Several steps are necessary to make a homemade dry ice machine.
Step 1: Fill a container with hot water
Add 5 gallons of hot water to a bucket or other container. The hotter the water, the more fog the dry ice creates.
Step 2: Add dry ice
Wearing gloves, carefully place a 5-lb. piece of dry ice into the water. Do not drop it, since this can make the water and pieces of dry ice splash.
Step 3: Turn on a small fan
Use a small fan set to the lowest speed to move the fog around the room.
