Deck the Yard With Creative Winter Designs
The layered look also works for luminarias. Be sure the materials you choose cannot catch fire if candle wax or flames touch them (or use battery-powered candles for an extra measure of safety). To make these luminarias in glass vases, place fat white candles on top of half of the river rocks you wish to use. Continue placing black rocks inside to anchor the candle. Magnolia leaves and a sprinkling of red winterberries complete the look. Don't use holly; in cold weather, it turns black.
For impact, make many luminarias to circle your home or line your porch or entryway stairs.
