    This are great for luminaries too! I used light green tissue paper an old flower vase turned up side down for the Alien. I used mod podge to stick the tissue to the vase. Next I cut out the templates and placed them on top of the tissue and added a top coat of mod podge to seal it. I used red tissue paper with Dracula. Thanks for all the great ideas!
