How to Make Mini House Luminaries

This post contains some affiliate links. Please see our full privacy policy and disclosure here.

First step:  Download the free printable using the form above and print them out on 8.5″x11″ card stock. I really like using this great card stock , it’s has a nice weight, yet very easy to print and cut.

I also made free templates of another set of mini houses if you want a little more variety! You can check them out here.

Step two: Cut around the outline and cut out those window openings. Score along the edges of walls and tabs that fold over.

Step Three: Make the folds along the score lines, then glue the little house together. The little house will have an open bottom – no floor – so we can put it over an LED tea light candle. I used these, they have a nice bright and warm glow.

See how easy these are to make? Now you are ready to create a magical little village with them!
