I made these luminaries with empty wine bottles and half-gallon milk cartons. After the initial freeze I removed the wine bottles and added more water to raise the bottom level to conveniently hold a votive candle. It is my annual homage to Martha; I have been a fan since the early days.
A collection of ice votives lining a stone wall will warmly welcome guests to a winter gathering. The flickering candlelight silhouettes the greenery and berries encased in the ice. (Martha Stewart Christmas Vol. 5 2001)
Winter Ice Lantern. I love the look of luminaries, but I am not keen on flames in paper bags, punching holes in cans is a lot of prep work, jars could shatter. This idea gave me a seed! I can play off this for the holidays

Beautiful way to welcome guests to your party--illuminate your entry with luminaries made from frozen ice. Use half gallon milk cartons and empty wine bottles. After initial freeze, remove wine bottle and add more water to raise bottom level to accommodate a votive candle.
