Make your own candle holder holder

Even if the writer for Yahoo! Makers managed to spell Smoky Mountain correctly, this brief excerpt would be problematic:

candlestick holders diy

Why did she use the adverb cheaply? It apparently modifies available, but have you ever heard of anything that was “cheaply available,” and not merely cheap?

But the worst mistake is the terminology she used to describe this DIY project. She calls the objects “candlestick holders,” but candlesticks are candle holders. So, you’d be making holders for candle holders. She’s obviously confused a candle with a candlestick.
