MIX YOUR OWN FALL POT­POURRI

Country Sampler Autumn Decorating SIP 2018 - - Inside - DE­SIGNED AND PHO­TOGRAPHED BY LINDSEY JOHN­SON OF HELLOGLOW.CO.

Store-bought pot­pourri of­ten has an ar­ti­fi­cial scent that can be over­pow­er­ing, to put it mildly. Lindsey John­son at Hello Glow made her own cus­tom pot­pourri with a va­ri­ety of dried fruits, nuts and spices. For a sim­i­lar mix, com­bine dried ap­ple slices, dried orange slices, whole in-shell nuts, cin­na­mon sticks, whole cloves, Ju­niper berries, dried rose hips, Lau­rel (bay) leaves, pinecones, and es­sen­tial oils such as cedar wood, clove, cin­na­mon, orange and pine. Don’t worry about mea­sur­ing your in­gre­di­ents; Lindsey just adds big­ger hand­fuls of the larger items and smaller hand­fuls of the smaller items. Place ev­ery­thing into a jar, sprin­kle with the es­sen­tial oils and gen­tly toss. Then, di­vide into small bowls or com­potes and place around your home.

CUS­TOMIZE IT Gather in­gre­di­ents from your own yard or garden to cre­ate a one-of-a-kind mix.
