If you can make these lines to follow a pattern; then it will look much better. Otherwise simply make the holes one after another. But be careful while making these holes, so that they do not come too close to each other. Maintain a safe distance between every hole to keep the skin of the orange intact.
In this step, you can involve your kid, too. Pour all the cloves in a plate or over a piece of paper. Now ask your kid to fill each of the holes with a clove, in such a way that the flower of the cloves remain on top. When this step is completely done, you can see a pattern of cloves over the orange.

Use an orange or brown colored satin ribbon to tie the gathering of the net. Keep this sachet on the corner table or hang from the wall. Anyway you use, within minutes your room will get filled up with the spicy orange fragrance.
