I had to share for those in freezing areas!

I made colored water balloons and set them outside overnight. Well, this one didn't freeze all the way and was hollow inside, so I took the top off a little solar light and put inside.

It is sooooo pretty! This picture really doesn't do it justice!

Wow! Nice!! I'm is Ca. & I have never seen it this cold. A couple of people had gloves on in church this morning. I'm taking along a dark colored small throw to use on my legs if we have any more of this weather. So I guess the ice doesn't bother the light. You could make a red & white or red & green lighted path to your house. TFS Jan

Neat. I posted a link how to do them on my garden board but I forgot about them. Supposed to get cold here again this weekend might have to try it!! Thanks for the reminder. Yours is sure pretty.
Please tell us how you did it.

I put a few drops of food coloring in a balloon, filled it with water, then set it in a bowl outside. I thought it was frozen through, and brought it in to take the balloon off, and found the inside was hollow. Perfect place to put a light. It lasted a few days until the weather warmed up
