Simple/Fun: Ice Lanterns

I came across this project on Pinterest that I’m definitely going to try when the temperatures get a bit cooler: ice lanterns.  Jason and Jenna loved freezing Star Wars Lego figures in ice this summer, so this is right up their alley. Now we just need a cool evening when we can sit out on the patio and watch as the candles slowly melt the ice.

Such a simple idea, but the results are incredibly beautiful. The one on the left is made using a balloon as the mold and the one on the right uses a bucket. Instructions and details from Willowday here and here.

    • What a great idea. We eliminated artificial dyes from our diet about a year ago, but I still have a pantry full of food coloring. I love finding non-food ways to use these up! Thanks!
