This week we share our favorite decorating tips. One that I'll most likely not get to try is a frozen ice ring to hang on an outdoor gate or any door of your home, but they are so pretty. A round tubular mold, such as a bundt pan or Jell-O mold may be used. You may want to fill it about a third full, then layer some small fruits or pine needles, do another layer and freeze and then a final layer. These can be made ahead of time, and when below freezing days stretch out for a week, pull out your ice wreath for a quick decorative wreath.
