I have made these with fabric. You can use the saucer of a clay pot, fabric or felt the color of a pie crust, potpourri, and sprinkle a tiny bit of cinnomon on it when you are done. You hot glue an outside "crust" by folding the fabric halfway back over itself and go around the saucer, and then fill it with potpourri and then weave the strips over the top. If you use felt fabric you can use those scissors that leave a serated side to them. I prefered a tan/ cream colored linen and ironed my edges under. Then I used a roll of that bonding sewing ribbon(?). I don't sew but it was a roll of linen that had the sides ironed under already and I think they use it for hemming?!
It was already the perfect size for weaving strips. These can go in a warm oven after you are done baking and it is turned off. Add scented oil to refurbish when needed. And don't forget to take it out of the oven before you crank up the heat again!
