Dollar Store Simplicity

On my last trip to the dollar store I was looking for a quick way to make a candle holder.  I scored just three items to do the trick.  I think the results are simple, yet classy.  The candle even smells wonderful!
After I made this I saw a similar one on close out at Marshalls for $14 without the candle!

Here are the three items straight from the dollar store. 
Just remove the tags, run a bead of the glue around the top edge of the candle stick, put the candle holder on top, let set for 24 hrs.  Add your candle and you're done!!  Now that is what I call simple!
