Lace Vellum Luminarias Clip Art

It doesn't get any easier than this: Just print, cut, and wrap to make the projects here. To make square luminarias beautiful enough to be centerpieces, we simply magnified the lace pattern. Placed in a row, with no extra flourishes, the presentation positively glows with sophistication.

    What do you print this clip art out onto? Is there a bottom to the luminaria? If the straight piece is just folded into a the square, how do you attach it to make it stick along end edge?

    having a problem getting this. Can anyone help?

  • 29 Dec, 2012

    cannot get the clip art!!!

  • 23 Nov, 2012

    Anyone else having trouble bringing up the clipart link? It keeps saying service unavailable.

  • 27 Jun, 2012

    This project is really nice but where are the instructions?

  • 12 Jun, 2012

    Sorry, that meant to say candles not cables, haha!

  • 12 Jun, 2012

    Oh I forgot to ask whether these have bases as I want to use real cables rather than LED lights. If not, do you have any advice on how to fashion bases from scratch?

    Hiya, I was just wondering whether there were three
    lace patterns in the picture? The one on the farthest left looks different to the others or is it just me :s

    frenchprof: Do you have Photoshop or Photoshop Elements? There's an easy way to change the colors if you do.

    can someone tell me how to change the color of these luminaries? I love them and they'd be perfect for my diy wedding!

  • 3 Jun, 2012

    can someone email and tell me how to change the color. I'd like gray and yellow or orange. I'd really appreciate it! This is a great option for my diy wedding!

    if so, feel free to email me at

    For anyone confused on how they got this look, since there are no instructions:

  • 23 Jan, 2012

    laladyblue~would you tell me how you changed the color if it is not too much trouble?

    also, did anyone make these to be displayed on a round table? in the photo i see a rectangular table which looks good but how would one arrange them on a large round? how many vases would be sufficient? any ideas? thanks.

    I am looking for this template in a light pink is anyone able to alter it and email it to me?

  • 30 Dec, 2011

    When I open the template, all I see is a single sheet of printed lace. How is this to become a bag to hold the votive? Please send me all the directions. Also, I saw that there are several patterns, can you please send all of them to me. Also, I also saw a question asking how to change the color. Thanks

  • 16 Dec, 2011

    Laladyblue, or anyone else, could you please help me change the color of mine? I would like a plum purple and maybe gold? Thank you so much

  • 13 Dec, 2011

    How does one change the color of the lace? Please help.

  • 4 Sep, 2011

    I absolutely love the luminaries. I tried them the ones you have on vellum and they were fantastic. There looks to be at least five different patterns. Is there any way that I could get the other patterns? I am getting married on the 17 of September if I could know as soon as possible. Thank you


  • 23 Aug, 2011

    MrsMora- If it's not too late I could change the lace for you and e-mail it to you once I'm done =) I could change it to what ever color you would like.

  • 21 Mar, 2011

    Here is a similar project with better instructions.

  • 9 Mar, 2011

    does anyone know if the color of the lace can be changed??

    Disappointing with the lack of instructions. Please provide.

  • 1 Jun, 2010

    How do I make them. They are beautiful

  • 30 May, 2010

    It's not so hard to figure out- all you do is print this onto vellum and then fold into a bag shape and secure with a glue stick or double sided clear photo stickers... viola!

  • 30 May, 2010

    I agree, not a good photo and no instructions.

    This was very poorly edited. No instructions and impossible to see photograph. Could you please re-do this one, as the idea sounds lovely, and from the response, lots of us would like to make these.

  • 28 May, 2010

    Martha, these sound lovely. But, please give more directions-- what do you wrap? What kind of candle or votive is used. Specifics, please. I'm excited to make these for a shower.

  • 28 May, 2010

    Paper on the inside of a candle holder of any kind would be dangerous. These look like they are wrapped around glass vases.

  • 28 May, 2010

    Reply to BabsyAnne: I don't think these are meant to be wrapped around anything. I think they are just free standing (inside, so no wind) around a votive or other candle that is already in a container. You could always secure it directly around a vase or glass or votive holder to make it more secure, especially if you want to use it outside.

  • 28 May, 2010

    Please give us folding instructions.

    Thank you

  • 28 May, 2010

    What do you wrap the clip art around? Did I miss something?

  • 28 May, 2010

    Am I just slow, or should there be some kind of instructions with this project?

  • 28 May, 2010

    Why do they insist on showing things on the same color background? I can't see the patterns on these very well. It may be "artsy" photography, but it's still impractical and stupid. This website is also frustratingly slow, even with a cable connection.

  • 12 Mar, 2010

    How do I get the lace template to be a different color??

  • 14 May, 2009

    try using the instructions for the mini gift bags, or just wrap the velum around a round or square vase. Note that it is difficult to print on velum because it will warp
    with all of the wet ink. I also like to use the battery tea lights...much safer!!

  • 22 Apr, 2009

    where are the instructions for this project?
