When I reviewed the Homestead Blessings Art of Crafting video, I promised some pictures when we actually tried some of the crafts. Well Christmas snuck up on us this year, but we DID make potpourri and gave it to a few people as Christmas gifts.
We also ate LOTS of oranges (no hardship, all 3 girls LOVE clementines, the 3 of them will easily eat a 3lb bag in a day!) and dried the orange peel. Then we admit defeat in having completely natural, from our property, potpourri this late in the year, and went to the craft store for some little pine cones and red beads and little silver ball things.
We dumped everything together in a bowl and mixed it together and added cinnamon and sweet orange essential oils.
Right before Christmas we put the potpourri into little bags, tied them with ribbons and gave them to the grandparents, etc. for Christmas.
And I had great intentions of getting a picture of the 2 big girls with all the pretty bags of potpourri, and completely forgot, so you'll just have to take my word for it . . .
But, bottom line. We had fun, and it was super easy!! You should try it!
