How to Make It

- Use crafts glue to adhere the dowel cap under a predrilled hole in the shelf bracket, aligning holes.
- Insert the dowel through the predrilled bracket hole and into the dowel cap, securing the bat to the bracket.
- Glue the candle cup several inches behind the bat. Let the glue dry.
