This simple tutorial, shared by Barbara, will teach you how to make a wonderful smelling decoration you can use all year long.

  • Age Guideline: 8 Years and Up
  • Time Required: 30 minutes (Does not include drying time)

The above age and time guidelines are estimates. This project can be modified to suit other ages and may take more or less time depending on your circumstances.

Materials Needed:

  • Small Pine Cones
  • Potpourri
  • Christmas Tree Lights
  • Large Mouth Jar or Ivy Bowl
  • Lace Material (or a doily)
  • Ribbon
  • Scissors

Instructions:
Place the pine cones and potpourri in the jar or bowl so it is about 3/4 of the way full. Gently tuck a small string of Christmas tree lights in the jar. Use a ruler or pencil to spread the lights out so they are evenly spaced and can be seen well on all sides. Make sure you have enough of the light string hanging out so it can easily be plugged in. Once the lights are in place, fill the jar or bowl the rest of the way with the potpourri.

Cut a circle out of a piece of lace material about 2-inches larger than the top of the jar. Lay it on the top of the jar, making sure the plug end of the light string is sticking out in the back under the lace. Secure the lace by tying a ribbon around the top edge of the jar. Instead of the lace material, you can use a doily and get the same great effect.

Once plugged in, this is a beautiful decoration and the scent is wonderful! This is a simple craft that makes a wonderful gift.
