Homemade Cinnamon Potpourri
Homemade Cinnamon Potpourri is one of my all time favorite things to make to give each Christmas season, and it's such a simple (sweet!) gift to give. I make up some each year and give to friends, neighbors, or as teacher gifts (along with a Starbucks gift card for those teachers who do so much for my kids!)
It's just a pretty way to tell folks you're thankful for them, and I love how yummy it makes your home smell too.
The best part? It's like Homemade Christmas Potpourri is like Christmas baking minus the calories . . . um, for this girl-who-loves-the-all-the-chocolate, that's a huge gift this time of year!
I'd give anything to “take a picture” of just how yummy this one smells, but since smell-a-vision hasn't been created yet, just imagine that it smells like the Christmas Season walked right on into your home today.
Here's what you'll need to make up each bag of Cinnamon Potpourri:
- 1 or 2 clementines
- 1-2 tbsp. cloves
- 2 cinnamon sticks per bag
- cranberries (optional)
- a pinecone (optional)
- fresh greenery (optional)
- Combine all ingredients on stove top in small pan
- Cover with 2 cups
- Simmer on small burner on stove top over low heat
- Add water as needed to freshen
