DIY Simmer Pots

We got a baby tree this year—we just didn't have the space for a big one...plus, I wasn't really feeling the idea of having to clean up pine needles everyday! So a small one we got...and it's pretty cute and perfect. The only downfall: it doesn't quite deliver in the scent department; as in, that yummy pine smell we equate with the holidays sadly isn't there. To compensate, I stirred up a couple pots of fresh, holiday goodness—and thankfully, everything is now right with the world.
