DIY Crafts: Flower Ice Cubes + Spheres

Materials

1 gallon distilled water
Assorted flowers
Silicone ice trays and/or spherical ice molds

Instructions

Assemble the flowers you would like to use and trim off the stem just below the blossoms. For ice that is clear instead of cloudy, use distilled water. Make sure the blossoms will fit inside your ice cube molds.  Pour a little distilled water into each mold, then add a blossom. Fill the molds with additional distilled water until the flowers are covered. Freeze the cubes overnight. In the morning, carefully remove the ice cubes from their molds. If using a spherical ice mold, run the mold under hot water for three seconds before attempting to open. Add as an elegant accent to your wine chiller for weddings, bridal showers, and garden parties!
