NOTE: FOR FRAGRANCE & DECORATION ONLY.
Stick cloves into oranges.
You can either cover the whole orange or make a pattern. (Cloves are expensive, so patterns are cheaper)
Firmly Roll orange immediately in the spice mixture. (A bit of moisture makes the spices stick.) You may need more spices depending on how many oranges you make.
Place the oranges in a decorative bowl with christmas greens for a fragrant, country holiday accent.
They will last for the whole season.

These are fun to make with kids or friends. My mom and I enjoy making them together. They would also make a nice gift in a lined holiday basket.
