How to make Orange Clove Pomanders




Take a few minutes and put together some pomanders.



The spiked fruit works as a fragrant air freshener for 2 months and makes a festive decoration for your home.






For some details instructions, check this recipe



Or you can follow along with my project:


oranges
whole cloves

ground cinnamon

ground nutmeg

essential oil ( I used SAGE)

ribbons

skewer



Use the skewer to make holes in the orange skin. Try inserting a few cloves to see how much spacing you'll need. Work about 5-10 holes ahead of your cloves to make simple designs.





Allow the orange skin to dry (overnight). Combine the cinnamon, nutmeg and oil in a ziplock bag and roll each orange in the mixture. Tap off the loose powder.



Wrap the orange in ribbons; you can make loops for hanging or bow on top for display.
