Christmas decorating: Create a warm welcome...

Our favorite way to light up the season is with a brilliant array of paper luminaries. Line them along front walks, driveways, and porches for a fiery Christmas display that's so simple (and affordable) to pull off.

To create your own gleaming arrangement, generously cover the bottom of white paper bags with sand, which will keep them sturdy and stationary when exposed to the elements. Arrange bags in desired positions (the luminaries lining the walk above at  all 2 feet apart), and then insert tea lights or battery-operated LEDs.

Bright Idea! For a twist, use a hole punch to create snowflake patterns, or adhere letter-shaped stickers spelling out a holiday message such as "NOEL" or "CHEERS" to the bags. (Safety note: Never leave luminaries unattended, and extinguish the flames when finished.)
