When life gives you lemons, make lemonade.  And when Mother Nature gives you extreme cold weather…make ‘heartcicles’!!

My ideas often come to me in the middle of the night when stores are closed, and even if they were open, I can’t justify purchasing an item for the sake of one blog post.  So, I made my own molds using foil paper….

Shape foil into desired shape, making sure its one continuous piece (it will otherwise leak).  I made various sizes…
…and mixed different shades of pinks and reds.  Place outside and let winter do the rest.
Have a lovely day!

    I love that! No pun intended… The red is so pretty against the snow…think of all the other fun shapes and colors you could create to make a pretty display!

    Lucy- What a darling idea. We will have lots of snow for Valentines Day and I am thinking of giving a party. Wouldn’t that be a great way to come up to the entry? What did you use as colorant? Please don’t tell me it was deer blood or jello- ;>D Hugs-Diana

    AH! I love those. I teach kindergarten and they would have a fit over this idea. I’ll be watching the weather to see when our next snow is! Thanks for sharing. :)

    I saved this idea from last year but don’t see what you used for your recipe—-just kool-aid or water and food coloring> We have a heart pan just waiting to make us some LOVECICLES!!!!!!!!!
