I love how simple these photo jar luminaries are to make.  They are so effective and they can be changed on a regular basis.  They would be perfect for table settings for a family celebration such as a christening or wedding.  How wonderful to have these on the table for your next family birthday.  My boys love talking about their family and hearing stories of the early years and these are a great conversation starter.

How to make Photo Jar Luminaries

Jar luminaries are one of our things.  We make them every season and the boys love making them and love giving them as gifts and using them on a regular basis.  These are no exception and they are going to be giving these to their Nana for her birthday.

You can print in both colour and sepia or black and white and the images all look amazing when they have a candle behind them.

First off pick the images you want to print.  Horizontal are better as you can wrap them around the jars.  If your jar is too big for one then use two.

Trim your images to fit either with scissors or a paper trimmer.

Place a strip of double-sided tape down your jar to use as a seam for the photos.  The aim is to stick the edges of the photo to it when you wrap it around the jar.

You can even use this method to transform a candle in a jar.  They look amazing, especially when the candle is nearly all used.

I found it easier to trim the vellum once it was wrapped around the candle especially as it has slightly slanted sides.
