Paper Snowman Luminaries in 3 Minutes


  • 1 sheet of white copy/printer paper
  • Black and orange markers crayons or colored pencils
  • Tape
  • Scissors
  • LED tea light candle


  • You can use plain printer or copy paper, or if you have drawing paper or construction paper, that works too! I used markers, but crayons and colored pencils will do the job as well.
  • Fold paper in half lengthwise. Open up and cut along the crease. You can get two luminaries from one sheet of paper.
  • Use the markers to draw a snowman face in the center of the paper.
  • Make as many as you like! Try different mouths and noses for variations.
  • Tape the two ends of the paper together to form a cylinder. Place an LED tea light on the table and set your paper luminary over the top of the tea light. Done!


Push the LED tea light to the front of the luminary so that it's just about touching the paper. LED tea lights are not nearly as bright as a real candle, so getting them closer to the paper will help the light shine through.
