Potpourri-in-a-Jar

This is an easy DIY project that makes a great gift. You can be as creative as you’d like with your selection of herbs and spices. It can be just a few ingredients, or a larger assortment of flowers, herbs, and spices. Common fragrant flowers are roses, geraniums, orchids, and hibiscus. Here is our take on a classic.

INGREDIENTS:

INSTRUCTIONS:

  1. Combine all ingredients except vanilla, essential oil, and water in large baking pan.
  2. Dry in oven for at least two hours, until flowers and herbs are brittle, and peel is dry.
  3. Add vanilla and essential oil to water in spray bottle and lightly spritz dried ingredients.
  4. Transfer mixture to Apothecary Jar or other glass vase of your choice.
  5. Add Decorative Pearls, if desired.
  6. Cover jar lid or open vase with fabric and secure in place with Ribbon.
  7. TIP: Cutting the fabric with pinking shears adds a nice touch.

Potpourri can be used dry, in a variety of different types of decorative bowls or glass vases. We especially recommend Bowl Vases, Cube Vases, and Pan Vases for use with potpourri. And our Apothecary Jars are perfect for giving potpourri as a gift.

When your potpourri begins to lose its fragrance, you can add a handful to a few cups of water and simmer on the stove in a saucepan. You’ll get a little bit more enjoyment from the aroma, and your house will smell amazing!
