This will look amazing on any table!

large mold or bucket
red, white, and orange craft paint

  1. Start by filling the bucket 1⁄3 full with water.
  2. Add a little red paint and stir well.
  3. Freeze until solid.
  4. Repeat steps 1, 2, and 3 with white and orange paint.
  5. Once frozen solid, turn the bucket upside down on a cake stand. (You can use some warm water to make it come out more easily.)
  6. Decorate with flowers.


Try this as a beautiful and unique center piece for your Easter dinner table.
