You made these for the outside? I can't believe how gorgeous they are to use. I bet they would be wonderful lighting up the drive when people pull up for your party. It is a great way to keep guests from falling or getting lost when they arrive for a holiday party too.

I just LOVE ice candle holders. I live in a cold part of Canada, so this is a nice way to brighten the long winter nights during the holidays. I agree with the commenters below that it is fun to freeze things into the ice. A friend of mine actually added a bit of food dye to hers to make it glow a blue-green colour. It was really very lovely! Make sure that you place them somewhere that the melting ice will not refreeze into a slipper death-trap though! You don't want your main walkway super icy! If you are in a cooler climate, I highly recommend giving this a try.

This may be the easiest project ever! I love notsuzy3's idea below to add decorative items in the ice as it freezes. Colored pony beads, small tinsel garland, etc. If the water over-freezes and you don't have room for your candle, you can hollow out the space a little with a long wand-type lighter. Click on a flame and place it in the ice candle holder. Have the ice on its side and roll it a bit so it melts evenly.

I did this with 1/2 of a 2 liter bottle. However, I put a paper cup weighed down with pebbles and stones in the middle for a tea light to fit into the cavity left when one removes the cup. Also, I used cranberries. I put about 2" water, added cranberries and froze in my freezer. Then I added more water and cranberries, refroze; then top off with water. Unfortunately in the St. Louis area, they don't stay frozen forever. On warm days I brought them in and re-froze. Too much hassle!) Maybe I will move to Alaska some day, and I can do it again!
