Pinterest 365 – Day 36 – Christmas Potpourri

After yesterday’s Pinterest craft, I needed an easy one today.  So I cut up an orange, combined it with a handful of whole cloves and some cinnamon sticks, and boiled it over low heat in a saucepan of water.  Christmas potpourri!

Holiday PotpourriThe actual recipe from the MakeItDo blog also has 1/2 cup of fresh cranberries, but my store didn’t carry them.  I will make it again with cranberries when I locate a bag, but for today our potpourri is sans cranberries.
