I saw this idea on Pinterest awhile ago and I just had to try it. It’s a simple idea to add some color and fun to the outdoors during the winter – make some Ice Balls! You could make a bunch of them and set them on your front porch or steps, or line your sidewalk or drive with them! Anywhere you place them, people will wonder how you made them! Just one word of advice, make sure the ice has completely frozen before removing the balloon! I found out the hard way on what happens!
How to make Colored Ice Balls: Grab some balloons (I know that everyone has some on hand somewhere in a junk drawer) and put a few drops of food coloring in the balloon first, then pull the lip of the balloon over your faucet and fill with cold water. Carefully pull the balloon off the faucet and tie. Shake the balloon a little to mix the food coloring. Then, either set the balloon outside in the cold, or place in your freezer. Once the water has frozen, remove the balloon and find a neat place for it outside!
Like I mentioned above, make sure that the water has completely frozen before removing the balloon, or you will watch your food colored water run right out of your balloon, like I did. Try this out today, and let me know how your frozen balls turned out! LOL
