I saw these in an old issue of Martha Stewart and I wanted to make them, but I did not have a dough-nut pan until now. Most stores don't carry these, so I ended up ordering one out of a catalog. Have you noticed that Martha Stewart has these wonderful decorations, but you can only make them by doing intensive Internet searches or finding an art specialty store 100 miles from your home? Last year I was running around looking for the special paper that can withstand outside elements to make her hanging snowflakes. I found the paper and spent hours cutting out snowflakes, but they wouldn't stay anchored to the porch railing and spent most of the winter sitting in the gutter. Have you had trouble finding items to make a Martha Stewart craft?
To make ice wreaths:
Run around from store to store, and have specialty cooking stores tell you there is no such thing as a dough-nut pan, and then order one from here. If you know a way of doing this without a dough-nut plan, please share it with the rest of us. I cut up some greens that I bought in a bunch from the nursery and randomly placed them in each ring. If you wait until the water starts to freeze, you may be able to keep them from floating to the top, but I have no patience for that.
When they are frozen, put the bottom of the pan in warm water to loosen the ring and loop ribbon through each one. They start melting fast, so I would do one at a time and keep the others in the freezer on a plate.
We are waiting for the ice storm - tomorrow should be interesting.
