Ice wreath

Browsing through my binder of magazine clippings early this month, I came across an old Martha Stewart article on making ice wreaths. It seemed like the perfect craft; very kid-friendly and costing nearly nothing.

We made several using different materials in each: cranberries, pine cones, popcorn, bay leaves, and evergreen foliage. I hung them from the dogwood in the center of our lawn because I was afraid that if I hung them near the windows the wind might knock them against the glass.

My new (to me) bundt pan was just perfect, though I also successfully used a round cake pan with an upturned water glass in the middle for the hole.

The daytime temperatures have been obligingly hovering near freezing for a week or so now, so these are lasting a good long time.
