Holiday Ice Candle

  Posted on   by   No comments

Here is an easy, inexpensive decorative candle holder for your Holiday table.  (I can’t use the word tablescape!)  I’ve also done this other times of the year using rosemary and kumquats or sliced lemons, etc. The photos are not actually step by step, but it gives you an idea of what I did.

Step 1

Buy a cardboard paint bucket from your local hardware store.

Step 2

Find a plastic cup to put in the middle of the bucket.

Step 3

Put some cranberries and Christmas tree branches or holly or whatever you want around the cup.

Step 4

Put something heavy in the cup to keep it from floating.  I usually use rocks or this year I used 2 lb hand weights.

Step 5

Fill will water – around the cup.

Step 6

Freeze it in the freezer.

Step 7

Take it out of the freezer. Remove the weights from the inside of the cup.  Fill the cup with some warm water and twist it until it comes loose.  Remove the cup.

Step 8

Tear off the cardboard paint bucket.

Step 9

Put it in a glass dish and place a candle in the middle.  You may have to remove some of the melted water throughout the evening.
