3. Cloves-in-Apple

It was a good day that time in 2nd grade when we made these during arts and crafts. They smelled so good that I would make them at home all the time, year round. I'm sure my mother was thrilled that I would constantly deplete the household supply of cloves. Sure it's not a beautiful centerpiece, but hide one in the kitchen and everyone will be asking you what that heavenly smell is.
