Ice Art Series: Easiest Valentine's Hearts Ever

Simple, pretty and unique additions to the season! These can be hung as a decoration or used to chill a Valentine's Day punch. We've been experimenting with these since Feb 1 (click here)

If you were here last year, maybe you made those Valentine Ice Hangings? (click here)

Heart Shaped Cake Pan
Colored Water*

How-to: Simply fill your cake pan with the colored water.* Cut desired length of cord, fold cord in 1/2 and insert both of the ends into the heart. Give the cord a little time to absorb water in order to sink into the liquid. You will need the cord to be inside the water in order to hold the frozen heart. Freeze until completely solid. Warm the metal of the pan with your hands and slide the ice heart out. If this doesn't work, use luke warm water to help detach the ice from the pan. Find a place to hang these and enjoy! Icy hearts that will fill your windows with warmth!

(*Use traditional food coloring colors or use cranberry juice. We colored this with cranberry juice. Leave the rope out and use it in a punch bowl for Valentine's Day. We've been experimenting with food coloring vs fruit juice and have see that when we use fruit juice the color is less transparent and more of an opaque color. Both are beautiful!)

  1. I love the ice valentine!!!!!! Also love the Semla. The Semla reminds me of when I visited Sweden in February. Semla is delicious.

    1. Thank you! Thank you too for sharing your experience. Did they remind you of anything you've had before. They're not really a cream puff, are they?

  2. Just popping over from The Outdoor Play Party. These hearts are so simple and beautiful! Your photography is gorgeous too!. I love a blog whose photos inspire me just as much as the activities do!

    1. Thank you for such a thoughtful comment. I really appreciate it. Wishing you an inspired weekend!

  3. This is so pretty! I am going to pin these.

    Thank you so much for sharing at the Outdoor Play Party!

  4. Loving the ice hearts, so simple, but so effective. Thanks for commenting at Making Boys Men as well

  5. They're certainly pretty, but I'm puzzled by the whole concept... you're hanging frozen cranberry juice in a window? To melt all over the carpet? I guess I don't understand why anyone would want to do that. On the other hand, it would be pretty awesome to hang these outside on frigid winter days.


Thank you!
