I loved the green and black so I knew I wasn't going to paint the plate, but the candle holder definitely needed paint. Flat black to be exact.......
With a pencil, I traced around the candle holder on the bottom of the plate.
I eyeballed the center, but a more perfectionist type might want to measure.
I put a thin bead of silicone adhesive around my pencil mark.
Less is more when it comes to this kind of glue.....learn from my error here, folks. :)
