I work at Michaels (that art and craft store), and there is this stuff there called Terrifically Tacky Tape (http://www.provocraft.com/images/products/artaccentz/ter_tacky_tape.jpg) And I have used that with those little microbeads to tape onto a votive.  If you have a heat embossing tool, or a hair dryer (the embosser gets hotter than the hair dryer, but they both work good) that helps set it. You dont need to use that, but it helps make is super strong.

Or there is some glues that work on glass, and since seed beads are glass you could put some of that on it to help it hold. And it might resist the heat. Maybe Hypo Cement would work (http://www.gssupplies.com/cement.html) Or a polymer clay glue might work too, because polymer clay gets put into the oven, and well you get the idea...

Hope that helps

I love this idea.  I made a few back in the winter for my roomates.  Then I filled them with the candle wax that comes in bags, slip a wick in and you have an excellent gift.  Great color scheme on your votives.  Love it.

That is a super tutorial, and your votive came out great!  I recently started teaching myself to make French beaded wire flowers, and in the book I got, it talked about a tool to help string seed beads on wire, called a bead spinner. I tracked one down, and I must say, it is the most incredibly fun tool!  You put the beads into a little dish of a contraption that looks kind of like a spinning top. Then you put the end of the wire in the dish, spin it around and the beads literally jump onto the wire!  It's a little tricky, but once you get the hang of it, it's so fast!  I had 6 feet of beads on wire in less than an hour.
