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!

Gorgeous, Lucy. Really lovely. Cute idea!
That is one of the cutest ideas ever.
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!

A twist on those “beach” writings…fun!!
So creative and pretty! I love the artistic flair in all your posts!
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
I’m so glad I happened upon this post! What a great idea…and afterward you aren’t left with something to store! Thanks for sharing!
truly delightful 🙂
So cute! My little ones would love this. Now we just need snow to go with it! I’d love for you to come link up at Fun For Kids Friday.

Well that is just incredibly adorable. No snow in Florida but am thinking of other ways to do this.
I love doing crafty things with stuff that’s already around the house. Thanks for joining ‘Fun for Kids Friday’!

Thanks for the great idea!
So cute! So did you just mix snow with your colour, or did you use water? We have TONS of snow – my preschoolers would love this!
The heartcicles are cute and a fun idea. I’ve included your post on my weekly favorites here: http://play2grow.blogspot.com/2011/02/weekly-favorites-for-february-6-2011.html
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!!!!!!!!!
