Is there anyone else out there who doesn’t decorate for fall? Maybe it’s me being practical, or maybe it’s just lazy. Probably the latter. Plus we just moved into this house in September, so I’m also going to throw that out as an excuse. But really, I don’t like having lots of different decorations for my house that I have to rotate in and out. Plus, I am generally a fan of a more minimalist approach to decor, with fewer trinkets and whatnot. Other than the pumpkin on our stoop, I haven’t done any fall decorating. 🙂
But that doesn’t mean that I am not enjoying fall and everything that comes along with it. I absolutely love cold-weather scents like cinnamon, pumpkin, clove, rosemary, and pine. And one of the easiest ways to make your home feel cozier when the temperatures start to drop is by filling your space with a seasonal scent.
When I was little, my mom and I used to take oranges and stuff them with whole cloves. The mixture of the orange and clove scents was so lovely, and it still always reminds me of fall and winter. DIY fall stovetop potpourri is a great way to fill your home with a variety of cold-weather scents and make your home feel like fall with zero decorating. You can even use kitchen scraps for your stovetop potpourri!
For this batch, I used red apples, oranges, cinnamon sticks, cloves, and rosemary. You can dump everything into a pot or dehydrate the mixture and give it as a gift.
