Quick and Free DIY Luminaries!
It's so easy that I don't really consider this a tutorial--I feel that it would be insulting to you, my crafty reader. So I've distilled this project into one easy equation:
Cardboard Tube + Hole Punch + White Craft Paper + Double-sided Tape + Battery-operated LED votive = Glowing, Flickering Mantle Magic!
Because I just have a standard little hole punch, I did have to get crafty to reach all areas of the tubes. I ended up folding them in half vertically and punching through two layers of cardboard along the sides. I'd be an irresponsible blogger if I didn't remind you to use battery operated candles only; flames in paper tubes would be bad news. Be creative and enjoy!
