Potpourri Warmer Tutorial


This is a very simple, inexpensive gift.

When you turn on the lights, the warmth releases the potpourri scent.

**Never leave the Potpourri Warmer unattended. Treat it like you would a candle**

What you will need for this project: a jar or vase, potpourri, 20 count Christmas lights, ribbon, flower, rubber band and a doily.

Start by inserting some of the lights into the bottom of the jar. Add some potpourri on top of the lights. Alternate the lights and potpourri.


Layer the lights and potpourri until the jar is full.

Once the jar is as full as you want, place a doily on top of the jar and hold it in place with a rubber band.

Tie a ribbon around the jar on top of the rubber band. Decorate with a flower.

That's it!!!


I am a crocheter so I made the doily.

However, you can purchase a doily and a jar at a thrift store or yard sale.


You can change the Potpourri Warmer by using different embellishments. In this case, the warmer has a country look because I used a paper flower and vintage cotton ribbon.

My personal style is Victorian. When I make a warmer for myself, I embellish with satin ribbon and flowers. I also add a tassel.
