Frozen Garden Candles From Garden Therapy


  • A pair of containers, one large, and one small, sized to fit the height of your candleholder as well as the width and height of your candle. We used a 2-quart (2-litre) plastic milk carton, a large yogourt container and a plastic condiment bottle.
  • Gorgeous garden greenery, rosehips, berries and seed heads


1 Fill the larger container with about 1 in. (2.5 cm) of water. Place the container in the deep freeze on a flat surface and allow the base to freeze solid.
2 Remove from the freezer and place the smaller container (a candleholder is ideal) inside the larger one, resting it on the base of ice.
3 Tuck greenery, rosehips and small winter branches into the crevice between the containers and then fill this space with water right to the top. Place a heavy object inside the smaller container to prevent it from floating up.
4 Then carefully return the pair of containers to the freezer for at least 24 hours until the water freezes solid. To release the ice candleholder, remove the set from the freezer and allow to thaw just slightly, at room temperature. Or run the containers under warm water until the ice releases.
5 Set outside, insert candle, light and enjoy.
