DIY Christmas Potpourri with Printable Gift Labels
For gift giving, place all of the ingredients above in a cellophane bag.
Print a sheet of gift labels and cut out.
Tie label to bag. (You may want to use a hole punch to make this easier!)
Present as a gift to the lucky recipient!
To use the potpourri, the recipient just needs to slice the orange and then add the orange slices and the rest of the ingredients from the bag into a pot with 3 cups of water.
As it simmers on the stove it will release the amazing aroma into the air.
Optionally, the potpourri can be placed in a slow cooker or crockpot.
With either method, more water can be added to the simmering potpourri as it evaporates which means the scent can keep going for a long time!
