Secure Rose to Ceiling

Attach wood screws through the holes in the rose and into the joists. Do not over-tighten them, or the rose may crack.

Fill and Sand Holes

Use adhesive or filler to fill the attachment holes. Fill around the edge of the rose, and smooth with a damp sponge. Once filler is dried, sand the filling holes and around the edge of the rose if necessary to achieve a smooth, even finish.
