DIY Metallic Dipped Taper Candles

Can I just coat, dip and cover everything in metallics?  Is that acceptable?  I’m thinking with the holidays, I can make everything just a little shiny and metallic. 
These DIY Metallic Dipped Candles take just five minutes to make. As the holidays approach I’m looking for unique hostess, teacher and neighbor gifts that I can make and give. So, if you invite me over for a party or meal, I’ll bring your a pair of this tapers. 
I bought inexpensive white taper candles at the dollar store. The using my favorite Design Master (Metallic Taupe, Brilliant Gold and Rose Gold) spray paints, I simply held the wick end of the candle and applied a very light coat of paint to the bottom 3-4 inches of the candle.  Then I placed the candle in a glass upside down to dry. I like how the spray paint gives a nice ombre-ish effect, with no harsh lines or stripes.

 With a little natural twine tied around a pair of these candles, I think they make a lovely gift.

    I did some like this for a photo shoot a while back and LOVE their look. They should definitely come with a disclaimer though that once the flame hits the paint, they should be blown out. Ours started billowing black smoke and set off our fire alarm. Gorgeous though!
