Now that temps are more December like, ice lanterns can be a fun addition to your outdoor decorating or use indoors for special events. These luminaries made from HexLanternice are easy to make in your freezer or outside, weather permitting of course. Sargent’s carries both Arctic Ice Lanterns and Globe Ice Lanterns kits and refills. Arctic Ice lanterns are made using a reusable plastic mold so you can make as many as lanterns as you wish with just one mold. These lanterns can also be enhanced by adding fresh greens, cranberries, pine cones and even small LED string lights before they freeze. Use outdoors with a candle and they will glow beautifully as long as the weather stays cool. Use indoors to keep a bottle of wine or other beverage cool on your buffet or bar during a party.

Globe Lantern

Globe Lantern

Globe ice lanterns are made using a durable water balloon. Just fill with water, clamp off and freeze until ready. These kits come with several balloons and refill kits are available too. The perfect sphere of these lanterns is very stunning and creates a globe of light.

Whichever style you choose, ice lanterns are easy to make and make a beautiful addition to your walkway or porch on a winter night. Stop in at Sargent’s today to learn more or pick up your lantern kit.
