I really love the way that coffee smells, especially when you notice it in places that you aren't expecting to find it.
One day, a pound of really nice smelling Stumptown ground coffee spilled in the back of my car. As I went to clean it up with my shopvac I thought to myself, "It's too bad I have to clean this mess up, I'm really going to miss the smell of coffee every time I get into my car".
Well, as I've since discovered, there's no need to spill coffee grounds in your car to have that great coffee scent when you step into it, simply make a semi-permanent coffee scented air freshener and enjoy that great coffee bean scent whenever and wherever you like.

Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.
Step 1: Supplies
- paracord or some string if you want to hang it up
- coffee grinds (choose the ones that smell best to you)
- plastic cup or funnel
Step 2: Make a Stocking Filler
I cut a hole in the bottom of a plastic cup so that I could use it as a funnel to fill the stocking with coffee. If you've got a funnel on hand just use that and skip this step.
Step 3: Pour Coffee Grounds Into Stocking
Stretch the stocking around the cup with the hole cut in the bottom of it and pour coffee grounds in.
Use your hand to push the grounds down to the bottom of the stocking and form them into a ball.
Step 4: Tie Off and Cut
Tie the stocking off with a knot and secure it with some paracord.
Use the paracord to hang it from different places...like your rear view mirror, the christmas tree, or your bathroom.
Step 5: Put Extra Stockings on Your Head (optional)
Take the extra stockings and stretch them onto your head. It looks way crazier than I had ever thought it would. Do bank robbers really do this? I could barely see out of the thing!
