Candle Holders That Hold Candles Steady While Re-Purposing Scrap Materials

Picture of Candle Holders That Hold Candles Steady While Re-Purposing Scrap Materials
Most candle holders I have obtained don't fit the candle very well. They are too wide and shallow or two thin.
One ought just be able to drop a candle in and have the candle remain straight and steady.
So I desgined a candle holder to do just that from re-purposed materials.
It will take less than 15 minutes, even if one is slow

I tried the silicone adhesive. It works, just takes a couple of hours to cure
Also tried "Instant Grap" construction adhesive. That did not work.
Epoxy always works
Clever!
Dig it.
