Making a lighted potpourri jar is really simple. You can make lovely rose crafts like this, using your own rose petals from your garden. They make wonderful homemade gifts, that will be treasured for a very long time.
You can vary the look of your potpourri jar, by using different flowers and materials in the jar. For instance, if you want a Christmas (or) Holiday lighted potpourri jar, you could add tiny pine cones, and some dried citrus slices.
The color of the ribbon changes the look also.
So put those rose petals to good use, impress your friends and family, and save a few $$'s on gifts!!

* 3. Small strand of Christmas lights
White or colored the choice is yours. A small strand of 25 lights is plenty.
* 4. A small round white lace doily
It needs to cover the top of the potpourri jar and hang over just a bit.
*5. Piece of ribbon, or lace
Ribbon or lace, long enough to wrap around the top of the jar, and make a nice bow!
Your potpourri Jar will perfume the air with lovely scents as the warm lights warm the potpourri.
They are nice on a side table in a hallway or entryway. This Potpourri Jar is especially nice in a bath, to perfume the room while you let 'Calgon take you away!'
~Note: As a precaution, (like your Christmas tree, or any other electrical fixture)Don't leave the jar plugged in unattended.~
