As temps keep plunging, it may just be perfect conditions for creating a sparkly walkway to your door by greeting holiday guests with Ice Hurricanes that you can make yourself. (First impressions are everything!) They’re impressive and so easy to make!
Happy Outdoor Decorating!
What you’ll need:
Large plastic containers
Smaller plastic or metal containers
Weights of some sort (rocks, nuts & bolts, etc.)
Sprigs of cedar or pine (sea stars are optional)
Place smaller container inside the larger one, and fill smaller container with weights.
Position greens between the 2 containers. To keep smaller container centered in the larger one, add a criss-cross of duct tape on top.
Add water to just below the top of containers.
Store carefully in freezer overnight.
When ready to use, fill a large bowl with hot water, and one at a time immerse the frozen containers. When loosened, remove the ice from its container.
Remove weights and pour hot water into smaller remaining container. As it loosens, separate.
Place hurricanes directly on the ground outside and add votive candles.
