Loving Dollar Tree! PIP

So..... I was looking to get some hurricane candle holders for my centerpieces.  Even Sav-on-Crafts was more than I wanted to pay for each.  Along comes Dollar Tree!  For a mere 2 bucks, I turned a taper holder and a small curved vase into my candle holder.  I plan to put a short taper in each one with some colored marbles at the bottom to hold the candle in place!  Sit it all on a little mirror (also from Dollar Tree) and scatter some wedding bell confetti and I have a simple, yet elegant centerpiece for less than $5!!  I will post more pics when the whole mock up is completed!

Here is what I have so far (before and after.....)

    Honey I am getting mine from there as well. I hope everyone knows they have a website now! You can order several things in bulk from the website! Favors came in at about $1.50 a guest and are unique thanks to DT
