You need an orange, whole cloves and a toothpick. Gently prick the orange with a toothpick, and then insert the pointed end of the whole clove into the orange. Repeat until entire orange is studded with cloves.
Then take a mixture of equal parts cinnamon and orris root, and roll the ball in the mixture, coating the ball. Then place the orange in a dark room for two to three weeks for it to harden. Then it is ready to use or give away for gifts for Christmas.
If you find whole cloves expensive in your area, check in the bulk department of your grocery store. You can also can purchase them online in bulk.
