The most difficult part was finding the materials. I searched antique stores, goodwill, target...until I found these four matching plates at Olde Town Antiques, and these great candle sticks at Goodwill which were brand new cast offs from Target. This Goodwill gets a lot of brand new merchandise from the Target store, so I go there first if I need anything. Why spend $40 on new dishes, if Goodwill might have an entire box set for $10 (which they did, and YAY!)
so, basically, I centered the candlesticks on the plates and affixed them with E-6000 glue. This stuff is my go-to for most projects requiring glue. It holds incredibly well, and after it dries (clear) the excess can easily be pulled off like rubber cement. I have large pieces of pottery that are still being held together with this stuff after more than ten years. It works!
