Don't like how your first one looks? ('Cause at that point you were still a fake candle making noob.) Well it's hot glue! Just peel it off and start again.
When your tubes are fully dried, string them onto a piece of string, tie a BIG KNOT in the bottom, hold the top of the string, and spray paint them your favorite color. I used old speaker wire. 🙂
I went with basic gloss white (since candles are glossy, aren't they?), but I think Heirloom White would look good. If you want your candle to look old, rub some watered down brown paint on it to distress a bit.
Or use black with a white chandelier, that would look sooo cool! In fact I'm making a mental note to try it... 😉
