Frosty Valentine Heart Garland
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…I am 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.
I placed my toaster oven tray underneath for support and since the temperature was below freezing, I carried the mold outside to freeze overnight…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!

Such a pretty project, Susan! Yes, we often forget that Valentine’s Day can be pretty “frosty” still in other parts of the country.
I love the contrast of the red hearts against the glimmering white snow–so pretty!
I love it too, Janet!

Hi Susan, I’m Anne from Life on the Funny Farm (http://annesfunnyfarm.blogspot.com), and I’m visiting from the Clever Chick’s Blog Hop.
What a clever idea! NEVER would have thought to make garland from ice. But hey, it’s winter, right? SO why not??
Anyway, thanks for posting this. If you’ve never visited yet, I hope you can pop by my blog sometime to say hi…
THIS is absolute genius!! I love decorating for Valentine’s Day inside AND out and this is just too stinkin’ adorable!
Thanks Lauren – I loved the garland too! It was pretty in the snow!
Such a beautiful blog you have! Just saw you at Christines link party, amazing idea, we have snow here in Denmark, so we have to try this. Thank you for sharing and have a great week!
Thank you for visiting my blog! I think I was looking at your Clock on a Lamp today…very cool and ingenious idea!
I LOVE this! I just saw it at Under the Table and Dreaming’s features from last Sunday’s linky party. Definitely making this!! So cute.
Thank you, Jennifer! I didn’t know I was feature, so I will pop over and thank her! It is certainly cold enough to make the Frosty Heart Garland! Stay warm!
I didn’t have the patience to fuss with the twine so I just made a bunch of these and tossed them in various spots outside – on the picnic table, etc. I made some little vignettes with pine cones and such. They were cute and it is a great easy project to do with kids. Thanks for the inspiration!
Love this idea, and your photos are great!
Super sweet project! TFs
