Scary pumpkins and ghosts and Frankenstein! Oh my! Paper bags decked out in Expressions Washi Tape* make fun luminaries.


*May damage some substrates upon removal.

  • Sketch your design on the paper bag.


  • Use Expressions Washi Tape to fill in your outline on the bag. You may need to lay strips of tape on a cutting board and cut out shapes. This works best for complex shapes and details such as hair and eyes.


  • Adhere tape details to the bag to create faces.


  • Place six flameless (battery-operated) candles in each bag to make your luminaries glow brightly.


  • EXPERT TIP: Buy paper bags in different colors: Green for Frankenstein. Orange for a jack-o-lantern. White for a ghost.
