A friend asked me to tell her what I used so I thought I would turn the instructions into a post. I hit the thrift store hoping to find something cute and believe it or not, I found exactly the same metal flower that I had originally used. Tomorrow I'm going to hit the corner store looking for the winning lottery ticket!
Candle Stick with a flat top
Spray paint in your desired colour
Give the plate and candle stick a coat of the spray primer followed by 2 light coats of spray paint. Remember, light hand. It's hard to get rid of drips when you're using spray paint. Let it dry for 24 hours and then give it a coat of polyurethane to seal and protect it.
Any household adhesive will work just fine for attaching the pieces together. This is the brand I own but they'll all do the job. I actually didn't attach either of mine for a couple of reasons. I like the look of the plate without the stand so this way I can occasionally chose to go without. Since space in my kitchen is at a premium I have decided that storing these plates on the wall works best until they are needed
I definitely see this on our Easter table next weekend.
