I love how potpourri adds such a sweet smelling, decorative touch to a home. You can use potpourri to make a decorative heart to express your love for someone on Valentine’s Day or any other time of the year!
Here’s how to make a quick and easy potpourri heart:
- A mixing bowl dedicated to crafts
- Cooking spray
- An old spoon for stirring
- Potpourri of your choice
- White craft glue
- Metal cookie cutter in the shape of a heart
Step 1 – Assembly your supplies
You probably already have the mixing bowl, old spoon, newspaper and cooking spray. You should be able to buy the potpourri, white craft glue, and metal cookie cutter at your local craft store.
Step 2 – Prepare your potpourri
Fill a measuring cup full of potpourri and pour it into your mixing bowl. Slowly start adding craft glue to the potpourri while stirring to thoroughly mix the two components. It may take up to 1/3 of a cup of glue to thoroughly coat the potpourri. You’ll want the potpourri and glue to be well mixed with no clumps of glue visible. Although the glue will appear white at first, it’ll dry clear.
Step 3 – Prepare your cookie cutter
Spray the inside of your heart shaped cookie cutter with cooking spray. Allow the cooking spray to dry before proceeding.
Step 4 – Fill the cookie cutter
Lay your cookie cutter on a sheet of newspaper. Use your hands to carefully fill the inside of the cookie cutter with your potpourri/glue mixture. Be sure the cookie cutter is completely packed with potpourri. Allow the potpourri/glue mixture to dry in the cookie cutter for ten to fifteen minutes. Be careful not to leave the potpourri in the cookie cutter longer as it could be difficult to remove.
Step 5 – Carefully remove the cookie cutter
