Clove Pomanders

Just the smell of oranges reminds me of Christmas.  I love that our counter top bowls have been filled with mandarin oranges and our fridge full of the delicious citrus fruits of the season.  I wanted to make a pomander to fill the house with even more of the delicious smells of Christmas.

While the girls were at school Matthew and I sat down with our cloves, chopsticks and an orange while Nathan bounced away in the chair beside us.
