Creepy Vellum Spider Web Candle Shades- free download



Edit: 9/10 download link updated! Let me know if you have any problems opening it! Thanks!
I played around with a spider web template from Martha Stewart's website and came up with these printable candle shades! I printed mine on vellum, but it would work just as well printed on regular paper. You basically just have to cut the sheet in half lengthwise and trim edges, secure each wrap in a circle with double stick tape and then set your little "lantern" over a tealight in glass. (or if you are like me and have little hands around that won't leave them alone, get those little battery votives and drop one in the middle.) You can download the spider web sheet by clicking HERE. They are my favorite Halloween decoration at the moment! I have big plans for the wall above them, stay tuned...
If you use these, I have one tip, I put the printed side on the inside of mine, so it's hard to see the spider and web in daylight, but when it gets dark they look really cool, and you can see the design inside when you look down at them.

I tried to download, but I got a message that said "The file link that you requested is not valid." Did I do something wrong?

Sorry if you have tried to download it and it's not there, I think the link expired or something, my computer died and I'm trying to recover my files so when I get them I will fix the link! Hopefully that will be within the next couple of days! Thanks for your patience!
