Introduction: Ice Scupltures

These Ice Scupltures look really cool, and are super easy to make! Great for kids to make for themselves, and it's super cool to hang them around your freezer for some colorful, icy decoration! These hardly take any special materials, and chances are, you have most of them lying around the house!

Step 1: Gather Stuff

To make your own custom Ice Sculptures, you'll need:

  • (1) Paper Cup
  • (1) Pair Salad Tongs
  • (1) Bottle Food Coloring
  • (1) Hot Faucet
  • (1) Freezer

Step 2: Freeze

Pour about 2/3 cup of cold water into a cup. Drip 4 drops of food coloring into the water and stick it in the freezer; then wait about 8 hours for a complete freeze.

Step 3: Prepare for Shaping

Take the cup out of the freezer and run extremely hot water on the outside of the cup for about 10 seconds. Next, pull out the ice chunk.

Step 4: Shape

With extremely hot water running, pick up the ice chunk with the salad tongs and shape it under the faucet. It takes a bit of practice to get it right, but once you get the hang of it, it's easy and looks magical to see the ice disappearing underneath the water's flow!

Step 5: Complete

You're done! You may want to put your creation back in the freezer for about an hour, just to let it solidify further. Once it's completely frozen up again, you can tie string around it and hang it in your freezer! I hope you enjoyed this super-easy tutorial on how to make super-stylish Ice Sculptures.
