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!
