I’ve seen these wintery sun catchers around the internet and in magazines, and last week we had a go.
We picked little bits of dried flowers and plants and tiny sticks on one of our walks. A few red berries would have been nice, too!
Then we placed them in some plastic bowls, along with a length of string to later hang them by.
Filled up with a little water they were off to the freezer, and soon we decorated the tiny japanese maple tree in our front garden with our icy winter sun catchers.
As it happens, we picked the last frosty day. The next morning, all that was left were a few pieces of string dangling from the branches.
Luckily these sweet decorations are easy and cheap to replace!
Maybe next time we’ll try another variation. Like ice cubes with food colouring, those look nice! I’ve also seen somebody use cookie cutters to make star shaped sun catchers. And maybe a little glitter wouldn’t be such a bad idea either… Oh the possibilities!
