DIY Christmas Scent Potpourri

I made these cute simmering scent jars for the girls teachers last year for Christmas and they were a huge hit.  The cost (depending on what supplies you already have at home) is pretty inexpensive.  If your looking for a creative gift at a frugal price, this might be it!

Directions:  Place ingredients in pint jar and fill with water.  Top with small piece of fabric or glue scrapbook paper secured by tying ribbon or twine around lid.  Attach tag (I hot glued tag to jar)  .

To be written on tag and attached to jar:
Pour contents into saucepan on stovetop and simmer
on low heat, add water as needed.
Refrigerate to keep fresh.
