Snowflake Luminaries made from empty Toilet Paper Rolls

TP !

These little luminaries are easy to make and they look beautiful, no one will believe they were once toilet paper rolls! Here is a step by step guide of how I made them. =)

What you will need:

TP 2

* Empty toilet paper rolls

* Light blue and white paint ( I got mine at walmart in the craft section for .50 cents )

* White glitter ( I think white looks the best)

* Snow Flake punch ( I purchased mine from Michael’s)

* 2 Foam brushes

* Old news papers to work on

* Mini Tea Lights , the kind that are battery operated ( I bought mine at the dollar tree, DO NOT USE ANYTHING WITH A FLAME)

* Tooth pick ( you may or may not need this, I used it to get excess paint out of the punched snowflake.)


Step 1 :

First use your snowflake punch and punch snowflakes all around the top and bottom of the toilet paper roll. Try to make them as evenly spaced as possible. Save the snow flakes that you punched… you will use them later.

Step 2 :

Paint the toilet paper roll either blue or white (which ever you choose). I had to do 2 coats of paint. While paint is wet move on to step 3.
