“Did you know you can get crafty with ice?” This fun, unique title provides clear, step-by-step instructions for making stunning ice decorations to be displayed outdoors in below-freezing weather. The eight crafts, including a bright ice-cube garland and a sophisticated hollow lantern, each have a materials list and note if adult help is needed; tips offer variations and alternate uses for the projects. Striking color photographs throughout show the finished creations. The book’s front matter has a note to adult helpers and a warning symbol key (for working with sharp objects), while opening pages offer interesting ice facts, helpful hints for working with ice, and a photo-illustrated inventory of materials. Back matter contains a glossary.

Series Review
Each volume of this attractive series features seven to nine projects, some of them familiar (twig picture frame, seashell mobile) and some unexpected (tea light holders made of ice). A design that incorporates lots of white space and an earthy palette makes the simple instructions in these books easy to read and follow. Some trial and error may be necessary with projects such as the hollow lantern from Ice Projects, but luckily the materials needed in these crafts are readily available. Many of the books in this series teach a basic technique or two (flower pressing, preserving leaves with glycerin) and then build several crafts based on that technique. Variations and embellishments are suggested, encouraging readers to experiment with their own ideas. The Ice, Pinecone, and Leaf books are the best in this series, while the others, though good looking and simple to use, offer nothing essentially new.
