Very cool. Literally. Unfortunately I only have a 20 minute window between 2am and 3 am in Feb sometime. LOL. I really like them and my front door faces north...we shall see.

I used to do something similar with cranberries, basil leaves, and lime slices for holiday punch.

Pretty.

They are really lovely, but I'd have to keep it in the deep freeze! Very Happy

I hope to NEVER be in a climate where they can remain outside long enough for me to enjoy them. : )

Actually I understand it was very cold here in Maryland last winter, so I just might.

LOL think I'll pass this along to my sister-in-law who lives in Norway.

If I make one of these and hang it outside in a good spot, it should last me about 3-4 months. Very Happy
If I am unlucky, maybe longer.

Had you been in Maryland last winter, you could have kept an ice wreath around for a good few months! Smile

UNFORTUNATELY?!?!?! Poor baby!

I should be able to make one here by Hallowe'en without even using my deep freeze and keep it around until next Easter with no problem at all. I could sure use a little of this global warming everyone keeps talking about.

At Christmas time, I have made "ice candle holders" and used them on the front steps for decoration sometimes. Of course they only last an evening but they do look cool.

I have to admit I am curious to see what this winter holds in store for us. We got just buried with snow last winter. I was used to that back in northern New England, but it was a shocker for people in this area.

Hahahaha. OK, perhaps that was the wrong choice of words. I don't live in So Cal by accident and I should have said LUCKILY! Glass half empty...

Since my husband left I have gotten subtle and not so subtle hints to move back to New England and although I love my family, I just cannot do it 12 months of the year. I admit it, I am weak and prone to SADD. Plus I just found out that I can have a year round garden!!!

Ice Wreath

Post  dcgelinas on 10/2/2010, 4:04 pm

What a beautiful wreath. I love the idea. I will surely try making one this winter as I've grown tired of the wreath I have now. Thanks Megan for posting this. Smile
