Two Easy and Traditional Holiday Potpourri Recipes

The Holidays are officially here, and there’s nothing like smell to remind you of home. If you don’t have the want, time or skill set to make your own goodies that perfume your house the way Grandma did, try these easy recipes and fake it ‘til you make it.

You may remember making these as a kid, but if your crafting skills have improved since then, they make not only a beautiful table centerpiece, but fragrant ornaments as well.

What you’ll need:

pomanders

Some people like to map out the design with toothpicks, but it’s much easier to follow if you sketch it with a pencil first. Press cloves into the orange in whatever design you choose. Finish with ribbons, glitter or whatever other crafty things you have lying around.

Stove Top Potpourri:

What you’ll need:

cinnamon

Specifics: 2 cinnamon sticks, handful of spices, 1 cup of cranberry, half of large citrus or one whole small citrus fruit

Feel free to substitute the oranges and cloves from the recipe above for the grapefruit and mulling spices.

Combine all ingredients in a small saucepan, cover with water, place over low heat and let the smell of the Holidays carry you away!
