    I made this, but used just one vase on each, attached lower on the wood. I used E6000 glue and I attached picture hanger hardware with screws. I distressed the wood by using lighter chalk paint and a sponge so that it would complement a wall hanging I already have. Instead of candles I used eucalyptus branches and some smaller flowers I had. Sorry, the picture is a bit dark.
