DIY Potpourri Pomegranate Ornaments for a Floral Christmas
Add to a beautiful floral Christmas tree DIY potpourri decoration ideas using faux pomegranates and velvet trim for a scented holiday.
Welcome back to A Very Global Christmas where my good friend Stephanie from Casa Watkins Living and I share twelve days of globally inspired decorating ideas and DIYs. We love doing this series every year and it has become my favorite way to kick off the holiday season.
Potpourri Decoration Ideas for Christmas
Yesterday we started off with Stephanie’s annual My Home Style Christmas Tree Blog Hop which is happening all week long with dozens of different bloggers and various styles of trees. Make sure to come back every day for more tree inspiration and over the next three weeks for A Very Global Christmas!
I shared my dream floral tree with pinks, reds, and purple flowers and leaf stems that match my grandmother’s portrait and our front room curtains. More is more in my book so I added decorative moss balls and DIY potpourri pomegranate ornaments.
Everything smells so nice when you are crafting with potpourri. It all started when I found a bag of “Partridge in a Pear Tree” potpourri from Tuesday Morning. After a flashback of my Advent Calendar with the same theme, I thought of ways to incorporate the inexpensive item into this year’s Christmas theme.
Originally I thought about filling plastic ornaments with the potpourri but after finding bags of faux pomegranates on clearance I divided to make potpourri pomegranate ornaments instead.
Potpourri is an inexpensive substitute for dried floral I think. Especially if you look at discount stores like Tuesday Morning and Ross.
Today’s story is for DIY Christmas ornaments so let’s get to it.
How to Make Potpourri Pomegranete Ornamnets

- Faux Pomegranetes (Oranges or pears would be perfect for Christmas too!)
- A bag of scented potpourri or other dried floral pieces
- Velvet Ribbon cut into 6-8 inch strips
- Hot Glue Gun
- Put a dot of glue near the pomegranate’s thick stem. Place the end of a velvet strip with the velvet side facing out. Hold in place a few seconds.
- Put another dot of hot glue right on top of the ribbon edge and fold the second edge over to glue in place. Hold in place a few seconds.
- Add more glue on top of the ribbon and add a small piece of potpourri. Hold in place a few seconds.
- Keep glue potpourri pieces around the stem until you have a look you like! You can alternate between a couple of different colors or stick with one type. I enjoyed keeping it organic looking.
Let completely dry before hanging. I kept my hot glue gun on the lower setting and the pieces dried in place quickly. I also appreciate that the lower setting doesn’t burn as much when you accidentally touch the glue!
When in doubt, use tone-on-tone with your material colors. I love all warm or cool tones together! The velvet curtains near the tree were my color inspiration.
The potpourri and pomegranates will keep making an appearance with more ideas this week! Did you know that potpourri originated in France and that pomegranates are used during Christmas in Greece?
