Winter Luminaries

Paper luminaries are a wonderful addition to any home during the winter. They warm up a table or mantle, and fill us with cheer.  And best of all, they are so simple to make!  Just a little paper, some Cricut magic, a bit of glue, and an LED light, and you’re good to go!

Join us at one of two sessions on Thursday, December 2nd.  We’ll show how we used the CreationStation Makerspace’s Cricut Maker to cut out the pieces for the luminary and then all attendees will use the provided materials to craft two luminaries to take home at the end of the program.
