How to make a sugar skull votive for Halloween

Supplies you will need to make this easy Halloween craft:

The FREE leaves template is available in my resource library along with a load of other great prints and patterns. All you need to do is fill out the form and check your inbox for a welcome email with the password in. Click here to get in  >>>> FREE LIBRARY ACCESS

For this DIY to be successful, it is preferable to use glasses or jars with a vertical side, like these ones or those there. Avoid conical and overly flared shapes.

You just have to print the models, cut them to the right size. Wrap the sheet around the glass or the jar and hold with a piece of tape on the back. Put a LED tea light inside, and voila!

Sólo tienen que imprimir los modelos, recortar los a la medida y pegarlos alrededor de un vaso. Pongan una vela adentro, y listo!

Vous avez juste à imprimer les modèles, à les recouper à la bonne dimension et à les coller autour d’un verre.  Mettez une bougie à l’intérieur, et voila!

I choose to print the sugar skull pattern on white paper, but it will also look very nice on color sheets, these colors work great for Halloween.
