These ornaments are fairly easy to make. It also gives a hint of earthy and natural decor style to an outdoor wedding or family photoshoot. Supplies: Water Bird seed Whole cranberries Twine Scissors Ice cube tray Bowl with flat bottom Drinking glass Instructions: To make an ice ring place the drinking glass inside the bowl. Fill the bowl with an inch or so of water. Add bird seed and cranberries and place in freezer over night. For the cubes (or any other fun shaped ice cube tray you might have) begin by cutting a piece of twine and tying it into a loop. Fill the ice cube tray 1/3 of the way with cranberries and add the twine loop, knot down. You don’t want the twine poking out the bottom of the finished ornament (not that the birds will mind) so try to make sure it isn’t touching the bottom of the tray. Fill the remaining space with birdseed. Now add water until there is a thin layer covering all the ingredients. Put the ice cube tray in the freezer overnight. To remove the ice ornaments let the trays/molds sit in warm water for a few minutes, and they will pop out much easier.
Do you think the seeds and berries can be eaten by birds after? Great way to give them a little treat :) @alise it won't melt fast if you live in my neck of the woods!
This is wonderful indeed! I was almost going to just buy this.. I should try this when I get from Seoul next week!
It's so pretty but too bad it'll melt fast.
