Easy Fall Candle upcycle

Sometimes a plain candle just won't do.
Here is a 5 minute way to add charm to any candle for any occassion.

Pillar candles
Metal eyelets
Cardstock images

I chose some orange pillar candles 
from our local resale store --for a dollar.

Next, print out the images you want to have on your candle.
I chose some sweet vintage postcard images and printed out on cardstock.
{I have the printables for you below!}
Punch your holes in each side of your
 trimmed image and add your eyelets. 
 The eyelets add strength to your cardstock so 
you can "tie" on your image to the candle with the twine.
  Cute and festive!

Here are your printables
(I've never done this before, so I hope they are good images)
