Let your children have a whole lot of fruit fun with this fun-filled fruit craft. They'll be amazed at the sweet smell their 'hedgehog' emits, keeping bedrooms and cupboards smelling fresh.
This craft gives them a fun, sweet smelling pomander to keep their bedroom smelling clean and fresh.

Make sure you have a clean and tidy workspace. Cover your workspace with plastic or brown paper.

Step 1

Tie a ribbon around the orange as though you were tying a parcel, marking out four quarters on the orange. At the top of your orange, tie two tight bows.

Once your entire orange is decorated with cloves, you can use two of the loops in your bows to attach the pomander to a light fitting, a nail in the wall, or even to a Christmas Tree for a sweet smelling decoration!

And there you have it! Your very own fun and fresh fruity pomander!
NOTE: If the holes you have made with your toothpick have become smaller by the time you put the cloves in, just poke them with the toothpick again.
TIP: If the cloves are hurting your fingers when you push them in, use a sewing thimble to protect your skin.
