How to make a pomander
What you’ll need:
Criss-cross a ribbon round your orange and tie in a bow.
Use an old biro or a toothpick to make a hole in your orange, then push in a clove. Then stud cloves all the way round.
Carry on pushing in cloves until your whole orange is covered. This may take a while, so if you”re short on time (or cloves!) try lines or star-shapes instead – see the picture at the top of this page!
Top tip: Hang your pomander from a Christmas tree branch, your front door, or over a fireplace and let the festive fragrance waft through the house!

i think you need to dry these if you want them to last, otherwise they soon start to rot.
