Lilac Rose Petals Luminary

"This outdoor luminary is so easy to make. Just cut off the spoon handles, add hot glue, apply the petals, and attach to the glass bowl in an overlapping manner. The best part is that all of the materials are available from the dollar store!"

Primary Technique: General Crafts

Occasion/Theme: Summer


Materials List
  • Clear plastic spoons (100)
  • Faux Rose petals (2 pks of 100)
  • Hot glue gun
  • Craft scissors
  • Large glass container
  • LED battery operated candle
  1. Cut off the handles from the spoons.
  2. Glue petals to spoons using hot glue.
  3. Glue the spoon petals on the glass container starting at the top rim, overlapping the petals.
  4. Continue gluing petals on glass by rows staggering each row.
  5. Midway, turn container upside down to make it easier to glue the remaining petals on. Leave space on the bottom to glue on a row of plain petals so that the glass container can sit flat on the surface.
  6. Insert a LED flameless candle and you're all set!

This DIY craft project looks lovely indoors or outdoors!

What a beautiful way to DIY a light -- and on a tight budget, too! I'm going to show my sister this tutorial so she can add it to her list of DIY wedding decorations. It'll look perfect in the ceremony or reception!

I love the look and the color. My grand daughters two favorite colors are pink and purple so you know who will end up getting this for her bedroom. I love the melting spoon part as I have done it before, just make sure you do it in a well ventilated area. I did mine on the back porch. Thank you for sharing this great idea.

I love this Lilac Rose Petals Luminary craft. I've been looking for a unique idea for my daughters late summer wedding. These will look great on the tables. I like the idea of using LED flameless candle, and the rose peddles colors can be changed. Thank-you for this free craft idea.

Love this! It's absolutely beautiful!

Love it!! Iv tried to get the free sample but something went wrong. Is there any way to get the instructions sent to me printed out along with other craft ideas? Thank you.
