    Can you burn this candle? Or is there a danger that the napkin may catch fire? This is so, so pretty and I will do this either way haha! But this I must know. Thank you for sharing this lovely idea.

    What is the answer to the question about burning the candle? Is it dangerous?

  • Yvonne Yvonne on Nov 26, 2017

    Why don't you answer the question about the decopague burning instead of letting others do it?

    love this idea! I have only decoupage on the glass holder and never thought about doing it on the candle!

    DO NOT use candles as anything but decorations. Most candles will not combust BUT some will. A lot depends on how the candle burns. It's just not worth the risk.
