Orange Pomander candles are an easy and fun holiday DIY that look festive and smell AMAZING. These spiced gems are fantastic for holiday dinner parties or simply for adding a bright and fragrant touch to your home decor to lift spirits in the wintry months.You will need:Desired number of thick-skinned orangesDesired amount of whole clovesTealightsToothpick or skewer stick with sharp pointSharp pairing knifeSmall spoonInstructions:To create the perfect opening for your candle, place a tealight on top of the orange and trace the base of the tealight with your knife point. An X-Acto knife also works well for this. Remove the tealight and use your paring knife to make a diagonal cut toward the center of the orange and cut along the traced line until the circle can be removed. Use a small spoon to remove the cone-shaped cutout from the top of the orange and press the tealight candle into the opening. it should be snug. If necessary, slice a small amount off the base of the fruit to create a flat surface for the Pomander to prevent it from tipping over. Use your toothpick or skewer stick to poke holes into the skin of the orange in the design you would like for your cloves (don't make the puncture holes too big or your cloves will fall out!). Get creative! Insert the small end of the whole cloves into the holes you just created in the orange. Admire your creation; call your mother; brag about your creative genius on Facebook (don't forget to tag us!).As a decorating alternative, Pomander balls can be made without the tealights and placed in a bowl for a festive and fragrant centerpiece or arranged among evergreen garland for a stunningly natural holiday look.Tip: extra oranges and cloves can be added to our favorite recipe for Crock Pot Spiced Citrus Apple Cider!
