Pottery Barn Inspired Halloween Luminaries

I was thumbing through a magazine the other day when I saw these cute little Pottery Barn  battery operated luminaries from Pottery Barn Kids. I can't find them on line, but let me tell you that they are caautte! But, they start at $8 each!!! So, I decided to make my own. And, here they are! I am so pleased with how they turned out!


All I used were old food jars from peanut butter, jelly or canning, tiny tea candles (or your could even use those little battery operated luminaries that are like 2 or 3 for a dollar at $ Tree). Then, I made and found some images and printed them out and cut them to fit my glass jars. Then tape or glue it in place on the back and enjoy your FREE luminaries. If anyone wants them I will try to see if I can upload the images I made for you all to print and use. Or, I'm sure you could easily find your own too.

Here are the images:

I printed them on regular paper. I think if you used vellum the candle might show through too much. I will try to get the pictures I used put up asap. Thanks!

The black and white color scheme gives these such a classic feel. It is often hard to find that in Halloween decor. Love it!
