DIY Potpourri

I was sitting in the doctors office with my daughter thumbing through a magazine and run across this. I thought this was simple as usually have most of these ingredients already:
DIY Potpourri:Dry Rose Petals
1/4 cup cloves
1 cup allspice
10 3in cinnamon sticks broke in pieces
8 small bay leaves - (got me there)
4 whole nutmeg
3 tbs star anise
2 tbs whole cardamon pods
If you want to kick it a notch you can add a few drops of perfume oil

Something like dried orange peel can add nice color to mix. A little lavender can also add a subtle layer of scent that works well with the spices.
