dried fruits/ christmas potpourri
I have been drying oranges, limes, cranberries, etc. to use in Christmas Crafts. I would like to combine them to make a potpourri that I can use in some of my crafts. Is there a certain proportion of each that every uses? I was thinking of adding cinnamon (sticks and/or powder), ground and whole cloves, whole allspice, anise, and possiblily some other ground spices. I am a bit scared to just throw it together because I don't want to waste it if it's wrong.
Do I have to use a fixative? I was hoping I didn't need it.
I would like to put some of this into muslin (or cut up old sheet material) bags to use with my crafts, but I am thinking the powder will come through and make a mess. I hope I have asked too many questions or totally confused anyone here.
