Instructions to Make a Haunted House Candle Holder

Cut black paper to wrap completely around cylinder; set aside. Cut tissue to fit around cylinder and tape in place along the seam. With the gel pen, draw a house or a series of buildings on the precut black paper (or buy a haunted house stencil at a crafts store). Cut out a silhouette with the artist’s knife, wrap around cylinder, and tape in place. Place a candle inside and light it.
