Field-tested, our heavy-duty biodegradable balloons are worth every penny. They are the only ones we use! They consistently produce beautiful spheres of ice (unlike common balloons that tend to burst or freeze into unattractive shapes). Read about balloon quality here.
The balloons included can be used to make both small and large ice lanterns when used with either a Wintercraft Reusable Freezing Base (small) or (large). Just follow the directions in the Wintercraft kits to make stunning globe ice luminaries!
Two Easy-close Balloon Clips are also included in a 6 pack as well as with each 12 replacement balloons purchased in larger quantity balloon packs. Instructions, Reusable Freezing Bases, Insulating Disks are NOT included (these are in kits). Balloons are made of Natural Rubber Latex which may cause allergic reaction. Adult supervision required. Made in USA.
Note: As of February 2021 color may vary due to supply. Our traditional Green are no longer available this season.
I have been making crystal balls for friends, filling the balloons quite full and putting them outside in subzero weather. The remarkable thing is there are crystal spikes that form inside the ball that look like spiny urchins. Very beautiful and interesting. Do you know how this happens? Along with the ball, I have a card that reads, "Nothing lasts forever", an inspiration to be patient during the Pandemic. Your kits are simple to use and give spectacular results.
i love learning this as a fun new hobby, wintercraft has great customer service, the ice luminary magic book offers many creative easy to follow projects
Our young children have thoroughly enjoyed the ice luminary making process- from filling the balloons, checking them as they freeze, taking them out the next day, and strategically placing them outside- it’s just a lovely way to embrace winter and bring some light to the long dark days
This is a great product. It is worth ordering through for Canadian customers, even with the exchange, shipping and duty, especially if you order in bulk. I ordered some of these balloons at least 4 years ago and just finished off the last few from that original order. They didn't dry out and worked just as well as the new ones I just received. The balloons are really stretchy and they hold their round shape well.
My kids had a blast with our ice lantern kit! It was easy to use, and the results are fantastic. Each day we would go outside to check on it while it froze, almost like a science class in itself! With all us being at home with social distancing, it gave us something fun to do each day. My daughter said she felt like Elsa from "Frozen." It has been so much fun to see it glow! Thank you for such a great product to help make winter enjoyable!
