It's a blustery day, perfect for a cup of tea and an
afternoon in the craft room. Grab a mug and make your self at home. Today I am working on these easy-peasy glitter luminaries.
I love luminaries and inexpensive, quick and easy crafts in equal measure, so I really love these.
Back in the late 60's and the 70's I adored the frosted candles
that were popular around Christmas.

I remember how grown up I felt spending a whole dollar to buy one for my mom's Christmas present.
Quite a jump up from the ten cent Anchor Hocking mini vase of the year before!

I have made a variety of luminaries over the years including these, which I shared on my main blog, Eclectic Shorebird, last year.
What is easier than glitter and glue? Popping a battery powered tealight into a jar!
Who doesn't love embellishing? I hoard bits of plastic garland, and vintage Christmas do-dads for projects like this.
This project was perfect when I wanted to beef up
some Shabby Pink & Pastel Christmas vignettes.
Here are a few images I have used in this project. They are from my personal collection of vintage Christmas cards.
So that was the long way to get to say this,
I am making some silhouette luminaries this year.
I have been beguiled by black and white Christmas decor and
since my mom found me a fab white Christmas tree, prelit, for 25.00 I have decided my winter project will be creating decorations with a black and white theme.
But more on that later.
Thank you for joining me for tea in the craft room.
Wishing you a Merry Christmas!
