Pomanders, beautiful citrus fruits  that have been studded with spicy whole dried cloves, have been used since medievil times and still make beautiful holiday decorations today. Usually made with oranges, a lime pomander feels fresh and pretty and who doesn't like the scent of fresh limes? These beautiful spheres will perfume your room with a natural citrus and spice fragrance that when dried properly, can last up to a year.

This is an easy and elegant holiday decoration that will take minutes to complete. Place ribbon around the lime as if you were wrapping a present and tie to secure with a small bow.  Push cloves into the lime in a row on both sides of the ribbon-it may be easier to poke small holes in the lime flesh with a nail or tooth pick. Place pomanders in a silver or crystal bowl and you have a fabulous centerpiece that will last for ages.
