Tutorial: D.I.Y. Mason Jar Vellum Luminary

Looking for a quick and beautiful tutorial? I have the perfect project for you! All you need is a printer, a piece of vellum, a mason jar and a favorite photo. End result?


For our wedding we took engagement pictures of the two of us holding numbers 1 through 15. We printed up a bunch of each, framed one of each number and used them as table numbers. Then we labeled envelops with each of our guests names on them and stuck in the photo that belonged to the table they were assigned to. I see these luminaries being used instead of the framed picture on the tables! How cute would that be?!

How to Make:

Materials Needed:
Scissors
Vellum
Mason Jar
Printer
Candle

Instructions:
1) Pick out your favorite Picture. 
2) Print to the desired size. I printed a 5x7 for my quart sized jar
3) Cut out picture
4) Drop in the mason jar.
5) Drop in the candle, light, and enjoy!!

Where to Buy:
It didn't take me long to find a number of great options for purchasing vellum luminaries. Here are a few of my favorites!

ThePaperyNook originally drew my attention because of the fun fonts she used in her luminaries, turns out she also makes my other favorite escort card theme, river rocks! If you're planning a wedding, you must check out her store! 




Poppy Seed Station incorporates beautiful colors and other images such as flowers and trees into her luminaries. Check out her wonderful variety and browse her wide selection!







KLRDesigns creates luminaries with a wonderful flurry of words, symbols and patterns. You're guarenteed to love them!
