First things first, gather what you are going to need to complete the project. Many times I have started a project and not had enough stuff to finish it (just ask my husband) and had to put it on hold till later (I hate that).
Dinner plate & Salad Plate (The salad plate is about 3/4 the size of the dinner plate, they don't have to match but for me I wanted them to. I love hitting up second hand shops for things like this cause they are hella cheap!)
Two clear candle holders
Aleenes Platinum Bond Glass and Bead Adhesive
Loctite clear silicone sealant
Marker (I use permanent, you wont be able to see the markings when you are done and they will eventually wash off.)
Wash and dry plates (a no brainer right?)
Step 2: Using your ruler make a big X on the backside of the plate. Don't make the X willy nilly. Actually take time and measure the distance of the bottom of the plate (Mine were 7in and 5 in.) and plop your dots right in the middle (mine were at 3.5 and 2.5) Do this on both plates.
Step 3: Now that you have the plates done up with their X's Use the glass and bead adhesive and apply it to the candle holders top.
Step 4: Take the candle holder and flip that bad boy over and align it over the center of the X on one of the plates. (the glass and bead adhesive needs to set for about 24 hours according to the directions, so find a place, out of the way, to let this sit. This adhesive is worth it cause its got HOLD)
Step 5: Use the tongue depressor (craft stick) or towel to wipe around the edge of the candle holder to clean up any squeezings (Ya know the stuff that comes out as you press two things together, makes me think of a smores. LOL)
