These pretty icy spheres can be used as decoration, and as holders for candles.

They are simple to make – fill some balloons with water, tie them off, and place them outside to freeze. You can also make them in your freezer if it’s not cold enough outside.

If you want to get fancy, squirt in a bit of water based paint or some food colouring. To make a candle holder, let the balloons freeze about half way through and then open them up and drain out the unfrozen water.
