These luminaries are perfect for outdoor weddings, especially weddings on the beach or in a park. It gives a burst of color and light and adds some design to it. These are an EEEBCDI project. For new readers that means 'easy enough even Bill can do it' which means I had my husband who is very un-crafty try it, and he had no problem pulling it all together. So for the un-crafty bride this is a perfect project.
