How to Make Potpourri

Here’s a simple recipe for a festive and aromatic potpourri:


  • Dried orange slices
  • Cinnamon sticks
  • Whole cloves
  • Dried cranberries
  • Star anise
  • Bay leaves
  • Vanilla extract (optional)
  • Nutmeg (optional)


  1. Gather Your Supplies:
    • Mason jars (any size will work)
    • Small bowl
    • Wooden spoon or mixing utensil
    • Ribbon or twine (for decoration)
    • Parchment paper (optional)
  2. Prepare the Ingredients:
    • Slice an orange into thin rounds and place them on a parchment-lined baking sheet.
    • Bake the orange slices in a low oven (around 200°F or 93°C) for 2-3 hours or until they are completely dried.
  3. Mix the Potpourri:
    • In a bowl, combine the dried orange slices, cinnamon sticks, whole cloves, dried cranberries, star anise, and bay leaves.
    • Optionally, add a few drops of vanilla extract for a sweet scent or grate some nutmeg for a warm, spicy aroma.
  4. Layer in the Mason Jar:
    • Begin layering the mixed potpourri ingredients into the Mason jar, creating a visually appealing arrangement.
    • Insert cinnamon sticks vertically along the sides of the jar for a decorative touch.
  5. Seal and Decorate:
    • Close the Mason jar tightly to seal in the fragrance.
    • Tie a ribbon or twine around the top of the jar for a festive and finished look.
  6. Enjoy:
    • Place your DIY Mason jar potpourri in any room of your home where you’d like to enjoy a pleasant scent.
    • Shake the jar occasionally to release the fragrance.
  7. Refresh as Needed:
    • Over time, the potency of the potpourri may fade. You can refresh it by adding a drop or two of essential oil or simply by giving it a good shake to awaken the fragrance.
