These luminaries are very pretty and using the crayon me,ting technique really gives this an artistic flair! Use white, silver or red and green for winter holidays and decor, oranges and reds for fall, Halloween and Thanksgiving, red, white and b,he for summer, etc. you could also,opt for those battery operated stick up LED lights for a bigger glow than battery tea lights if you want a bolder look..and still be safe!

These are so pretty and I never melted crayons when I was growing up. I am sure all kids will love these Melted Crayon Luminaries and they would be so pretty sitting outside along the deck on a peaceful night or even on a table for candlelight .I also do not trust the paper bags and real candles so I would also use the battery operated tea lights.Does it work with these as lights? I hope so because I would love to make some with grand kids.

The idea of paper and fire with kids is a little scary. I love the look of these, but I think I will use those battery-powered tealights, instead!
