PRINTABLE HALLOWEEN CANDLE WRAPPERS! OOOOOHHHHH!

This diy comes from www.mrprintables.com . Some really spooky candle wrappers!  If you don't like the waxy mess from candles, I would just use the led votive candle you can get at the Dollar Store.  They are usually 2 or 3 to a pack for a dollar! (what a bargain!)
