The winter has started all over the nation, snow coming down heavily in the north even have reached places like Virginia and we are able to enjoy some winter wonderland. So as long as it is freezing and I don’t have to use my no space left freezer we made fun Christmas Ice Lanterns.
You will need some holiday greenery trimmings, a plastic or cardboard container (milk box), cup and tape.
Rinse the large container and trim the greenery
Next place the greenery in the container
and place the cup inside it. In actuality it is easier to place the cup inside first and then maneuver the greenery by squeezing it between the two walls.
This way you can place your berries in exact places
other then having them float on top or sink to the bottom
tape the cup to the container and pour water between the two containers
there is this funny thing called pressure so if you do not tape them, or don’t tape them well, the cup will be pushed up
place outside and wait till they freeze.
You are on your own with time lengh.
Run hot water over the container and loosen it up. Pour some water in the cup and remove when loose.
Now that they are ready place in your favorite spot, hoping that it will not warm up enough to melt it.
place candle tealights inside the ice structures and light up
They will look even more beautiful in the night. One thing to keep in mind is that they will melt a bit between days and nights especially in the south so place them where you want them because moving may not be an option later.
Either way enjoy your Snow Days.
