This year Ava and I put together little bags of stovetop potpourri for her teachers. These bags are super easy to make and smell amazing! They bring the smell of Christmas to every home!
I bought all of the ingredients needed for the potpourri bags in bulk so I could make a bunch of them to hand out to our family and friends. Thank goodness I had a few left over! I have been using at least one a week to get our house filled with Christmas aromas. I usually leave the potpourri in the pot after I am done letting it simmer for the day and reuse it the next day. For me, each bag has lasted for two days.
I found this cute ribbon in the dollar section at Target and used this free printable to go along with the bags.
Here are some more free printables you might like.
- 1 orange
- About 1 cup of fresh cranberries
- About 1 tablespoons or more of nutmeg
- 3 cinnamon sticks
Note: I didn’t really measure so that’s why I said “about”. We just threw everything in the bag. This is a great gift for the kids to help with.
- Slice orange and add everything to a small pot. Add two cups of water and simmer on low. Add water as needed.
Optional: I added some clippings from our Christmas tree to my simmering pot.
