Each year, Paul and I make these pomanders to
give our friends; and of course several to keep. We still have one from two years
ago hanging in our family room! Enjoy
Your Host, Brad
12 Navel Oranges (or other variety of perfectly
Approx. 24 feet of thin maroon ribbon
Approx. 48 small-headed pins
480 whole cloves
12 maroon tassels
Starting at the top of the orange, pin a piece of
ribbon directly into the orange. Bring the ribbon around the orange and pin again at
top where the ribbon meets the other end. Snip ribbon and, going 45 degrees to the
right, pin another piece of ribbon at the top of the orange and bring around again.
The orange should now look divided into 4 equal quarters.
Run a row of cloves (about 10) down each quarter
between the ribbon by pushing the pointed end of the clove into the orange. You will
now have four rows of ribbons and four rows of cloves.
Pin a tassel on the bottom of each orange and make
a ribbon bow on the top with a loop for hanging.
