There's something very festive about the smell of spices at Christmas and for years, orange pomanders have been made a displayed in European houses at Christmas. Using this as inspiration, I made the simplified version of an orange pomander into a candle holder.

Scoop out some of the flesh, to the depth of your tea light candle.
Using a skewer, pierce holes in the skin of the orange. You can create any design you like. I decided to go for simple stripes.

Insert a clove into each hole you have created. The smell is wonderful.
Place your tea light candle into the hollow you have created and light.
