A few flowers (any type)
1. Insert Flowers
Rip off the petals from a few flowers, and push inside an empty balloon.
2. Fill Balloon
Fill the balloon with water to the desired size and tie a knot at the top.
3. Place in Freezer
Place the balloon in the freezer on a flat surface (which will become the level base), and up against something so it holds upright. The balloon sits well on its own so just simple support of a plastic bowl can be used. Ensure the knot of the balloon is at the top so the sculpture has a lovely egg shape.
Freeze overnight (for at least 6-10 hours). When ready to use the sculpture, take from the freezer and peel back the balloon. Place on a plate (with sides so it can catch the drips). Beautiful! My husband loved this one the best.
