Begin by using the E6000 glue to attach one candleholder to the center of the plastic plate charger.
Next, apply the E6000 glue to the top of the candleholder, and turn the other candleholder upside down, and attach it to the top of the first one.
Apply E6000 glue to the exposed candleholder bottom, and attach the large dinner plate, centering the candleholder to the bottom of the dinner plate.
Let the glue dry completely.
Cut one string of the beaded party necklace, and using the hot glue gun, begin to attach the beaded necklace to the outside rim of the large dinner plate.
For the plate used in this example, one necklace was not quite long enough, so an additional necklace was cut to size to finish lining the plate.
Next, in a well ventilated area, spray the entire tray from top to bottom with white spray paint, and let dry completely.
Once spray paint is dry, begin painting the tray with white acrylic craft paint, making sure to get in between the beads that may have been missed with spray paint.
Once the white acrylic paint is dry, you will use the ‘dry brush’ method to add some accents with the grey acrylic paint. To do this, dab a very small amount of paint onto the brush, and then blot it off on the palette tray. You will only need a very small amount of paint on the brush.
Gently brush over the beaded edge of the top dinner plate, and around the ribbed edge of the bottom charger plate. Make several light brush strokes across the plate and charger as well. If the grey is too dark in any areas, wait until completely dry, and then go over the gray with the white acrylic paint
