DIY Orange Clove Pomanders

The guests are coming, the guests are coming! If you love citrus, try these DIY orange clove pomanders. They will fill the air with a festive scent for the holidays. Whether you are entertaining friends or just having a family gathering, place a bowl with these fragrant fruits in any room. Pomanders can be made with most any fruit, but I love the sweet smell of oranges the best.

Oranges and Cloves


Take your cloves and poke them right into the orange. If you prefer, take a toothpick or nail and puncture holes in the orange. A ball point pen works well too. Once you have pierced the skin of the orange, place a clove in each hole. Repeat with as many cloves as desired. You can place the cloves at random, or make pretty patterns. I chose to arrange my cloves to make the word JOY. What patterns do you like to make? Let me know in the comments below. Cheers!
