You can get this achievement pretty easily in the level editor. The only items you'll need are three candles and two fuses. Here's the process:

Place the three candles on the ground with about a candle's length between them. The exact distance isn't terribly important, so long as there's a decent gap between neighboring candles. Select one of the candles on the end and press right on the D-pad to light it.

Place one end of a fuse near the middle of the lit candle and the other end of the fuse slightly above the next candle. Grab each of the nodes in the middle of the fuse and bring them close together - you want the fuse to be as short as possible so you'll be sure to have a candle lit at all times. Be careful not to put the end of the fuse too close to the unlit candle, otherwise the fuse will cause the candle to burn too quickly to get the achievement.

Place the second fuse between the two unlit candles in the same way.

In the end, you should have a lit candle that will light a fuse when it burns about halfway down. That fuse will quickly light another candle that will do the same thing.

Once it's all set up, press Y to start the machine and you'll nab the achievement.

Perhaps the most important part is to play around with the precise positioning of all the pieces. Press Y and see what happens; if you don't have at least one candle burning continuously for ~35 or 40 seconds, you probably just need to jiggle the positioning a little bit to make it work.
