DIY Halloween Luminaries

DIY Halloween luminaries and lights brew up the biggest impact on your ghostly decor, and they make for easy DIY Halloween crafts from recycled materials, such as paper bags, tin cans, old mason jars, or milk jugs. With Halloween just around the corner, it’s time to start setting the spooky stage! Here are 4 easy DIY Halloween Luminary Ideas:

1. DIY Paper Bag Luminaries

Halloween paper bag lights aren’t anything new, but they are the easiest and most economical way to light things up. You can cut or hole punch your designs out of the bag using stencils, or by simply free handing it. Even easier, use Sharpies to draw faces, words, or other designs. If you have them, stamps would also work nicely. For larger displays, save up your paper grocery and department store bags. I like the idea of displaying paper luminaries along the walkway, leading the way up to your front door. They are also spooktacular on the mantel, kitchen counter, or as a centerpiece for your dining table. Trick or Treat!
