To make these adorable luminarias inspired by cake-decorating stencil, download the template and print onto 11-by-17 paper. Fold the paper like an accordion or wrap around a glass cylinder.

Little effort. Huge results. No decoupaging. What more could you ask for?

Does anyone know what brand of China she used here? I have looked everywhere for it and I cannot find it.

You should set these around a glass cylinder w/ the candle inside.

I plan to use these and I'm going to use those little battery operated flameless candles . They flicker like real candles. I want to put these outside any idea how to weigh them down?

To change the color, this is what I did... I opened the template, then did the snapshot tool and copied "the selected grahic." Then I pasted the graphic into publisher and right clicked on the picture. Then go to "format picture,' then to the picture tab and hit recolor. You can select whatever color you want

I love this idea and I want to use it in a November wedding. However I am concerned about how to keep these from moving around, traditional luminaties are bags and are held in place with sand and votive candle holders. So how do I make these work?

Click on the Luminaries in Black... there are 5 templates there. Also, for invitations you could adapt the menu template into invitations:

I have a couple of questions: There are a couple of different designs/templates on the luminarias in the picture, but only one downloadable template available? I was wondering where I could get the other designs? Also, I love this motif so much, and I was wondering if there are invitations with this design? Thanks!!
