Choose Appropriately-Sized Gears

In order for the gear votive holder to proportionately align with the candles it holds, you must heed proper size and scale. Stick with gears between 2-1/2 inches and 6-1/2 inches in diameter. Because the gears will be layered with a pyramid effect, using several gears differing between 1/4 inch and 1/2 inch in diameter will result in a balanced, stacked look.
