What I bought: a candlestick, a pack of 2 small candlesticks, and 2 plates.
And a feather duster. That's not part of the necessary materials, but my son found it and we couldn't leave it there. Look at it:
I digress. I just hot glued the bigger solid pink plate onto the tall candlestick. Then hot glued the small candlesticks together. Then glue them onto the solid pink plate, and topped it off with the polka dotted plate. I used hot glue because that's all I had for a super quick thing like this, but it will probably come apart eventually. I would suggest E-5000 or something like that.
Note: after the party, everything came apart. The hot glue was not a good long term solution. I am going to re-glue with the E-5000.
