  • Bits of nature in all the colors of the rainbow

  3. Some items will stay where you want, but no need to spend too much time arranging... once the water hits the the pan all the bits seem to have a mind of their own!
     
  4. Carefully bring your tins outside to a flat surface and allow to fully freeze.

  5. Once they are frozen, tuck string inside the tin around the circumference of the ice (the ice seems to slip out fairly easily to allow you to do this).
     
  6. Then pour some cold water into the tin and wait for it to all freeze again this will secure your string for hanging.
