How to Make Ice Wreaths
I had so many lovely comments on the ice wreath hung on the garden gate yesterday that I decided to let anyone who doesn't already know in on how to make them. It is so easy and although I realize they don't last forever if you live in a sub zero climate in the winter and don't place it directly in the sunshine they can last for weeks or even months.

    Step 1

    Fill your chosen containers with water. If you chose one without a inner circle then just place a bowl in the center weighing it down with a stone if you need to.

    Most of them will float but it works best if you try to place the greens under the berries. Place the water filled containers in a cold place to freeze. I left mine outside the kitchen door overnight and luckily the squirrels or raccoons didn't eat all the berries. Bring them inside and place them for less than a minute in sink filled with warm water to loosen the ice.

    Tie a ribbon or cloth strip on if you want to hang it on the garden gate or door. Remember to not place in direct sunlight. If you don't want to use right away you can store in the freezer but I would first place it in a freezer bag . Wasn't that easy and look how beautiful and festive they look and all for the price of a bag of cranberries. The greens were free.

That looks really cool! Do the birds try to get the berries out?
