How can I make potpourri?

Homemade Potpourri

If you want fragrant, homemade potpourri, do not dispose of rose petals, or flowers that you "dead head."

Take the petals and lay them out on old newspaper or in a cardboard box for drying. You should make sure the drying petals do not touch each other during the drying phase.

Once the petals have dried, you should place them in an air tight container. Add a scent such as a cinnamon stick or concentrated oil to the container and seal for three to five days.

Remove the petals and place in a nice dish or basket.
