Use melted wax to secure the candles and save some tacks.

Where is the logic??? You could tack the candles to the wall, yu didn't say their size (birthday candles). If they were too big, it would knock the box down. You could wax the candles to the wall.

I'm sorry, but this is one of the stupidest I've ever seen. I'm sorry, but you could've done WAY better.

My solution was a bit like Gizzer's except I would put the thumb tacks into the wall to support the candles, melt wax over them to make a platform and to make the candles stick to the platform. The candles might have been too heavy for the matchbox to hold up.
