It's Craftastic! Constellation Luminaries


      Printed images of constellations sized at 7" x 2.5"

      Colored paper



      Awl or toothpick


      Glass votive holder

      Tealight candles

      • Gather supplies and cut paper to measure 7" x 2.5". Visit for printable templates.
      • Use a pin to poke holes through the points of the constellation.
      • Use an awl or toothpick to widen the holes made with the pin.
      • Lay the constellation image on top of the colored paper.
      • Use a pencil to fill in the points of the constellation. You may wish to create marks around the holes to keep track and make sure they're all filled in.
      • Check the colored paper to make sure all points of the constellation are marked and visible.
      • Repeat steps 2 and 3 on the colored paper to create holes for the light to shine through.
      • Wrap the colored paper around the votive holder and secure the edges with tape. Trim any excess paper to create a clean edge around the top of the glass.
      • Light a tealight candle and gently drop it into the luminary.
      • Repeat this project to create luminaries for all your favorite constellations.
