25 Days of Simple Christmas-Making Pomander Balls

Welcome to the 25 Days of Simple Christmas!  Each day I will be posting an idea about keeping the holidays simple- so that we can focus on Christ and the real meaning of Christmas!

While Christmas is such a special day, so much of the joy gets lost in the busyness.  
Each day I will be writing about a simple way to celebrate the season.  To focus on family, joy, and memories, without the elaborate extras that can bring added stress. Simple can be more meaningful if it gives us more time to focus on the huge GIFT we are awaiting-Jesus Christ, our Savior.

Today I am telling you about another simple craft-
Pomander Balls!

A few years back we did a wonderful Colonial Christmas unit study.  It was a great way to learn about Christmas, taking a break from our usual routine.  We had been studying this period in history so it worked out perfectly.

One of the activities was making pomander balls. We had so much fun and the results were beautiful.

All you need is an orange, (or we used clementines) and some whole cloves.

Place the cloves into  the fruit in patterns or completely cover the entire fruit.

Set it out and enjoy the beauty and scent.  The cloves will preserve the fruit and it will last a very long time, even many years!

Another very easy, simple craft that brings joy to all ages.
