Step One:  Spray paint your candlestick and round wood plaque.  You should also go ahead and paint and glitter your chipboard letter on the front and back.

Step Two:  Once dry, flip over the wooden circle and insert screw eye about 1/2 inch away from edge.

Step Three:  Affix the candlestick to the bottom of the wood circle in the center with E-6000 glue.  I put a can on mine to make sure there was a tight grip while it dried.  I recommend following the package directions and letting it dry overnight.

Step Four:  Now you will punch a hole in the letter and tie it to the screw eye that is hanging on the underside .

    What a creative idea, I love it! I make a lot of cupcakes for parties, but I’ve never thought to make personalized individual stands. That adds such a cute touch!! I’d love for you to share this idea on my Sweet Tooth Tuesdays blog link party. It’s still going on this week, and my readers would love this idea!
