Light the path to your front door with a magical line of luminarias: votive candles placed inside small paper bags that have been weighted down with sand. Flameless, battery-charged candles take away any worries about fire and still achieve the desired effect.
Okay, we admit it: we’re already thinking about the holidays. We love this look as a way to welcome guests to any Christmas gathering. If you’re stretched too thin to make your own (we’ve all been there!), you can buy them from Wayfair.
And finally, we leave you with this stunning image taken in Japan at a Winter Illuminations event. Every year, the country holds festivals of light to commemorate the 1995 Great Hanshin earthquake, when power outages led to the use of lanterns, which have since beLancome symbols of recovery and hope.
Beautiful, flattering and always romantic, lanterns and luminarias transform any setting into something extraordinary. It doesn't matter whether you make one or buy one, just make sure you have one (or two… or thirty) this season.
Light up our day and show us your favorite luminaria project! #CricutMade
