Ice Christmas Table Decoration

Ice Christmas Table Decoration

All you need for this is:

  • A bowl,
  • A cup smaller than your bowl
  • Water
  • Garden bits and bobs
  • A freezer

Send the children out to the garden or have a trip to the park to collect leaves, sticks, berries (you get the berries!) pretty little stones, etc.  Fill the bowl with water and put the cup in the middle (kids love to pour in the water)  Then simply add the garden ‘bits and bobs’.  Consider adding cinnamon sticks or some fragrant oil dropped in the water will all add a lovely aroma to your centre piece.

Place in the freezer over night. Next morning bring it out and let it thaw slightly so you can remove the cup. Pop it back into the freezer till ready to use as a table decoration

This looks wonderful with a lit tea light and makes for a very special centre piece that children are rightly very proud of.

Such a good idea for Christmas day perhaps?

    You can also use a cake tin or a bunt tray. We have a horseshoe shaped tin that we use for new year
