Potpourri holders can be almost any shape, but are more commonly a shallow bowl. They have tops which allow the fragrance but not the bits to escape. So, this can be either a 1 or 2 piece project.
You could turn just the bottom vessel and then use a manufactured lid or you can make both pieces. I've seen lids turned then pierced and turned with a lattice effect. Both are very stunning and popular!
