I have more posts of projects from the weekend to share but I wanted to start with some great paper luminaries I made with the help of friends from the neighborhood. We will use these at our annual block party coming up in just a couple of weeks.
They were very simple to make. We simply cut strips of colored paper, hole punched them in a random pattern and then taped them onto jars in layers.
They aren't perfect but that is exactly the look we are going for. I used all kinds of jars - baby food, spaghetti and peanut butter. Basically anything with a wide mouthed opening to make it easy to light. I can't wait to show the bunting we made and the tarts I made from the apples we picked.
Reed was very tuckered out tonight. He did so much of this...
That he was sound asleep by 7:01.
So looking foward to the block party!
