I’m madly getting through my DIY party crafts for my mother’s birthday party next week. This morning I finished the place card luminaries and I shared them on Instagram. After a friendly nudge, I thought I would post a couple of photos of the place cards. I am very pleased with the results.
To make the luminaries, I bought some heavy stock translucent paper from my local paper store and printed the design directly onto the paper. The paper was simply sealed with double-sided tape. It was really quite easy to do. I’ve ordered a bulk box of LED tea lights to go inside the luminary. I can’t wait to see them on the table.
I love using tealights to create ambience at the dinner table or around the room. For this project I had to use LED tea lights to ensure the paper didn’t catch alight. The LED tealights actually give off a flickering flame look which, makes it look like a real candle flicker. I added a strip of Washi tape to the tin packaging for a little festive flare. I think I’ll try and source some pin-striped orange Washi tape to keep with the colour theme of grey and orange. Well, I better get back into more crafting. Next up are the menu fans. Stay tuned for the next post.
Take care of you,
