DIY Christmas Scent Potpourri

Standard

Two Frugal Gals

I made these cute simmering scent jars for the girls teachers last year for Christmas and they were a huge hit.  The cost (depending on what supplies you already have at home) is pretty inexpensive.  If your looking for a creative gift at a frugal price, this might be it!

I live in a small cottage in the Clwydian hills of North Wales. I left a career in Radiology management to pursue a country life of crafts, vintiquing, and wine tasting. I adore to travel but love to come home. I have a great husband and three fantastic children with three gorgeous grand children. Life is good but I believe it is also what you make it. My current mantra is "adventure before dementia"
