Cut greens from the yard (I used Boxwood) and cranberries to fill the sides. Cranberries float, so place some in the bottom first and then add green on top. Add a few additional cranberries on the sides. When you fill the container with water the cranberries will rise to the top.

I was pleased how the ice lanterns turned out. I also made smaller ones to line the walk as guest approached the door! For these, I use cottage cheese containers and small disposable food storage containers. These were so much easier to separate as the cottage cheese containers had a smaller bottom and the ice slid right out.

    How did you put the lights inside? Was it a candle and didn’t they melt the ice? Also did you use these inside anywhere?
