Housetohome Christmas: How to make festive luminaries

Give your living room some added festive atmosphere with pretty luminaries.

In order to make these festive luminaries you will need a panoramic skyline image printed out in black and white.

With a ruler and pencil mark the lowest point in your picture where the sky starts – and do the same on the opposite side. Cut out your picture.

Glue the image onto a larger sheet of tracing paper. Leave 5-10cm from the skyline to the top of the tracing paper. Wrap around into a circular ‘tube’ style shape and secure with tape.

Sit on top of a battery operated tea light.
