Cranberry Ice WreathHow to Make a Cranberry Ice Wreath

A cranberry-kumquat ice wreath is a lovely outdoor Christmas decoration for your home. The only requirement for this project is that the temperature outside be below freezing. This ice wreath is beautiful and unusual and will last as long as the temperature stays low. Remember to make room in the freezer for your ring pan before you begin.
To complete this ice wreath, you need the following supplies:
  • 10 to 12 cup Bundt pan or other ring pan
  • 1 cup cranberries
  • 10 kumquats, sliced
  • 24-inches of 2-inch-wide red ribbon
Then, follow these steps:
  1. Fill the ring-shaped pan a third of the way with cold water. Sprinkle half of the cranberries  over the water. Freeze until firm.
    Use distilled water to make the frozen ring as clear as possible, or, boil and cool your tap water.
  2. Add cold water to the mold so that it is about three-quarters full. Sprinkle in the remaining fruit. Freeze again.
  3. Remove the wreath from the mold. Thread the ribbon through the center and tie a knot and bow near the ribbon’s end, resulting in a large loop underneath the bow.
  4. Immediately hang outside.
