I found this on tasteofhome.com I just thought it was an awesome idea. So I decided to share.

Fire-and-Ice Holiday Centerpiece

Materials Needed:

  • Artificial or natural pine greens and pinecones
  • Small gold plastic balls
  • Gold string beads
  • Freezer-safe container with smooth, straight sides
  • Distilled water
  • Tea light candles in clear containers
  • Edged tray to hold centerpiece
  • Fresh greens


Directions:

Place greens, pinecones, balls and beads in the freezer-safe container.

Place greens, pinecones, gold balls and beads in a freezer-safe container, using enough so they stay in place when water is added and arranging them so they touch the sides of the container.

Add distilled water. Freeze until solid.

Carefully add distilled water to within 1 in. of the top of the container. Float tea lights on top of the water. Place on a flat surface in the freezer; freeze for several days or until solid.

About 15 minutes before unmolding, remove the container from the freezer. Let stand at room temperature until ice releases from the sides of container.

Trim or fold a paper towel so it is a bit smaller than the centerpiece and place on tray. Place the centerpiece on top of paper towel to keep it from sliding. Add fresh greens around the base of the centerpiece. Remove water from the tray as needed.

Seems like it could melt really quickly.
