The intricate patterns shining through these luminarias (paper-bag lanterns illuminated by votive candles) are courtesy of doilies glued inside. Place a grouping of the lanterns in different sizes on a dinner table for a beautiful, glowing display.
Outdoor Holiday Luminarias ... Turn paper bags into dramatic luminarias by cutting out your own designs with a crafts knife, hole punchers, and scissors. Then wait for dusk, fill the bottom with sand, and drop in a tea light to bring your walkways to life. (Use battery-powered votives if you're not going to be at home while these are on display.)
Made these with 25 Rainbows aged yrs. We used cleaned old jars, painted them with PVA glue and stuck strips of white tissue paoer to them. Once dried, we glued on googly eyes and dabbed with red pen fir a blood effect. They were amazing and so easy to do.
