DIY Floral Ice Bucket

  Back to DIY Projects

This Mother’s Day, celebrate the mothers in your life with our beautiful DIY Floral Ice Bucket – and a chilled bottle of Ecco Domani wine, of course!

  • 2 plastic buckets: a large one and a smaller one that fits inside it that can hold an Ecco Domani wine bottle
  • Flowers
  • Fruit
  • Rocks (for weighting)


Fill the large bucket with 2-3 inches water and freeze.
Place the smaller bucket inside and fill it with rocks to weight it (otherwise it will float when then the water is poured in).
Fill the space between the two buckets with water and tuck the flowers and fruit in tight, so they don’t float to the top when frozen. You can also do this in two steps, filling half, then freezing, and then doing the second half. This will insure the flowers will be dispersed throughout the bucket when frozen. Freeze the bucket overnight.

To remove the ice bucket, remove the rocks from the inner bucket, then fill the inner bucket with warm water and let sit. Pour water out and then run warm water around the outside of the outer bucket. The beautiful ice bucket will eventually loosen and slide out.
