DIY PROJECT || #7 || FLORAL ICE CUBES

Tuesday, January 15


INGREDIENTS 
Small petaled flowers
Ice cube or cupcake/muffin tray
Water
Freezer





STEP ONE: Gently pull petals from their buds.
STEP TWO: Place petals into ice cube/muffin tray cups. I chose to go with a spring look, so I combined pink, purple, and white with most of them. Some I left with two colors (white and yellow). Experiment with the look you want to have! 


STEP THREE: Slowly pour cold water into the cups until desired height. I did mine about 3/4 of the way.
STEP FOUR: Slide the tray into the freezer. Leave in for at least 1.5 - 2 hours. When frozen, pull the tray out, wait for 5 minutes for cubes to begin melting then, using a knife around the edges, gently loosen and wiggle the cubes until they can slide out. Pop into a cup/pitcher of water, lemonade, or iced tea and - voila! - you've got a classy a** drink. If desired, you can put the cubes into tea leaf bags so that, when they melt, the flowers will stay contained and not get swallowed up!

    Pretty! If you boil the water the ice cubes should come out clear :)

  8. Don't waste your money on these pans. they work for a few weeks, but after that you'll be using more and more oil to keep food from sticking. Eventually even the oil won't help. One of the worst kitchen utensils I ever bought.
