Christmas Decor ~ Outdoor
Sparkling Ice Wreath Combine elements from nature for a wreath designed for the great outdoors. Gather berries, greenery, and pinecones, and place in a fancy Bundt or round baking pan (there are more tips for using a plain round pan on the next slide). Add water, place the pan outside or in the freezer, and let the cold air do the rest. Simply tie twine or ribbon around the wreath to hang from a nearby branch. See the next slide for more directions.

Outdoor Holiday Luminarias ... Turn paper bags into dramatic luminarias by cutting out your own designs with a crafts knife, hole punchers, and scissors. Then wait for dusk, fill the bottom with sand, and drop in a tea light to bring your walkways to life. (Use battery-powered votives if you're not going to be at home while these are on display.)

How to make your own Outdoor Stars
Poinsettia Luminarias Light up a wintry night with glowing poinsettias encased in ice. Start with a small bloom clipped at the base. Seal the stem with a flame, and push the bloom facedown into a large plastic cup. Pour distilled water -- it makes the clearest ice -- into the container and fill it one-third full. A second, smaller container in the center weighted down with rocks, creates a hollow center in the mold. Freeze until solid. Thaw the ice slightly to unmold both containers and place a votive candle inside.
