A Christmas weapon?

Toby (who has no sense of smell, so this is totally lost on him) had never seen a pomander before. He asked if I was making some kind of weapon. A Christmas bommy knocker perhaps?

This does smell amazing. I checked out some online tutorials- kind of googled a bunch and then did it the way I thought best, which is pretty much just tying on the ribbon first, use a skewer to poke holes in the orange and then push in your cloves. One tutorial did mention "you should do this over a tray, or you might lose cloves in the sheets." Good tip lady.
