DIY Beautiful Candle Luminary From A Soda Bottle

This DIY candle luminary or sleeve is so easy and inexpensive it would be silly not to give it a try.  All you need is a 2 liter soda bottle, a festive napkin and a little bit of Modge Podge.  I would stay away from using a real candle and use the battery operated version.  Thanks to Redo It Yourself Inspirations for the great idea.

I cut a 2 liter bottle into three parts.
The top, middle and bottom.

Then I swiped a Christmas napkin and separated it to use the printed part.

Cutting the printed part to fit the middle section of the bottle, enough to fold over the top and the bottom of the plastic, I used Gloss Mod Podge to attach it.

I didn’t fret over the wrinkles as much as the ones on my face. I wanted it to have character, like me.

Then painted on the Mod Podge over the entire napkin (on the fold overs and on the outside). Then walked around with it on my arm to dry all morning….
