10-Minute Halloween Luminarias
Looking for a super-fast last-minute Halloween decoration? These little luminarias take no time at all and are totally adorable!
I used the white paper bags and Bat Trio die set from A Muse Studio. The three bat dies come attached to each other, but you can twist them apart to make them more versatile for techniques like this. Just run the bag through your die cut machine a few times (be careful not to cut through the bottom!) and you're done! Easy as pumpkin pie! :)
I put some glass marbles (the ones used in flower vases) in the bottom of my bags, and plopped a battery operated tealight on top of the marbles. You can certainly use a real votive candle, but you'll want to use sand in the bottom of the bag, and make sure the candle is stuck down into the sand securely. Be careful lighting the candle and don't leave them unattended while lit!
Thanks for stopping by! See you next time :)
