Flower Ice Sculputre

A few flowers (any type)


1. Insert Flowers

Rip off the petals from a few flowers, and push inside an empty balloon.

2. Fill Balloon

Fill the balloon with water to the desired size and tie a knot at the top.

3. Place in Freezer

Place the balloon in the freezer on a flat surface (which will become the level base), and up against something so it holds upright.  The balloon sits well on its own so just simple support of a plastic bowl can be used. Ensure the knot of the balloon is at the top so the sculpture has a lovely egg shape.

4. Freeze

Freeze overnight (for at least 6-10 hours). When ready to use the sculpture, take from the freezer and peel back the balloon.  Place on a plate (with sides so it can catch the drips). Beautiful!  My husband loved this one the best.

    Thank you so much for this idea. I’m making a balloon room for my daughter’s 13th birthday next week but these will look perfect on the table. Genius!
