How to make hanging ice scupltures

When on a walk or out and about why not pick up some interesting natural finds to create your own hanging ice sculpture. A feather, a smooth pebble, twigs, colourful flowers, they can all be frozen in water and hung up to create beautiful art work to hang from a tree or post. Then watch as it changes shape and colour as it melts away slowly.
