It's fall! That means pumpkins, apples, spices and turning leaves. You can celebrate the season by making this DIY Autumn Spice Potpourri Jars Craft! It makes a great hostess gift for a fall festival party or Thanksgiving dinner. It also works as a teacher gift or just to decorate your own home! To amp up the scent of the jar you'll want to add essentials oils. If you're going for just the cuteness factor, then just stick with the flowers and spices!
DIY Autumn Spice Potpourri Jars Craft
Dried Fall Flowers
Cinnamon Oil (optional)
Swatch of Fabric
Hot Glue (optional)
- Punch several holes in the lid of a small, clean glass jar (baby food jar, honey or jelly jar). You can use a kitchen shears or else nail and hammer.
- Fill the jar with a combination of dried fall flowers, such as marigolds, asters, mums, etc.
