We loved these great luminaria (shown below) that Kelly Wilkinson shared on A Practical Wedding so much that we wanted to share them with you here, too!
They are so budget friendly and easy to do, and create such a nice ambiance….that’s a win in our books! Kelly lays out a more detailed tutorial…if you feel like you need extra instruction I definitely recommend it.
But basically, you just iron some foliage or petals (or whatever else that’s flat) between wax paper, cut them into equal panels (we just traced a template), tape the panels together using washi or scotch tape, and then we hot glued some little balsa wood sticks for added support, but you don’t have to… (The balsa wood sticks are super cheap and available at most craft stores. You could also use little twigs though if you want them to look more rustic.)
