On this page I'll show how to make potpourri with a simple Christmas potpourri recipe. It has delicious warm and spicy scent.
All you need for this potpourri recipe is:
All quantities of ingredients are approximate. Don't worry about using exact amounts - I promise the potpourri will smell delicious regardless :-)
You can either buy dried orange slices from a craft store, or make your own. I made may own, and it was quite straightforward. The nice thing about making them yourself is that your kitchen will smell amazing while the orange slices are drying.
Drying orange slices:
If you're making potpourri for yourself, just put all the ingredients in a bowl and let the warm spicy scent waft around the room. Don't be surprised if it makes you hungry... it smells a bit like Christmas pudding!
If you're giving the potpourri as a gift (e.g. as part of a gift basket or Christmas hamper), then it looks nice wrapped in a cellophane bag tied with some raffia or ribbon. On this one I also attached a little cinnamon dough star, which smells lovely itself too :-)
