I am looking for a project that uses liquid potpourri and Knox Gelatine (I think) to make little scented jars.

Hi,

Just use the liquid potpourri as the liquid in the Knox Gelatin directions. (Follow the directions on the package.) Pour in the container. It will evaporate over time and form a hard piece in the bottom of the jar. Pop it out and mix up another batch. This is a welcome gift to anyone.

Easy Potpourri Gel craft
1 cup concentrated liquid potpourri
2 envelopes Knox unflavored gelatine
Empty jar

Heat potpourri until almost to a boil. Remove from heat and add 2 envelopes of gelatine. Stir to dissolve gelatine and pour into clean decorative jar. Place piece of plastic wrap over jar and secure with rubber band. Either place in refrigerator for quick set or leave out overnight on counter. Cover with piece of starched "lace" and wrap with ribbon to decorate.

Before using, remove plastic wrap and recover jar with lace cover.

Try simmering 2 cups of liquid potpourri, then add 2 packets of gelatin, stir until dissolved. Pour into jars, then refrigerate until set!
