Which ice Christmas decorations can you make yourself?
The most popular ideas for frozen Christmas decorations outside are bird feeders, wreaths and candle holders or candle lanterns. The instructions for making are similar and simple: all you need is a mold and water. You can insert anything you like into the mold – holly berries, cranberries, pine branches, pine cones, candy canes, leaves and herbs to create your own unique piece. If you want to attract birds, add fruit and nuts to your frozen decorations. You can decorate your outdoor space with frozen wreaths and Christmas tree ornaments for Christmas and New Year’s Eve. These are usually hung on the trees and the garden fence or used to decorate the porch. If you live in a big city and don’t have a garden or terrace, then you can decorate your balcony with it. The frozen Christmas decorations can be hung on the railing or placed on the front steps.

Ice hurricanes are great decorations for the holidays, both indoors and outdoors. These spread a soft light and create a good mood! Of course, frozen lanterns last much longer outside than inside, which is why they are real eye-catchers in the wintry garden. Here are simple instructions on how to make such frozen Christmas decorations outside yourself!
You need the following
- 3 buckets (15 cm high, 15 cm in diameter);
- 3 large empty yoghurt cups (500 g);
- 5L water – use either distilled or just tap water!;
- stones to weigh down;
- Branches with red berries, such as rose hips, or with flowers are pretty for freezing!
Fire in the ice – frozen lanterns as Christmas decorations outside!
This is how it’s done:
- Fill the buckets with about 8 cm of water and let them freeze.
- Place the yoghurt cups in the middle of the buckets on the ice and weigh them down with stones.
- Then fill the remaining water around the cups into the buckets, put the branches in and let everything freeze solid.
- Remove the yogurt cups – to make this step easier, you can fill the cups with warm water. Then you can just take it out!
- Last but not least, you can put the tea lights in the frozen lanterns and put this decoration outside!
A highlight in the garden!
