How To Make Homemade Potpourri
Congrats! Valentine’s Day, Graduation and Mother's Day has come and gone… bad news your flowers are dying. Well no worries take your dried dying petals and make something that will last, potpourri! Once I learned how to do this I have been almost excited when my flowers “cross over.”
Watch the video for quick instructions. Enjoy!
Take your dried flowers and begin to strip them and remove the petals from the stems.
In a mason jar add all of your petals, dried leaves and branches until it is 3/4 full.
Add 5-10 drops of essential oil or 1 Tsp of fragrance oil to the jar.
Now add 1/4 Tsp of cinnamon to the jar, replace the lid and shake well.
I added some silk leaves, real baby’s breath, glass stones and dyed epson salt for a cozy and inexpensive flower arrangement.
