Decorate your walkway with frozen water balloons

Photo in Cabin Life/Dec.2014

Here's a fun idea I shared on my blog last Winter.  I love it so much, it deserved another mention.    Simply fill water balloons with water, add a few drops of food coloring, tie off the ends, and freeze them overnight in the snow.  Once frozen, use a pair of scissors to cut the balloons off.  

Place them around the entryway for a great conversation piece.  The color will stand out in the white snow beautifully.  Kids will love it!

1) To avoid a mess indoors, carry filled balloons outside before adding food coloring.
2) Watch for leaks.  Food color coming out of a tiny hole in the balloons can stain wall, clothes and tiles.
3)  Wear gloves to protect your hands from the food coloring.
4)  If you live in a climate with no snow or freezing temps, use the freezer instead.

Great fun & happy weekend everyone!
