luminaries for spring and summer

summer luminariesOkay, so you know how I mentioned we are leaving behind the hassle or dumping too much money into our long awaited remodel. Well…it’s official.

The cottage has a beautiful deck for outdoor entertaining and with the beach out our back gate, I envision friends, margaritas, great food, beautiful sunsets and lots of laughs.

  2. Vellum paper, cute twin and tags (Michael’s)
  3. Word Art or a graphic program for text (I used 48 pitch, centered at one third of the page).
  4. What to say: What ever you want…
  5. Cut about one inch off the vellum. Just enough to keep in from burning.
  6. Hot glue along the edge of the vellum, glue the edges together fast…
  7. Tie tag on with cute twin.
  8. Now go eat, drink and laugh with good friends for hours. xoxo
