DIY: Orange & Clove Pomander

I would like to share this yummy citrus treat to spice up chilly November days. You may be familiar with this winter tradition and maybe even thought of making one for yourself. Well, here you go; directions for your own orange and clove pomander! You can customize your piece to your taste, using as few or as many cloves as desired. The orange can be hung and displayed with ribbon or displayed in a pretty bowl on your dinner table. The yummy smells will invite the cool season into your home.

  • Large Orange
  • Whole Cloves (available in the spice section of most super markets)  
  • Toothpick
  • Ribbon

  • Using a toothpick, poke holes in your orange so the cloves will fit easier - completely cover it or make a cute pattern (think about leaving room to tie a ribbon around the orange)
  • Insert your cloves into the pre-made holes
  • Tie a ribbon around the orange to hang and display
  • Enjoy!
