DIY Potpourri Jars
Last year I made and shared to the blog a DIY Simmering Potpourri. I realized I could use the same concept, but make it prettier and you can put them in any room that you like since these are DIY Potpourri Jars. I have to warn you not to make these if you’re hungry. They really smell like a delicious pie, so another trip to the store may be in order for pie ingredients.
This pretty project cost under $10 dollars to create. I picked up these smaller mason jars and the twine from Dollar Tree. It’s one a few blocks from my house and I’m there weekly picking up nick knacks for my home.
Here’s What You Need:
Tea Light Candles
Arrange your fruits and herbs in the mason jar remembering not to pack them tightly. It only takes a little to fill up each jar. You want to make sure you have room for the water and the tea light on top.
Carefully pour the water in each jar. I used hot water but I don’t think it makes a difference. Then when you’re ready to smell the delicious aroma, place a tea light candle on top and light. These DIY Potpourri Jars last about two days before you have to dump them and start over. I like to close them with a lid, and open them when ready to light. These also make a pretty DIY gift for a friend or family member.
You can also use different variations of citrus fruits and herbs in your jars. I really like this cranberry and lemon combo.
