I got these little square bowls on clearance for $2 at Target, and I always pick up cool candlesticks for cheap when I find them at the thrift store. So this dish cost me $3, plus the cost of paint.

unless you have a really good exacto knife
and lots of patience.
I have neither.
let the paint dry for a good 1o minutes
and then use your exacto knife
to score the paint around each letter

I don't have a picture of this because I didn't do it,

my letters are real wonky because when I took the
contact paper off it peeled off most of my letters, too.
So I had to fill in with a toothpick and paint.
Learn from my mistakes, and all is well.
Now glue your dish onto the candlestick using Liquid Nails.
