Candlestick holder

We were getting ready for our annual Shop Hop last week and I needed a large candlestick holder to finish the display for our pumpkin table topper.  I've had this idea in mind for a while that I decided to give a try.  It was a fun project and I am very happy with the results.

All you need is a plate, a sundae cup, glue and spray paint.  (Make sure the Sundae cup has a flat edge, not fluted so you can get a good bond when it is glued to the plate.)

Simply center the Sundae cup on the back of the plate.  Draw around the cup with a permanent marker.  Run a bead of glue (we used goop craft glue) just inside the mark and another around the rim of the Sundae cup.  Allow the glue to set for a minute or two and then press the plate and sundae cup together.  Allow to set for 24 hours and spray paint. 

Easy, and fun! 

We did a bunch of kits for the table topper.  They sold out the first day of shop hop.  We will be doing more kits so if you would like one give us a call (801-465-9133).  It makes the candles look really nice - don't you think?

If you would like to win a pumpkin topper kit send us your comments.  We'll pick a winner sometime next week. 

You still have a day and a half to join us for shop hop.   Come see us.
