Orange pomander from Martha

I noticed this idea on the Martha site a while ago and tonight I got around to giving this a go with the kids. It helps that we have a huge orange tree in our garden which is perpetually laden with fruit.

Martha suggests using an elastic band to wrap around the fruit to give you a nice straight line.

Of course, children don’t want to make nice straight lines.

Even if I do.

They want to make funny faces. With hair!

We placed them on a plate as a table centerpiece along with some pine cones and some orange leaves.

I didn’t preserve these oranges so I don’t expect they will last very long. Luckily we have more fruit than we can eat on the tree, so we can always make more.
