Swedish clove and clementine pomanders bring me back to the cozy holidays I spent in Sweden.
Fun fact, I am a dual citizen of both the United States of America and of Sweden. Because of this, I studied in Sweden during middle school and during this time I was immersed and fell in love with Swedish culture.
I remember one of my favorite holiday traditions in the winter was to make this Swedish Clementine and Clove Pomanders. Tables would be set up at holiday festivals where kids could sit and decorate their citrus fruits with cloves.
I remember fondly how my hands smelled like cloves for hours after (despite washing my hands). The whole ordeal smells like Christmas (quite literally).
A fun and quite simple activity to do with kids, making these Clementine and Clove Pomanders would make a nice holiday tradition for families!
Enough about me and these pomanders, let’s talk about how to make these amazing decorations!
