DIY: Luminaries & Votive Holders

After showing you how to add a some non flame 'candlelight' with Throwie DIY LED lights, we thought we'd share some fun DIY votive and luminary holders you can make yourself!
Use these to inspire you to light your wedding aisle, line outdoor pathways, hang from trees, or use as centerpieces. With the use of LEDs, no worries about fire restrictions! Get the candlelight like glow you had always visioned for your wedding day!
If you want to drop a couple of LEDs in these, it's safe and economical! Shred a little bit of pearly cellophane and top your LED light with it in the container to mask the light source just a little if someone peeks inside and you don't want the source so very obvious ;)

Etching and frosting glass
can mask the light source, just a little bit

Save-On-Crafts has tons of crafty ideas!

These are fantastic, not candles, just the forms,
light from the inside with whatever you like! DIY Network
