What do you like to do on a snow day?
Me? I like to do fun projects!
Orange and clove is my favorite sent, so I LOVE making orange clove pomander balls to place around the house and in my room. Cloves are a natural preservative, so the oranges are essentially preserved by the cloves. These balls can be kept up to a year and smell amazing!
You just need two things to make these balls – an orange and some cloves!
They are relaxing and simple to make, I like to do a lot at once so I can give them to people or just place them everywhere in the house…and take a deep breath!
Orange Clove Pomander Balls
- 1 small orange or clementine
- about 1/3 cup cloves
- Starting in the center of the orange/clementine, start sticking the whole cloves through the peel. Stick the pointy side in, and leave the ball side out.
- Continue sticking the cloves into the orange in a circular pattern. (I find that going in circles around the orange/clementine looks best and is easiest to do).
*Make sure to cover the whole orange in cloves because the cloves will preserve the orange and allow it to keep for over a year without forming mold.
