Assemble a Disc Ornament

Create a delicate disc ornament by filling a plastic plate with water and the plants of your choice. We used the last sage blossoms of the season with a few wild berries and rosemary leaves. Tie a knot in a piece of twine and place it halfway in the water before placing the plate flat in the freezer.

Hang your Ornament

Once your ornament is frozen solid, usually after 4-6 hours, pop it out of the mold and hang! This ornament is so thin that light filters through beautifully, creating a glowing circle of ice and blossoms.
