  • You should have seen me! Every day I was searching on Pinterest trying to find that perfect, elegant but budget friendly centerpiece. Everything I fell in love with I was trying to see if I could recreate it myself for a total of less than $10 per table. I wanted something unique that I hadn't seen people in my immediate group of friends do already and was wanted something that I could do myself. Needless to say I wasn't having much luck, that is until I found these!

     

    These Candle Luminary's can make for a beautiful and unique centerpiece for your wedding. The best part of these is they are pretty budget friendly and easy to make. 

    Materials: 

    Metal Sheeting (Home Depot offers 12 x 24 inch, 24 x 36 inch and 36 x 36 inch sheets) Multi-Purpose Snips Super Glue

    Optional:

    Cylander template Spray Paint

    Instructions:

    The first thing you want to decide is how big you want your luminarias. I bought a 12 x 24 inch sheet to practice with. My goal was to get three, different sized luminaries out of one sheet. The really great thing about these metal sheets is that they are flexible and you can test to see what size you want to do before you cut. 

    Once you have found the size you want, cut the metal and then form it into a circle. This can be the most time consuming part as you may need to bend and re-bend it to get it just about as circular as you would like. 

    Tip: You can use a cylinder template around the size of the luminary you are wanting. For example: soup cans, candles, etc.

    Use super-glue or some sort of adhesive glue to hold the luminaries shape. Below is a picture of the finished project. 

    Put votive candles inside and voila! Your one of a kind candle luminary centerpieces. 

    Tip :My suggestion is to get the 36 x 36 inch metal sheets and cut them into 5 12 x 24 sheets. I made the 3 luminaries above from 1 12 x 24 inch sheet. Depending on the design, the 36 x 36 sheets can run about $32+, and will get you about 5 tables worth of luminaries. That makes 5 tables for about $7 a piece (not including votive candles).

    Other Options:

    If you aren't satisfied with the silver color, there are black metal sheets or you can spray paint it to match your wedding colors.

    You can also use the cylinder's as vases for either fresh or silk flowers. 

    Either way you choose to use it, these can make for a great centerpiece for your wedding that will surely have your guests talking!
