Doily Snowflake Ornaments

We are still waiting for snow up here in the Northwoods. But since the temperature has dropped to freezing, both day and night, I made my own snowflakes by freezing doilies in baking pans and hanging them in the trees in our backyard. It couldn't be more simple.

I used boiled water, cooled, because it results in clearer ice. The only tricky part is making a hole in the ice once the doilies have frozen. I used a hand drill but any sharp object will do. Just don't go too fast or push too hard. Thread the ornament with string and hang from a branch. Watch them sparkle in the sunlight. Beautiful.

  1. This is lovely! It's not cold enough to do this where I live, so I am enjoying yours!

  2. Hanneke, this is such a beautiful and creative idea. I LOVE it!

    Thanks so much for linking up to "A Little Birdie Told Me...", my friend! Just a reminder that leaving a comment on the post this week gives you an automatic entry into my Wednesday night drawing for the $25 GC to the Hodgson Mill online store.
