I have to admit, I am a "less is more" type when it comes to outdoor decorations and lights. I have one strand of white lights on the little peach tree in front of the house and some red accents by the front door - some red lanterns for candles and a basket of cones, evergreens and heather and a romantic little angel.
I have always wanted to make ice-ornaments. I filled baking tins and forms with water and some holly leaves and berries and let them freeze overnight. They certainly were cold to handle but with my optimistic little helper we managed to hang them up.
Then...the temperatures rose....and the ornaments started to drip a bit, but are all still hanging. Only one circle did melt halfway and has formed a perfect moon. Delightful!
