Fall Potpourri

I planted sunflowers in our garden for the first time this summer and they have made a wonderful addition to our garden.     I have dried some of the larger flowers to use in a fall wreath.

I used the smaller dried sunflowers in my fall potpourri.     All of the flowers in my potpourri are ones that I have dried from my flower garden.
I have added potpourri to any empty container I saw around the house....lol.....
I thought about buying some oil to add fragrance to my mixture,  but decided just to add some dried oranges and cinnamon sticks

I have a plate of it on our lunch table.....smells wonderful!

  8. Wow that is some beautiful potpourri. I'm still waiting a bit to pick my sunflowers. I plan on making a "bird feeder" wreath with them. Never thought about potpourri I guess because they are so big. Thanks for the inspiration.
