Decorate your candle with dried flowers or cinnamon sticks for decoration.

Natural potpourri

Still in the scents category, potpourri! In a pretty container, place rose petals, lavender flowers, garden leaves, cinnamon sticks, citrus fruits...etc. Anything that smells good!
Cover the composition with a cloth and leave everything to dry for a week in a dry place, away from light.
Once dry, you can decorate it with flowers, bread apples, pebbles to create a real decoration to offer.
