Floral Ice Bucket

Well guys we have officially made it to July!
Smack dab in the middle of this heat wave.
I swear, this heat and humidity is gonna get the best of me;
So I decided to do a post that is appealing to the eye AND something that would cool me off😎
 While this project may cost you a bit of time, it is Dollar Tree friendly!
I really wanted to use real flowers but honestly no one could tell the difference and it was much cheaper! 

2 PLASTIC buckets
 (one large and one small that can fit in the large)
Fake Flowers 🌺 
Scissors ✂️ 
Water πŸ’¦

⚠️make sure to measure the height of your freezer so you'll know the buckets will fit, and only use plastic⚠️


Step 1: Fill the large bucket with about 3 inches of water and freeze.

Step 2: Place the smaller bucket (mine was a sand bucket and worked perfectly)in the large bucket. Next, I TOTALLY forgot to buy rocks to weigh down the small bucket, 2 small ramekins worked though from my kitchen. The water will float if you don't weigh it down.

Step 3: Pour water in the space between the two buckets, about 3 or 4 inches and start to tuck flowers down in the water. Freeze. Repeat once more and freeze overnight

Step 4: To remove your ice creation, remove rocks (or whatever you used 😁) run warm water down the small bucket and it should pop out. Then, run warm water around the bottom of the large bucket and it will pop out!

✨When serving, make sure to place it on a tray or washcloth to absorb the water, I used the bottom of my Beverage dispenser (you know, where you keep ice to keep the water cool) and put ice in it and it worked like a charm!!!!✨

  3. Non-electrical technologies such as hydraulic and pneumatic were popular in the past, but have been eclipsed by the practical nature of strain gauge cells. load cell
