DIY: Recycle Paper Bags to Create Colourful Luminaries

Hello! Hope you all are in the best of spirits!
I came across a couple of tutorials I've done in the last few months mainly done for a local daily. Just didn't have the time to share them with you people. So for sometime now on, I'll be filling up my blog with these DIYs & Projects. The coming weeks will see a lot of tutorials and the projects I've been on. To start with, here's a super simple tutorial on using paper bags to make luminaries. A great way to recycle and create décor for your home, parties and events. 

  • A Paper Bag
  • Crepe Paper/Kite Paper in different colours
  • Glue
Step 1: Begin with neatly trimming of the upper part of the paper bag. 
Step 2: Make strips from crepe paper. Use different colours for a colourful & vibrant look.
Step 3: One by one glue the colourful crepe paper strips to the paper bag.
Here's what you're final product will look like. 

Use LED tea lights or place a plain glass votives to light your luminary up. Alternatively, this can be used outdoors using sand  to hold pillar candles.

I hope you enjoy making these! A great alternative to add some quirky element to your home décor/event décor. They're sure going to brighten up all your blues. ;) Try it out!

Till then,
Happy Crafting!
