Valentine's Day Ice Lanterns

In this icy craft, we'll explore an easy and fun way to create your own ice luminaries. These lovely little candle holders are perfect for brightening your chilly porches on cold winter nights!

Gather Your Supplies:

These are the tools we used to create our ice lanterns:

  • Flowers
  • Water
  • Large + slightly smaller tubs
  • Freezer
  • Tealight candle

Create your Ice Lantern:

Step 1: Choose and Cut Your Flowers 

To begin, choose your favorite flowers, we recommend red ones for a Valentine's Day twist. Cut your flowers so that they are not too thick.

Step 2: Add Your Flowers + Water

In the larger tub add a few petals to the bottom and then place your smaller top on top. Secure the tubs together with twine. Once secure finish placing your flowers in. Add water until the tup is filled.

Step 3: Let Freeze and Enjoy!

Place the tub in the freezer until your luminary is completely frozen. Once frozen, place outside with a tealight and enjoy your ice lantern! Note: the colder it is, the longer your lantern will last. The warmer, the faster it will melt.
