Handmade gift of the week: DIY Frozen Fruit and Flower Ice Bucket

A bottle of wine is a popular gift that many people will appreciate. However, the trick to gifting a memorable bottle of wine (apart from buying a wine that tastes good) lies in the way it's presented. This handmade ice bucket would be a wonderful host/hostess gift for a party during the warmer months...

Why we love it:
  • It's easy and inexpensive to make - you just need to allow a little time between each step for the ice to freeze. Here are the instructions on how to make it. 
  • You can choose any combination of flowers, herbs, fruit, or anything else you think will freeze. You could use bright, contrasting colours, or tonal pastel colours, depending on the occasion. 
  • This makes an impressive (and practical) table centre-piece. Imagine this on your Christmas table with gorgeous Christmas colours. If you've got time, you could even make two or three to hold different bottles of wine. 
  • You can make any sized bucket - even one to hold multiple bottles. The only limitations are the buckets you have available, and the size of your freezer!

What flowers and fruit would you use in your bucket?
