We love luminaries! But we also worry about open flames around kids, pets and drunken family members. So, we came up with these awesome, super easy DIY, no-flame luminaries
These are Halloween versions but you can use these for New Year’s, Christmas, birthday parties, anytime parties and more.
You will need:
Black permanent marker
White paper bags, like these.Flameless tea lights like these.
The amounts really just depend on where you are going to use them.
Simply draw “ghost” faces on the bags. We did happy faces, sad, scary, goofy, etc. You’ll be surprised how many types of faces you can come up with. Let loose!
Then, drop a flameless tealight into the bag and there you go! Each little tealight is battery operated and has an on/off switch so you don’t waste battery life when you don’t need them.
It told you. EASY. Ghoulishly easy.
Some other ideas…you can do these with translucent cups or plastic milk jugs instead of the paper bags. You can use them individually throughout the house, outside or, if your stairs are just inside the front door, up the stairway during Trick or Treat night for an eye-catching treat for your visitors. If you decide to use these for outdoor decorating, throw a few small rocks or some sand in the bottom of each bag to help weigh them down and keep them standing upright.
