Dollar store finds to gifts

So took a trip to the Dollar Store today and found these brass looking candlesticks

I also found these different shapes and sizes of glass containers.  I forgot to take pictures before I filled and embellished them.  Oops!

So anyway, I also got the filler from the dollar store as well and seperated it betweem the 3 glass containers.  I tied the rafia they used to seal the bag around 2 of the necks of the containers.

I spray painted the candles sticks with Rust-oleum Universal all-surface flat black paint

and they turned out like this

Then, I just glued the glass to the stems and ended up with a great birthday gift for a friend, all for under $10.  I am very pleased with how this turned out and will need to get more supplies to make for myself.
