While I wouldn't mind stocking up on a few, I wanted to take a quick try at making my own version.
I used this French newspaper image from The Graphics Fairy.  I printed it onto clear Avery label paper.  I trimmed the image down to fit each candle and then simply peeled and sticked.  I love these labels because they have a see-through quality to them that might be hard to make out in the photos.  Here's a close-up:
Best part is once again I had everything I needed.  I'd like to do some large pillar-size ones for Halloween.  Now back to flipping through my PB catalog!
