I made one of these before. I used lavender, and because fresh lavender is so expensive, I mixed it with flax seed. I've also been told to use rice as a filler. It still smells good, you just don't have to use so much of the expensive stuff. ^_^

Yes, you could use potpouri, aslong as the smell is not too strong for your liking. You wouldn't be able to use string instead of wax, as it wouldn't burn correctly.
