Pricked Paper Tea Light Luminary

Add a beautiful and warm glow to your Christmas festivities when you make the Pricked Paper Tea Light Luminary! The easy Christmas craft is a creative way to transform old drinking glasses into beautiful decorations.

From the blogger: "If you need last-minute decorations for your Christmas table, you can make these luminaries with straight drinking glasses and paper. The images are pricked onto the white paper and lets the colorful light shine through from the translucent paper. These luminaries look especially beautiful and festive when the room is dark as the color of the translucent paper really shows through. Washi tape is added as a border to give the decoration a finished look. Templates of small Christmas images that you can use are provided with this project.

"Once Christmas is over, these paper wraps can be then removed and the glasses can be used again as drinking glasses."

Estimated CostUnder $10

How neat are these luminaries? I am so in love with the fact that you can take the covers off of the candle holders and use these glasses as regular items when the holidays are complete. I think that is such an ingenious idea. The red is so fun too. I can't wait to make a batch of these up.

That's a great last minute decorating idea and not only for Christmas. I can see this on the table or piano for Valentine's Day, for Easter, for Independence Day, for Thanksgiving and so on, just by changing the colors of the paper. It looks really nice and quick to do, too.
