Ice Lantern How To

In our traditional visit to welcome Santa Clause at Bachman's Floral in Richfield, we stumbled across this Ice Lantern mold. It is such a fun thing to make for the holidays. I had so much fun making them that I ended up gifting them to friends for their Christmas decor. The mold was just under $11.00 and after Christmas I picked up a few more for only $2.74. You gotta love a sale!!! I'm brainstorming what can go into a lantern for Valentines Day and will have so much fun with this again next Christmas! Check out this website: www.articicelantern.com It is as simple as using a hot glue gun to secure the items you choose to freeze in your lantern and then fill it up with water and freeze. The website has good instructions.

  4. I decorate the ice lanterns by sticking on ice "cubes" in the shape of stars or snowflakes. If the lanterns are outside in the cold and the ice decorations are moistened, they just weld themselves together.
