Okay, by popular demand....here is the recipe for the spice/clove balls:
1 cup cinnamon
1/3 cup ground cloves
1/3 cup allspice
1/3 ground nutmeg
1 cup of water
1/2 cup of white glue
Mix all the dry ingredients together. Slowly add the water and the white glue. The mixture will be similar to cookie dough. Add more cinnamon if too sticky or more water if too dry.
Once completely mixed, cover tightly and refrigerate. I let mine sit in the frig all afternoon....in fact, I really didn't get to roll most of the balls until the next morning.
I made mine about the size of golf balls....the size is up to you. I inserted some waxed linen thread to be my hanger. Finally, just insert whole cloves into the balls. I didn't place the cloves too close together...cause as they dry the balls will shrink a bit. Let them air dry....you will need to rotate them every once and while so they don't get flat on one side.
I noticed that mine were really rock solid hard by the time I went to bed.
