They’re colorful, festive and can be fully customized. Imagine kiwis, apples and flowers! They look beautiful sitting on a table and are perfect for summer entertaining. We love how they came out! See the how-to below. Cheers to DIY ice buckets!!

Supplies:
2 different sized, inexpensive plastic buckets (a large one and one to fit inside that is also large enough for a champagne bottle), flowers, fruit, rocks.

Directions:
1. Fill the large bucket with 2-3 inches water and freeze.
2. Place the smaller bucket inside and fill it with rocks so it’s weighted. Otherwise it will float when then the water is poured in.
3. Fill the circle with water and tuck the flowers and fruit in tight, so they don’t float to the top when frozen. You can also do this in two steps, filling half then freezing and then doing the second half. This will insure the flowers will be dispersed throughout the bucket when frozen.
4. Freeze the bucket overnight.
5. To remove the ice bucket, remove the rocks from the center, then fill that container with warm water and let it sit. Pour it out and then run water around the outside of the bucket. It will eventually loosen and slide out.

*We highly recommend using plastic and galvanized buckets as glass can break.
Also, when serving, place it on a tray or container with a little ledge to catch the water. You can also fold a washcloth and set it underneath to absorb some of the water.

Enjoy and stay charming!

    So what does it look like as things start to melt?
    Are there wilted flowers and fruit spilling all over the table? Am I missing something?

      Exactly! How long can you actually let this sit out before it starts melting and making a mess, water rings everywhere, puddles..?! Pretty, but doesn’t seem very practical.

    This is absolutely beautiful! There are so many possibilities with flowers, fruits, and vegetables you could combine for all sorts of fun ice buckets! 🙂 I think that it would be a good idea once it starts to melt to just put it back into the bucket you molded it in and just have pretty decorations surrounding your drinks in the water! Thanks for sharing! 🙂
