Frozen Cranberry Wreath

Now that the holidays are over, you probably have that stray bag of cranberries hanging out in your freezer or fridge. One way to use it is to make an icy, frozen wreath!

We found this idea here, and the instructions couldn't be easier. All you need is a bag of cranberries and a bundt pan. Arrange the cranberries in the pan and fill it with water. When we made this the cranberries kept floating to the top, so we found it helpful to fill the pan part way with water, freeze, and then add more water to cover. Then place the pan in the freezer again and leave it there until it is frozen solid. Once it is ready, remove your new wreath from the pan (try dipping the pan in warm water to help release it) and tie a ribbon around it. Then hang it outside!

If your weather is anything like ours here in Chicago, your wreath should stay pretty and frozen for a looooong time! But when it starts to melt, the berries will make a tasty treat for any of the little animals in you neighborhood. Next time, we may try adding birdseed to the wreath as well!

  1. What a different, but neat idea! With the whether the way it is in Charlotte lately...this could actually work!

  2. Wow I love this idea! Its so easy yet so unique.

    I think I will have to try this. For once its actually freezing in Mississippi.
