Instructions for making a Mason Jar Potpourri Warmer:

Use the diamond tipped drill bit to make a hole in the back of the Mason Jar. Take a look at our instructional video on the home page if you need help drilling into glass.

Insert the light string through the back of the Mason Jar.

(If you’re not comfortable drilling glass, you can also run the light string out of the top of the jar. The light string will be secured by the rubber band.)

Add potpourri from the top of the jar. It’s best to do this in succession, add a few lights then add some potpourri, more lights, more potpourri until the jar is filled.

Cut a piece of cloth to cover the mouth of the jar, approx. 5 inches in diameter. Any cotton fabric will do just fine. Make sure to cut it large enough so the cloth can hang over the sides.

Secure the cloth with a rubber band.

Cover the rubber band with a piece of rope, colorful raffia or a decorative ribbon.

Plug in your Mason Jar Potpourri Warmer and enjoy as the scent of warming potpourri fills your home.

As the scent fades over time, simply remove the cloth and add  fresh potpourri or drop a few drops of fragrance oil or essential oils on the cloth.

Lighted potpourri jars are such an easy craft that they make ideal hostess gifts for impromptu holiday gatherings.

Giving a Holiday Potpourri Mason Jar as a gift? Add a few festive ornaments or other seasonal decorations, wrap in cellophane and tie with curly ribbons.

Add your unique touch to make illuminated potpourri holiday jars for gift giving or holiday decorating.
