Have you ever wished you could preserve a special bouquet? Perhaps you received flowers for a special occasion and hated to just throw them away! You can hang them up to dry and use them as decor around your home or you can use them to make your very own fragrant potpourri.
Here’s a quick and easy way to save your flowers with DIY Potpourri.
You can make potpourri with any flower petals after they have dried, and save those memories!
Personalize potpourri with your favorite essential oils such as eucalyptus or lavender.
