I have made some of these in the past, and I love them! I also love a bit of buffalo check, so I figured I'd show you how easy this is!

Start off with a glass plate and some fabric.

Lay your fabric over the plate, just to make sure the fabric covers the plate.

Next, apply some Mod Podge to the bottom side of the plate.

You may want to apply to half the plate, apply the fabric, and then do the other side, because the mod podge can dry pretty fast.

Then smooth out the fabric.

While the plate is drying, grab a candle stick, and apply some twine to the top, and glue it down.

I also added some cotton string to add some interest.

I created a pattern, it looks so cute!

Once the mod podge is fully dry, cut off any extra fabric.

Then apply some E6000 to the top of candle stick and glue it to the middle of plate.

And let that dry!

    What kind of fabric is the buffalo check? It looks like rayon...

    It just so happens I’ve just decided to add buffalo check curtains to my dining room which is combined with my kitchen sort of. This would look so lovely as an accent piece. Thanks for sharing! Oh and yeah I would definitely choose a different bottom. Those candlesticks are used everywhere. I have used many different things to replace that, even an old Avon bottle...lol!

      Well my Avon bottle was 50 cents at a thrift store and I just couldn’t pass it up. I’m always looking for bases like this and there are so many cute, cheap things out there to do this with. I’ve actually used so many of those dollar tree candlestick holders that I’m just tired of them and started exploring.
