Step 2:

Heat the sides of the candle with a heat gun to just before melting point— about 30 seconds or so. Attach paper to the soft wax and smooth down the paper surface with a tongue depressor. As you melt the candle keep smoothing the paper with the depressor. Wax will coat paper and adhere it to the candle shape.

Arrange candles as a centerpiece. As with all candles, keep them within sight and out of the reach of children. Trim excess paper as the candle burns down.
