While Valentine’s Day warms our hearts, but baby it’s cold outside!! Once all the Christmas decorations were down, I thought it would be fun to create a little outside Valentine decoration…loving my Frosty Valentine Heart Garland!
Hang it anywhere or lay it in the snow! I am warmed by the sight of my hearts on this chilly day!
Arn’t you mesmerized by the red food coloring in the pitcher of water?! I used the Wilton 6-Cavity Silicone Heart Mold Pan *affiliate link* to make my hearts and Jute twine to make it a garland.
None of my tape really wanted to hold the jute in place on the silicone pan, but I manage to get the masking tape to somewhat stick. To have the hearts dangle about the same distance apart, I measured about three inches between each heart. Loop the extra jute and secured it to the mold. I also made sure that the jute entered and exited each heart in the same location, so they would hang evenly.
Placed my toaster oven tray underneath for support and since the temperature was below freezing, I carried the mold outside to freeze over night…and in the morning…frozen hearts!
As the sun came and went, the icy hearts changed texture, looking extra frosty in the late afternoon shadows. I so enjoyed looking at them, in the snow, from my window!
Linking to these wonderful parties!
