We’re in the very last days of winter here, so Travis and I wanted to try one last icy project! To start, he ventured outside to collect a few late winter/early spring nature finds, including old pine boughs, pine cones, and the first of the tulip petals!

Inside, we arranged these in the lids of Tupperware containers, along with a loop of ribbon for each. Travis was very deliberate about placing the items.

If it’s still icy winter where you live, set them outside to freeze. We cheated a bit and used the freezer!

Once completely frozen, run a little warm water around the edges of the lids and the sun catchers should release easily. Now hang them to sparkle in the sun!

As a bonus, the nature items will simply fall back to earth once these melt, and all you have to do is collect the ribbons.
