To create a pomander this holiday season, all you have to do is poke holes all over an orange in any pattern you wish, and then plug the holes with cloves. As the orange dries, it shrinks, and reacts with the cloves to produce a welcoming, Christmas aroma.

What a cute idea.  Leave doughnuts for the elves on Christmas Eve (along with Santas cookies and the Rain deer food)  These little doughnuts are actually Cheerios decorated with powdered sugar, cinnamon and sugar and icing with sprinkles.
