Let's make your house smell like Christmas shall we?

First, grab yourself a handful of tangerines, or other citrus fruit you might have handy, and a large handful of whole cloves.  Just push the pointy side of the clove into your tangerine.  Seriously, that's it!  You can add as many or as few cloves as you like.  The more cloves, the more smell, so go clove crazy!  Make a festive design like a diamond, or a heart.  OR, if you're a creative genius, go balls to the wall with a nativity scene, or the grinch face!  Better send me photos if you can manage these.  Mine are super boring, let's move on.

Once the tangerines begin to dry out, they will fill your house with orangey clovey aroma!  You can load these up in a bowl, or add some ribbon and make them fragrant ornaments for your tree.  Give them as gifts, hand them out to your neighbs.  Put them in your bedroom, keep them in your pocket (just kidding).  These will stay good for quite a while, up to several weeks or even a month.
