Christmas Potpourri!

Christmas potpourri is an easy way to bring the lovely holiday scents into your home.   When the weather starts to get cooler, I just love to have a simmering pot of this DIY potpourri on the stove or in the slow cooker. It's one of the quickest ways to get into the holiday spirit! And a Christmas potpourri gift is an inexpensive, welcome gesture that shows the recipient your thoughtfulness.
