I don’t usually do potpourri, but last year my daughter decided we needed to change that. The day after Thanksgiving, we made up a mixture of stove top potpourri. I loved how it made my house smell. I loved it so much, I decided to share it with my family and friends. But, as with most neighbor gifts we give, creating a cute presentation is one of the most fun parts. So, I set out to find some supplies that would make this gift extra cute.
I found a spice mix on Amazon that was perfect. It smelled great, plus it had star anise in it, which I thought were so cute. I put that at the bottom of a mason jar, then I layered some cranberries, pine leaves, and a few dried orange slices. The, just empty the contents in a pot, add water, and simmer to start enjoying the wonderful scent of Christmas.
