Hanging Potpourri Holders

Thank you to StorkNet member Debbie (Licagita) for submitting this idea!

hanging potpourri holder

Materials:

  • Wooden embroidery hoop
  • Scrap of lace material (In the example, a lace piece with a pattern was used. These pieces are hard to find.)
  • Scrap of fabric
  • Ruffled lace (measure to fit around the hoop)
  • Potpourri
  • Hot glue gun or craft glue

Directions:

  1. Frame lace in the embroidery hoop making sure that the clamp is on top so you can use it as a hanger.

  2. Trim the lace so that you can turn over the edge and glue it to the back rim of the inside hoop. (This creates a neat edge.)

  3. Trace the outside of the hoop on fabric and cut the circle out. Glue the fabric to the back of the hoop leaving a portion unglued to leave access for filling.

  4. Fill with potpourri then glue the remaining fabric down. (Fill entirely with potpourri, unless you want the background fabric to show through.)

  5. Glue the ruffled lace around the front edge of the hoop, and embellish with dried flowers or a ribbon bow if you choose.
