FIND accent pieces. Anything from candles, pine cones, flowers, glass stones, sea shells, or even uncooked pasta. These accent pieces should represent the color of your potpourri. Use mirrors under the objects to create unity, and add stones whenever possible. Potpourri is great for decorating.

CHOOSE a potpourri color choice that represents your color scheme. You will get the hang of how you want things to look once you start salvaging for pieces to use in your potpourri pieces.
