frozen cranberry wreath

 with decorating i fall into the "less is more" category... i wanted to make a couple of outdoor decorations for the winter using fresh cranberries, so i made this frozen cranberry wreath.
to make one: add some water to the bottom of a bundt pan, cover with fresh cranberries, tuck in the 2 ends of red wool yarn (so you'll be able to hang the wreath), place outside until frozen.  when completely frozen, pop the wreath out & hang outside.
 i also made this cranberry & twig frozen candle holder...
i got the idea from this page of Christmas Ideas magazine.

very simple & uncomplicated things to do to make things more festive ~ enjoy !
