Making Potpourri

As a little gift for a few people, we decided to make our own potpourri.  We started by dehydrating oranges mostly for looks but also to add a little citrus scent.

The kid’s favorite part – sneaking a few orange slices as they arranged them on the trays!

Then after waiting overnight for the oranges to dry out, we put together little bags of orange slices, pine cones, and cinnamon sticks.

It really smelled quite yummy!

We hope that the people we made it for really like it!
