After making one of the Cheese Dome Cloches, I quickly realized that it needed a wider base because of the weight of the glass dome on top. It is REALLY heavy glass!
I went to Michael's and bought a small wooden placque for $.99 and glued it to the base with Gorilla Glue, then spray painted it once more.
Now it is MUCH better! So don't be afraid to add a placque base to your candlestick if it isn't wide enough! A quick fix that worked just fine!
