Craft Paint Brush
Plastic Bats (bag of 6 from dollar store)
Hot Glue Gun
Extra Glue Sticks

Spray paint candlesticks. It may take 3 or 4 coats to cover all the areas.

Step 2:
While candlesticks are drying, paint white stripes along the border of your picture frames.

Step 3:
After all paint has dried, apply a couple of decent sized drops of hot glue. Center the frame on your glue drops and hold in place for about 10 seconds until glue cools completely.

Step 4:
Apply generous amount of hot glue to the back of the bat, place in desired position on frame. Hold into place for about 10 seconds until the glue cools completely.

Step 5:
Clean up any glue strings that are visible and add your photo to frame!
