1 Trace the skull motif and transfer onto coloured paper. Center the design between the two short sides and approximately 6 cm up from the bottom. Hold in place using masking tape.

2 Cut out the design with a craft knife, keeping the template on hand to make sure you trim the right sections. Then, use a hole punch to create the circles around the top of the skull.

3 Once the design is complete, curve the paper around to make a cylinder shape. Add glue down one side, overlap the opposite edge and adhere.

4 Place the tea light inside a glass jar and position the paper cylinder over the jar.
