Paint the back (bottom side) of the plate with mod podge.
Immediately smooth the fabric over the plate onto the mod podge with the patterned side against the plate. Press the fabric into the plate, working to smooth out any bubbles.
Let mod podge dry completely.
Using scissors, cut off the fabric that extends beyond the edge of the plate.
Paint another layer of mod podge onto the fabric. Put plate in a place where it can dry for 24 hours.
Cover the candlestick with spray paint in the color of your choice. Wait for the paint to dry before applying a second coat (if needed). Set aside candlestick to dry completely.
When both the mod podged plate and painted candlestick are dry, use a hot glue gun to attach the candlestick to the center of the bottom of the plate.
Wait for glue to dry. Once dried, your cake plate is ready to use!
