Total Time 30 minutes or less Ages all-ages

If you have some plain paper, a marker and a piece of tape, you can make these luminaries in literally a few minutes! No fancy crafting supplies needed, just an LED tea light to illuminate them. Perfect for the holiday table, great as a night light, or for adding a little holiday cheer to the room.

What you'll need

  • 1 sheet of white copy/printer paper
  • Black and orange markers, crayons or colored pencils
  • Tape
  • Scissors
  • LED tea light candle
Helpful Tip:

Push the LED tea light to the front of the luminary so that it's just about touching the paper. LED tea lights are not nearly as bright as a real candle, so getting them closer to the paper will help the light shine through.

How to make it

    You can use plain printer or copy paper, or if you have drawing paper or construction paper, that works too! I used markers, but crayons and colored pencils will do the job as well.

    Fold paper in half lengthwise. Open up and cut along the crease. You can get two luminaries from one sheet of paper.

    Use the markers to draw a snowman face in the center of the paper.

    Tape the two ends of the paper together to form a cylinder. Place an LED tea light on the table and set your paper luminary over the top of the tea light. Done!
