Valentine’s Day Potpourri Heart DIY Craft

Valentine's Day Potpourri Heart DIY Craft

Who loves the scent of potpourri? I love the fact that there are so many many different scents that there is a scent for everyone. I personally like a mixture with a spicy blend, but a nice floral is perfect to make a Valentine’s Day Potpourri Heart.

Potpourri adds such a sweet smelling, decorative touch to a home. It’s even better when you can use potpourri to make a decorative heart to express your love for someone on Valentine’s Day or any other time of the year. But, if you want to keep it to decorate your own home – that’s perfectly ok too! Here’s how to make a quick and easy potpourri heart:

Supplies Needed:

A mixing bowl dedicated to crafts
Cooking spray
An old spoon for stirring
Potpourri of your choice
White craft glue
Newspaper
Metal cookie cutter in the shape of a heart

Instructions:

Step 1 – Assembly your supplies

You probably already have the mixing bowl, old spoon, newspaper and cooking spray. You should be able to buy the potpourri, white craft glue, and metal cookie cutter online or at your local craft store.

Step 2 – Prepare your potpourri

Fill a measuring cup full of potpourri and pour it into your mixing bowl. Slowly start adding craft glue to the potpourri while stirring to thoroughly mix the two components. It may take up to 1/3 of a cup of glue to thoroughly coat the potpourri. You’ll want the potpourri and glue to be well mixed with no clumps of glue visible. Although the glue will appear white at first, it’ll dry clear.

Step 3 – Prepare your cookie cutter

Spray the inside of your heart shaped cookie cutter with cooking spray. Allow the cooking spray to dry before proceeding.

Step 4 – Fill the cookie cutter

Lay your cookie cutter on a sheet of newspaper. Use your hands to carefully fill the inside of the cookie cutter with your potpourri/glue mixture. Be sure the cookie cutter is completely packed with potpourri. Allow the potpourri/glue mixture to dry in the cookie cutter for ten to fifteen minutes. Be careful not to leave the potpourri in the cookie cutter longer as it could be difficult to remove.

Step 5 – Carefully remove the cookie cutter
