Jean Shea: Hi! My name is Jean Shea with Shea Studio Interiors and I am showing you how to create a beautiful holiday home. I am going to show you how to make luminaries which are very nice, inviting touch to add to your entry when you are having company and it s so easy to do, you just need a little paper bag, lunch bag size. You can use sand or you can use birdseed and the good thing about birdseed is when you are done with your luminaries, you can spread it out and give the birds a little holiday treat. You need a little votive candle and you can use a stamp, you can use serrated scissors or you do not have to really decorate the luminary at all. So easy, all you have to do is you can serrate the edge of your bag if you like. Give it a nice little edge if you want, you can add little decorations at the top, don t have to, you can use just use a plain paper bag. You put some birdseed in the bottom of your luminary, just enough to keep the bags weighted so that they do not blow away in the wind. You put your little votive candle, right down there in the center. So that is how easy it is to make a luminary and now, I am going to show you how to make a floral arrangement.
