Orange Cloves

I think a big part of decorating for the holidays is making your home smell delicious. I know it isn't even Thanksgiving yet but these can be made ahead of time to decorate for both holidays. This DIY is pretty easy and a fun activity to do to get in the holiday spirit. I remember making these oranges when I was little. We would all sit around the kitchen table with Christmas music on and goodies to eat to pass the time. The only down side is your thumb might get a little sore from pushing in the cloves. It's worth the pain! They smell just like the holidays.

Orange Cloves
Large oranges
Whole cloves

All you need to do is push the cloves into the orange rind to make a homemade potpourri. Why does that word look weird?
