Fall Scented Potpourri Balls

Use dried leaves, berries, and rinds to make potpourri balls with heavenly scents.

These potpourri balls will add texture, color, and wafting fragrance to the entry or any other room. You can assemble balls with only one element or use your favorite potpourri mix to create balls that combine varying scents and colors.

Start with 3- or 4-inch plastic foam craft spheres. Use hot glue to attach the potpourri elements all around the balls. Overlap the decorative pieces to completely cover the foam.

Display the balls in individual glass vases, on decorative plates, or together in a larger bowl.

If desired, refresh scents from time to time using drops of aromatic oils. Tiny bottles of various fragrances are readily available from craft stores.

See a list of materials below.

Materials

  • 3- or 4-inch plastic foam craft spheres
  • Hot-glue gun and hot-glue sticks
  • Dried potpourri mix or other dried materials such as bay leaves, preserved fall leaves, dried fruit rinds, miniature pinecones, dried berries, and so on.
