Making Fragrant Potpourris

During this year’s growing season, I have been actively drying and saving various flowers and foliage to create garden crafts for the holidays. One craft in particular that I truly love is making garden potpourri.

I craft several different types from dried flowers, fruit and various herbs. Each mix has it’s own fragrant and wonderful bouquet. But my all time favorite is a mixture of rudbeckia and sunflowers. The vibrant colors and scents give me an instant boost during the winter months.
