Clove-Studded Orange Candle Holder Thingies

Here’s a great Caker Christmas craft that even kids can do.

Come to think of it, all caker crafts are easy enough for kids. Hmm. I’m not sure of the equation here, but if I were smarter, I’d definitely make a connection.

In any case, all you need are some oranges, some cloves and this little ditty playing in the background.

1. Cut the tops off oranges and scoop out enough so that a tea light can fit inside snugly
2. Pierce the orange skin with a skewer in a design of your choice
3. Push clove stems into the holes
4. Light the candles
5. Hug yourself


  1. I'll bet they smell amazing! And I Love your title!! Haha!

  2. Fabulous! I wonder if I could do something like this with hard boiled eggs...

  3. Hi theunforeseeablefuture (what a name!). These DO smell amazing. For the first couple of days. After that, I'd chuck them. Unless you like the smell of grey fruit.

    The Vintage Cabin: I suppose you could use hard boiled eggs, but then these would smell like clove-scented farts.

  4. I don't think anyone needs to smell clove-scented farts.
