Materials:

  • nature clippings from your yard (berries, sticks, leaves, etc.)

  • scissors or clippers

  • containers

  • string

  • water

What to do:

  • Gather your nature art from your yard. It’s the perfect time to start noticing the little details in your yard you may never have noticed before. Find sticks, leaves, berries, anything that calls to you.

  • Cut string so your frozen creations can hang once done. Lay both string ends in the water. Make sure 2-3 inches are in the water.

  • Pick a container and fill with water.

  • Arrange your nature art in the container.

  • Leave outside overnight. (Note it must be below 32 degrees to achieve freezing.)

  • Pop your ice out of the container and hang! If you are having trouble getting your ice creation out, run under water until it melts slightly.
