How to Make Apple Pie Potpourri

Fresh and sweet, this is a potpourri to cheer the atmosphere of any room in the house. It's also a lovely way to have a more permanent scent of apple pie wafting through your home.


1 cup dried apple slices
2 tbsp ground cinnamon
1/4 cup whole allspice berries
10 (2") cinnamon sticks
2 tbsp whole cloves
1/4 cup canella, sumac or nandina berries
10 small pinecones
7 drops cinnamon oil
2 tsp orris root

Other Things You'll Need

Tin or jar
Potpourri display container


Step 1 Mix the ingredients together in a large bowl.

Step 2 Put the mixture into a jar or tin and put the lid on.

Step 3 Put aside to infuse. Leave for about 3 to 4 weeks to infuse, remembering to shake the potpourri every few days.

Step 4 Test. If the scent is strong enough to your liking, then it is ready to use. Transfer to decorative potpourri containers
