We saw a really neat ice ornament in a magazine and decided, well, we've got cold, water and color.
Let's do it!
I sprayed the bottom and rim and the glass with some cooking spray for an easier release. I don't think this is necessary, but in my mind it helped...
We used a huge round pan that we have and never use because it is so dang huge, we filled it up about 1/4 high.
We put an upside down glass in so we would have a hole to tie a string through to hang it. Don't put your glass too close to the rim or you won't have a sturdy place to put a rope through. Then we set it outside to freeze. Next, we got an ice cube tray, filled it half way with water and then we mixed paints in all the trays to make pretty colors.
Also, if you have a boy who painted a black eye on himself, your paints are guaranteed to be more vibrant.
The next day, we popped out the frozen cubes and arranged them how we wanted them in our ornament.
A thing of beauty!
It's more so glimmering in the light, but I missed that photo op, as the day grew gray quickly....
So go make your own if you really want to see it in all it's glory!
