Level of Difficulty: Easy

Decorative apple or orange Pomander Balls.

Supplies Needed
4 Apples or Oranges
1- 2 ounces  whole Cloves
1/2 ounce Cinnamon powder
1/2 ounce of Nutmeg powder
1/4 ounce Clove powder
1/4 ounce Orris root powder

Using an Apple or thin skinned Orange,  stick whole cloves into the skin. You can either make a nice design on the majority of the surface or sporadically place cloves over entire surface. Mix the Nutmeg, Cinnamon, Clove and Orris powder together and place into a clean bowl. Roll the punctured Apple or Orange in the spices. Place onto a table center piece, be sure to rotate ever so often to allow air to reach entire surface and ensure an even dry. Or you can tie a nice ribbon around it and hang. The Apple or Orange, if dried properly, will shrink and harden without going bad.
