I love luminaries! And these are so simple to make - we just recycled some empty glass jars, pulled out some electrical tape (masking tape would work also) and used enamel paint we had left over from an old project (acrylics would be great as well). I also found some battery powered tea light at a local bookstore for only 75 cents a pop, so these were so inexpensive to make also!
I started by cutting out some shapes from the tape to stick onto the jar. Then Mina painted away. So funny how none of my girls ever want to paint things the color they "should" be...
I wasn't able to take any pictures before Maisy was this far into painting hers. She even decided to paint the inside a bit.
And this is my first picture of Lou's project, she did her own tape cutting and sticking. I love how she always puts eyelashes on everything.
After the paint dried completely I peeled the tape off to let the light shine through. Aren't these fun?
