Halloween Luminaria

Here is a special decoration you can make to add the Halloween spirit to your bathroom or window sill. It is easily made in an evening by using Stampin' Up!'s Fancy Favorite die and designer paper. You can make more for each season of the year by changing out the designer paper, inks, and stamps. Use a battery operated tea light for that special glow.
