Ice Lanterns: Nature's Wonder



   Globe Ice lanterns — enchanting, glacial candle-holders — are enjoyed indoors and outdoors all year ‘round. You and your friends will marvel at these wondrous spherical shells of ice, the center of which glows with radiant flame. Mixing fire and ice is as timeless as the world's first lamp-lighters. As a present day fun and beautiful creative endeavor, ice luminaries appeal to young and old alike.





We are so pleased to be able to offer the kits and replacement supplies to make Globe Ice Lanterns through Wintercraft®. The creation of the kits has been a labor of love through years of trial and error. More about Wintercraft's history.


We ask that you remember that the making of ice lanterns is as much an art as a science, so there is always going to be a scenario where things work out differently than you planned. So, the trick is to plan on being surprised and all will be well. Enjoy the Glow!
