Stovetop Potpourri has the delicious scents of cranberry, cinnamon and citrus. Want to make your home and your neighbor’s smell like CHRISTMAS?
Hey everyone! I’m Kristin from Yellow Bliss Road and I am so excited to be here! A huge thank you to the Crafting Chicks for having me over today! At Yellow Bliss Road, I love to share simple & delicious recipes and fun free printables, especially around the holidays.
For my gift idea, I decided to put together two of the things I love most about Christmas – 1) Gift giving, and 2) the delicious scents of cranberry, cinnamon and citrus. Want to make your home and your neighbor’s smell like CHRISTMAS? Read on and I’ll show you how!
I love to fill my home with amazing scents during the holidays, and there’s no better combination than citrus and cranberry mixed with cinnamon and spices. This is a simple recipe that you can simmer on your stovetop or in a crockpot to help fill your home with these delicious scents.
All of these ingredients are combined in a small pot on the stove.
Since I thought this would be a great gift idea, I created a fun printable tag to go with it. Just right click on the image above to save it to your computer, then print as many as you need.
Place the ingredients in a jar or gift bag. I’ll be honest, it wasn’t easy getting that orange in there so I’d suggest choosing a small orange, or slicing it and placing it in a ziploc bag before adding it to your jar. You also want to place the spices in a small bag so they dont just fall to the bottom. I simply cut the corner of a ziploc bag, poured the spices in, then tied it with a small piece of twine.
For the top, I just cut a circle out of a brown paper lunch bag and placed it under the ring of the mason jar. I then added a “To” and “From” just in my own handwriting. I attached the tag with some twine.
I love how fresh and rustic this gift is, and I love that it’s not another food gift!
Thanks again for letting me visit!
