We enjoy decorating the house to look festive at Christmas and We love all those fabulous Christmassy aromas - orange, clove, mandarin, cinnamon, sage, nutmeg and pine - wafting through the house.
Spiced orange - you will need:
- A firm, fresh citrus fruit. If it is too shrivelled or too mushy, it will be harder to poke with cloves.
- A few toothpicks. A nail works well, too.
- A jar of whole cloves.
- A citrus zester or a sharp vegetable peeler.
- An elastic or two.
- Kitchen twine, if you decide to hang any pomanders.

Handmade Christmas decorations with cinnamon sticks are not only easy to create but also very beautiful, charming and aromatic. They are wonderful for Christmas tree decorating and creating fragrant holiday table centrepieces. Window decorations and Christmas wreaths, wall and fireplace decorated with cinnamon garlands enhance the spirit of the beautiful winter holiday.
Home decorating with cinnamon sticks is fun, offering great Christmas crafts for kids and adults to create fragrant, attractive and eco-friendly holiday decor.
You can combine cinnamon sticks with berries, pine cones, nuts and fruits, using colourful ribbons, strips of burlap or cotton fabrics, natural ropes or twines to design striking and elegant holiday table centrepieces and holiday home decorations.
