MINI 3D PRINTED FAROLITO LUMINARIA
A New Mexico holiday staple, this 3D printed mini farolito is a modern, playful take on the traditional paper sidewalk decoration. This version comes with a flameless LED candle and can be used to warm and decorate any home or business. These models come with slight variations, just like the real bags! They are approximately 3×2.5×1.5 (approximately 1/4 the size of a real paper bag farolito – please see photos for measurements).

Plastic LED candle, 2032 battery included.
HISTORY and APPLICATION of the FAROLITO
The farolito (or luminaria, depending on who you ask!) has been a holiday custom in New Mexico for generations. Formerly bonfires made of stacked piñon branches, the traditional farolito is now a decorative paper bag weighed down with sand and illuminated by the inside from a candle’s flame. Residents and business owners line rows of farolitos down sidewalks, walls, and parapets as a way to welcome the holiday season.
