Craft: Christmas Potpourri Wreaths

This is an easy-to-do and inexpensive way to decorate your home and also makes a great little gift!

You need:

* Cardboard cut into whatever size wreath you'd like to make (use cups, bowls, etc. to trace your desired size)

* A bag of potpourri (your desired scent)

* Glue Gun (you will need approx. 2-3 glue sticks to make a small wreath)

Get to it:

You can either just begin gluing down pieces of the potpourri until you've created a wreath that you're happy with, or you can first paint the cardboard wreath cut-out whatever color you wish and then glue down your potpourri.

It's that easy!

Tip: This doesn't just have to be for Christmas. There are so many different scents available in potpourri so get creative! You can do any shape you'd like. (You can do hearts for Valentines Day, etc.)
