Holiday Stove Top Potpourri~A Pinterest Find!

 One of the things I have been shopping for lately is some type of candle, or anything, really, that would smell like Christmas through the entire house. Well, wouldn't you know, I was clicking my way through Pinterest the other night, when I came upon this Holiday Stove Top Potpourri Mix. It is exactly what I was looking for! It smells amazing, and it will last all season long, with very little upkeep. You gotta love it!!
Holiday Stove Top Potpourri Mix
1 Orange (or just the peel)
1/2 cup Cranberries
1 tablespoon Whole Cloves
3 sticks Cinnamon
bit of Grated Nutmeg (if desired)

Quarter the orange. Put the orange and all the other ingredients into your saucepan. 
Fill the pan with water.
Place on the stove, on your smallest burner, on a low setting. 
Refill water as needed.
Don't let the water completely evaporate. It's a good idea to just fill
the pot everyday when you turn it on.
This one mix will stay good for weeks. It will turn brown 
from the heat, but it will still smell incredible!

My Pinterest Find came from Calli at Make It Do.
Check out her site to see the creative ways she has
 to package this potpourri mix as a gift!
