DIY Creating Paper Bag Luminarias: Place one to two inches of sand in the bottom of each paper bag. Nestle a tealight or votive candle into the center of the sand. When you're ready to use your luminaria, just light the wick of the tealight or candle.
Luminaries Use gold doilies on the inside of white luminary bags and flameless tea lights. You can cut the bags to be different sizes. If you want to use different colored bags use darker colored doilies.

Lacy Luminarias... The intricate patterns shining through these luminarias (paper-bag lanterns illuminated by votive candles) are courtesy of doilies glued inside. Place a grouping of the lanterns in different sizes on a dinner table for a beautiful, glowing display. #howtodecorateweddingcandles
