Icy Votives - DIY


Dazzle houseguests with a path lined with votives encased in poinsettia adorned cups of ice. Clip a small bloom off at the base. Push the bloom facedown along the sides of a large plastic cup. Pour in distilled water, which makes the clearest ice. Fill one-third full. Place a second, smaller cup in the center with rocks inside it. Freeze until solid. Thaw slightly to unmold the cups.
You could use maple leaves as well. Or flower petals.
