Dreaming of a winter wonderland wedding?  You’re not alone!  You might be surprised to know that one in four couples ties the knot during the winter.  If you are joining the winter wedding bandwagon, here’s a great DIY ice lantern project from Design*Sponge.   These lanterns are super easy to make and you won’t need a ton of supplies.  I plan to make a few for my own home this winter!

Here’s what you’ll need:

?   2 buckets (one smaller than the other)
?   Some greens (holly, pine, mistletoe, etc.)
?   Water
?   Tape

Here’s what you’ll do:

Fill the biggest bucket half full with water.  Place the smaller bucket inside it and place some rocks or something heavy to keep it in place.  Add more water (the water level should be to the top).  Add your branches to the sides of the bucket.  Use some tape to keep the small bucket in the middle of the big one.  Now, set the whole thing outside to freeze.  Once frozen, remove the small bucket and then the large one.  Place a votive candle inside and you’re done.

Say hello to your lovely ice lantern!
