I can’t remember which Bee it was, but it’s really easy. 

I used a cardstock and wrapped it around the votive and traced around the top and bottom.  Then I cut the cardstock according to the lines I created.  I used that as a template and outside the figure on vellum and cut the vellum.  I wrapped the vellum around the votive and once I was happy with the placement, I used permanent Scotch double stick tape.  If there were any extra paper hanging over I just trimmed it with a scissor or razor blade.   (Not all votives are the small – some of my mine were "warped" within the same box, so I made my template a little larger and trimmed at the end).

As for a text, you can print on vellum and I just did trial and error on regular paper and held it up against the vellum until the names/text sat in the middle of the vellum (template) shape.

 I hope that made sense!

I wanted to do this as well, and use them as "place cards" but am concerned about the votives getting too hot for the guests to handle.  Did anyone have this problem?

We used them as placecards, but had them prearranged on the tables.  We used the seating chart at the front of the tent so guests could find their table number.
