Add a little glam to your holiday mantel! Together these frosted paper Christmas luminaries spell out the word noel and feature tiny stars scattered all the way around.
Because the design is intricate, we recommend using a cutting machine for this project. Just download our SVG file and follow our simple instructions below.
The first (paper) noel
You can make your frosted paper Christmas luminaries in whatever color of paper you like. We chose a frosted white to complement our papercut herb wreath. But they would also be really pretty in a gold shade from our metallic golds pack.
If using a cutting machine, this project will be quick and easy. As always, we like to add LED tea lights to our paper luminaries and lanterns, which give off a warm and cozy glow behind the vellum. We can’t wait to see how you decorate your mantel or table with these — share pictures by tagging #MadeWithLia on Instagram or by posting to the Facebook page for members!

Cut the template (we recommend using a cutting machine), then cut a piece of vellum to layer behind the design. Roll the paper and glue the ends together. Add your LED tea light, then put your luminaries on display!
