    Finished my LED tea light luminaries tonight! Thank you so much for the helpful ideas. Took a picture with my Blackberry. I wanted to take a picture with the tea lights all lit up but it didn't turn out so well. Here's the finished product.

        It depends on the quality of the LED lights...I've seen some pretty bad ones reminiscent of the Christmas candles people put in their windows for Christmas...ummm yeah. I'm getting married in JA in Aprill and my WP says its the windiest month. But she guarantees that if the the votive holder is tall/deep enough, it will protect the flame from the wind...

            Vellum is the thick, transparent paper you see in invitations. You can get different kinds of vellum in any scrapbook stores. I bought the LED tea lights from Dollar Tree then I cut the vellum in about 2.5 in. strips and wrapped them around the tea lights using a hot glue. I used a stamper to put the words WITH LOVE on the vellum.

            I originally wanted to do glass candle votives and wrap them with vellum to be used as luminaries but then my WC did say that it was too windy and sometimes, tea light candles could not remain lit.
