Nestle Holiday Gift Basket {Giveaway}

by Christine - From Dates to Diapers on December 22, 2009

My mom always set us up with fun things to do and create, especially around Christmas, but there is one incredibly easy craft that I particularly remember – We pressed cloves into the skin of an orange, rolled them in spices, and hung them as decorations. The sweet aroma filled our home, and to this day I remember that spicy scent with fondness.

As I was browsing through NestléFamily.com, I came across a similar holiday craft and look forward to making these with my kiddos this week ::

Create a citrus candleholder

All it takes is a few minutes to transform an ordinary orange into a lovely candleholder. You’ll need an orange, a metal tea light, some cloves and a paring knife. Cut a hole in the top of the orange that’s a little bit larger than the diameter of the tea light. Create a space for the candle to sit, and place it in. Next press cloves into the orange skin. Light the candle, then sit back and enjoy the delicious spicy-citrus scent.

I really like the tradition or idea of wrapping your gifts from your travels in local newspapers. Whenever I travel, I get my family their presents where I’m at – but I never thought of that. Great idea.
