If you’re looking for incredibly simple Christmas crafts for teens, these DIY holiday luminaries are the perfect place to start.
After I shared how my family enjoyed making simple and frugal luminaries to decorate our home, I realized how much people really loved that craft. They’re the type of craft that teens love to make, so it’s a great way to get your older kids involved in crafting for the holiday. Luckily, the process I used can be adapted to fit any season.
Here’s how I used the same basic steps from the autumn luminary to create these – they’re the ideal decoration for the Christmas holiday and winter season.

DIY Holiday Luminaries
I used the same process as I used when making the fall luminaries, but changed the colors and images. For Christmas, I layered a green construction paper tree on red tissue paper and for winter, there are blue construction paper snowflakes adorning a white luminary.
To make these, you’ll need:
You’ll notice that I chose yet a different style for the glass holder (compared the autumn luminary and candy corn luminary), which I purchased from the dollar store. You can also check out yard sales and thrift stores for glass globes to use.
Hopefully, you can see how easy these luminaries are to create and adapt to the current holiday. My kids and I love decorating our home with our own creations. And when they’re as beautiful, simple, and frugal as these, it’s even better!
