Homemade Potpourri Steps

photo (61)One of the biggest “flower” holidays is looming in the coming days. Thousands of flowers will be given, and eventually, will wilt and dry up. I never realized how easy it was to make homemade potpourri. I got the idea when my daughter got some pretty flowers for her 5th birthday last month. They started to wilt after about a week and I wondered what to do with them – I hated to toss them. Here’s what I did in 3 easy steps!

Homemade Potpourri

1. Snip the tops of the flowers off, keeping the bud in tact. I cut them right under the bud and put them all in a sealed container. Some of the flowers looked even prettier when they were dried.

2. Add some essential oils – here’s where you can doctor it up. I love calming scents like lavender and eucalyptus. You can get these oils at any natural market locally or shop online like I do. Once you add a few drops of oil, seal the container. Keep it in a dry place, sealed, for 3-4 days to allow the oil to seep into the dried petals

3.  Open the container, and put them in a pretty bowl. That’s it!homemade potpourri

Pretty simple. I wish I’d done it earlier. The nice thing is that you can doctor this for the holidays as well. Use things like star anise, cinnamon sticks and dried oranges with a warmer scent for the fall/winter, dry some pieces of pine branches for the wintertime, and use dried Easter lilies in the spring.

I started following The Coupon Wizards after doing some research on the subject, with a little prodding from a friend, and coming across them on Facebook. I was hooked immediately & started to learn quickly. Mostly out of necessity, but also because I loved everything about it.

This blog was a life saver; literally! In no time at all, I was a blogger myself on the site. My husband has since found a job, but this is now mine and I love, love, love it and hope you will to.
