I have zero thanksgiving decorations, so I came up with this little project. It doesn't really need any explanation, just push some cloves into some clementines and spell a word. You could get all fancy with fonts and it might be good to sketch the letters on first. I just did it freehand (and I'm sure you can tell). Clementines have a thinner skin than oranges so it makes pushing the cloves in much easier. This is a great project for kids and a good spelling lesson to boot. My daughter is really into letters right now and it went over big. I didn't dry them so they won't keep, but they still smell pretty. Now we just have to make some hand turkeys and we're set!
