10 DIY Halloween Luminaries

Luminaries are a really fun way to add some Halloween spirit to your entryway and porch. Guests always love them and most luminaries are really easy to make! I especially love the paper bag ones. They remind me of when I was a kid and would make some around Halloween time. But back then we used real candles – yikes! There are some really cute, cheap and easy ways to light up your home with decorative Halloween luminaries. They are perfect for a party or just to have out to light the way for trick or treaters! Either way, they are a lot of fun. I love them! Here are 10 awesome DIY Halloween luminaries to check out and try.
