I am kicking off Craft Lightning holiday week with these simple Christmas luminaries. Craft Lightning is where I post quick 15 minute crafts all week plus I have a bunch of great blogs join me for the event. You can see what they have in store for you today at the bottom of this post. Then follow along as we share great ideas all week long. This post is sponsored by Heidi Swapp I was selected for this opportunity as a community member of Snap. All content and opinions are my own. You will love this quick and easy craft idea!
Heidi Swapp has a new holiday product available exclusively at Jo-Ann Fabric and Craft stores. I was lucky enough to receive a big box of goodies from the line. The product is for everything from cookie baking to holiday card kits to fun packaging items for gifts. I used a couple of the items to create these Christmas luminaries. If you want to make these, be sure to pick up the Merry Christmas bags as well as the cellophane bags that I used inside of them at Jo-Ann stores or online. There is a limited amount of product on hand so hurry! You will want to shop the entire collection….trust me!
These treat bags are in the package with the snow flake tags. I just used the bags. They are super simple to assemble. As soon as I saw them with the see through front, I knew I wanted to make Christmas luminaries!
I wanted to add sand to the bottom of the bag for some weight to set these outside. The bottom of the bag as assembled will not hold sand. So I used the gold polka dot cellophane bags from the collection as well.
I then added sand to the inside of the cellophane bag which is down inside of the paper box. I used a battery operated tea light for my Christmas luminaries due to the fire risk.
I set mine up on the steps outside. These will be perfect for an evening Christmas party to light the way up the stairs.
These Christmas luminaries look perfect when lit! I love the glow and the “Merry Christmas” that is pre-printed on the front.
Hurry and get these metallic gold polka dot boxes from your local J0-Ann stores! You don’t want to miss these or any of the Heidi Swapp collection.
