Potpourri Bowl Craft

Make this Potpourri Bowl for Mom or Grandma and fill it with potpourri sprinkled with their favorite scent. They will want to keep this treasure in their bedroom or favorite sitting place to remind  them of you when you are not with them.


Potpourri is simply a mixture of dried flowers, natural herbs, essential oils, and spices. All of these are mixed and placed in perforated containers or open bowls so that the scent is allowed to escape and fill the room that they’re placed in.
