, there's no place you spend more time than in your car. Every morning, afternoon and maybe even on weekends, your car serves as your own personal space while driving where you need to go. For a spot that many are in for hours a day, people seem to shy away from DIYing some improvements.

  • String
  • Hot Glue or a needle + thread 
  • Your favourite essential oil
