How to Create Your Own Pomander

Pomanders have been used for centuries to scent and protect rooms and clothing. You can make your own with your family and each can be creative with their own design a little like creating jackolanterns!

Ingredients Needed:

Whole cloves

Small oranges (but not mandarines or tangerines)

Pretty ribbon

Directions:


1.  One popular tip is to plan out your design before you start adding cloves. So think about it, even make a sketch. Some peopl like to use the end of a knife to cut patterns in the orange peel before adding the cloves. The fun thing about this project is you can get creative so use your imagination.

2. Some people also like to put the ribbons in first so they can hold the pomander by the ribbon and look at it as the design progresses. Tie one or more ribbons around the orange as decoration and to hang the orange with. The ribbon can be held in place with sewing pins if to make sure that the ribbon does not come undone. You can also do this at the end of the project if you prefer.

3. Puncture holes in the skin of the orange with the pointed end of the clove. Often it’s easier if you poke a whole with a small nail or ice pick before to make the clove easier to insert. Depending on the size of your cloves you might have to experiment so that the wholes aren’t too big that the clove may fall out. You want a tight fit.

4.  Press the clove all the way in, until the rounded end of the clove is sticking out of the orange and the rest of the clove is all the way in the skin.

5. Continue to do this all around the orange.  The cloves can be arranged in fun designs or they can blanket the orange.  There all all kinds of patterns you make and we will try to give you some examples below.

6. You can also leave the ribbon off, and instead, put the pomanders in a bowl or on a plate to decorate and scent your holiday table or any time of year.
