First, let me say the I loved many of the entries!! Based on a couple entries I hope I didn't misunderstand the rules as I thought major components had to come from the Dollar Store (didn't know I could use recycled items too). Project might hae been a little different. Oh well, I am very pleased with what I came up with. Here is the first photo of my creation. Sorry for the glare from the sun.



My components were: 1 wine glass
                              1 votive holder (but use a tealight),
                              a few glass marbles
                              a few white rose petals
                              1 champagne bottle decoration.

These items cost me $5 BUT this amount did NOT go into the project ... did not use all of the marbles or petals AND the bottle decoration was free because the groom "outfit" was missing.

Also, put in my own tealight so you could see how it looks when it is lit up (next photo) ..... SIMPLE YET ELEGANT. I hope you all agree!



The only other item used was a little epoxy to hold the votive holder in place and a little hot glue to add the bottom decoration.
