Ready to make your own? Here is what you'll need:
-candlestick (you can also use a sundae dish, a drinking glass, a little vase... basically anything with a sturdy base and a flat top)
-epoxy glue (I used E-6000)
-a few heavy books
Just as a side note, I picked up both this large plate ($3.50) and the candle holder ($1.50) at my local thrift store. When I got home I saw that the plate was actually a Kim Parker Chickory Hymn buffet plate that I found selling online for a whooping $24.99! Pretty sweet deal if I do say so myself.
Case in point...
