Red Ice Hearts

This little Valentine's Day project added a little color and sparkle to our otherwise snow-covered yard. All it took was some twine knotted into little loops, some red food coloring, some water, and a silicone heart-shaped ice cube tray that I found in the bargain bins at Target.

After pouring the red water into the molds, I added the loops and froze for several hours before hanging them on our little crabapple tree.

Very simple and very pretty! There are some purple lights on the tree as well, but we haven't been able to plug them in because the base of the tree is buried in about 2 feet of snow.


  1. Those pictures are so beautiful! Almost makes we want to live in a climate where it's that cold ;}. Gorgeous job!

    Oh and I am incredibly jealous that you found that heart mold in the bargain bin at Target! I was just looking online for one... sigh

  2. Those are adorable! There's no way they would last for more than a few hours here in Texas.

  3. These hearts are so cute! What a clever idea.
