While volunteering in the church nursery, I had the opportunity to peruse a craft book that was calling my name from the bookshelf--A Year of Crafts for Kids *ahem* (or Kids at Heart [my subtitle] ). Since I no longer have small children at home, I offer this as a public service to those who do (are you buying that?)
Anyhoo, you will need aluminum pie tins; the heart-shaped tin turned out to be too flimsy and was later abandonned--stick to the pie plate type.
I decided to use flowers I had dried from the summer before. The craft book suggested pine cones and other naturey bits. Whatever you don't mind returning to the great outdoors once the ice melts is a candidate.

You'll need to place something in the pans to use for hanging. I started out using cord, but changed my mind and decided to go with pretty ribbon instead. Fill the pans with water and let them freeze overnight.
Cheryl @ Time to Craft, this picture is dedicated to you because you mentioned wellies in your comment on my "practical boots" hunt post, reminding me that I actually own a pair that were hidden in the garage. Boot dilemma solved.

While photographing these, I noticed a neighbor staring out the window at me and shaking his head. Why, I wonder? The artistic-bent is so misunderstood.
