When was the last time you made cloved oranges? For me it was when I was in Brownies. So, maybe ten years ago?
All I used was a can of cloves,
some oranges and a wooden skewer.
I planned out an elaborate design for each orange, and then realized that oranges are round and it's hard to make straight lines on a round item. So I opted for more simple designs. Really, you should have seen my depiction of The Last Supper that I was going to make on the oranges.
I would poke a hole in the orange and then push in a clove.
Cloves are pointy by nature, so you wouldn't have to use a skewer to make a hole, it just saves you a little time to poke a hole first.
And the smell of the clove mixed with the juice of the orange is heavenly.
They only took about five minutes each to make and the cost of three oranges and a can of cloves was around $6.00.
Those Brownies know something about making easy and classic crafts.
