Paper flower branch candelabra

I give the most boring titles to my DIY projects. In my heart I want to pull an Anne Shirley and call this the "Flowers make my heart hurt of beautiful rainbow goodness" but sometimes you just gotta restrain. I created this piece for Styled Magazine's ALL FLORAL issue. Yes, florals call for all caps. Tiger, one of my favorite stores in Denmark (think dollar store but awesome) has an amazing array of colored candles and I picked some up ages ago thinking, "oh yeah, I need a whole rainbow of candles to add to my collection of stuff for my little apartment" And look, I put them to use. And of course added lots of flowers to it.
For full instructions head on over here.

Brittany, I'm dying over this project. And that you hot glued candles to sticks. I would have sat there for 5 hours trying to figure out how to attach them. Brilliant, my friend! Also, p.s. so glad for the intro (through you) to Hilda. You two make a great team!

Very pretty, but candles and paper.....? Seems a little dangerous.

sorry, i'm not sure what you're doing in step 2? is that some sort of can of metallic paint that you're putting on the branch? can't see any sort of paint on the branch in the following pictures so i'm not sure.

**step one, sorry. bah it brought me to a different page on the comment and I couldn't remember which step had the canister of mystery in it.
