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.


Listed below are a few suggestions to create your own unique potpourri, which is a very fun activity to do with children:


Cinnamon sticks

Citrus Peels







Scented Geraniums

Scented Salvia
