do you want it to come off later?

If not, I’d use lacquer (you can get this at any craft supply store)

I would use a repositionable spray mount. You can get it at michaels, it looks like a bottle of hairspray.

spray mount (use it outside!!)

or make the paper sized so that it fits snug when wrapped around and use tape on the inside of the seam…

What a cute idea! Votive holders w/ candy in them!

On a side note: I’ve never worked with spray mount. So this might be a silly question, but if its like hairspray… is it flammable?

If you go the "snug paper tape the seam" route (which I’ve done successfully), the best adhesive tape to use is a product called Tacky Tape.  It’s double sided tape (you can get it at any craft store or even Walmart), and the roll looks red.  It comes in a couple different widths and it’s super powerful – holds like a charm.

It’s probably flamable if you are spraying it and trying to light it on fire – but if you sprayed the paper and then attached it to a glass votive I highly doubt you would have any issues.  You could always laquor everything in the end to get a hard seal.  Spray mount is just really easy to apply, and you don’t get any ‘wet marks’ like other glues –
