How to Make Ice Candle Holders (アイスキャンドル作り)

It's very fun to make ice candle holders during the winter time in Hokkaido.

The supplies you will need are as follows:
  • Plastic beach bucket
  • Plastic cup
  • Masking tape
  • Votive candle
1 Fill a bucket roughly 3/4 full with water. 
2 Place a plastic cup in water being sure to center it. 
3 Keep the cup in place by crisscrossing tape across top of the bucket. Let it freeze overnight.
4 The next day, run it under cool water for a few seconds, and flip the bucket over to release the cup.
5 Lastly, rest a candle inside the opening.

Voila!

How romantic they are!!!

Look at the cute face! Hahaha!

The darker it is outside, the more beautiful the candles are!

As the highest temperature in Hokkaido is below zero recently, it is very easy to make such objects.

Why don't you make ice candle holders, and decorate them outside during the winter time??

I'll try again this year...last year was so so successful, sometimes I couldn't get the plastic cup OUT of the ice, and then the whole thing fell apart when I turned it upside down...and my fingers got COLD!
