Call me a frugal Martha Stewart. I made this cool ice sculpture/mobile with some very simple ingredients. Hey, when the Mother Nature brings you cold, you need to embrace it and make the best of it. Just freeze water (preferably on the porch, not in your freezer) in some unusual shapes with some sort of string or hanger in the water and then the next day when they are frozen solid, just string them up and put them somewhere you can enjoy them. The coloring in my ice was fortuitous. I needed something to anchor down the string, so I took a roll of old Life Savers and weighted down the string. I had not planned on them coloring the water, but it worked out nicely. Tomorrow's batch will be even fancier! Stay tuned and give it a try!
