Ice lanterns

Make a glittering, icy candle holder to brighten up dark winter evenings.

These lanterns are super easy to make and look amazing!

  • Add holly leaves, berries or conifer greenery to the water for decoration
  • Freeze your lantern outside on a cold winter night, or pop it in your freezer
  • When the water’s frozen, ask a grown-up to help you free your lantern from the container

Remember, ask your grown-up to light your candle, and never leave a burning candle unattended.
