Not the exact same, but here are three similar options (1, 2, 3) available from the dollar tree online (only $1!).

 

Your example picture has stemmed vases – those options above aren’t stemmed, but you could buy these candlesticks and apoxy them – then you’d have your stemmed vases for only about $2 each!

Here is another pic of that vase. Although the base is hidden, you can see that it must be a footed vase. The style you are looking for is a footed urn vase.  I don’t think you are going to find these for $10. A pp has already given you DIY suggestions. Have you thought of renting them from a local party rentalvendor or a florist?

@megan52088:  If you decide to go the DIY route, use E6000 glue.

@megan52088:  I agree with @julies1949 – Use E600 (available in craft stores and home improvement places like HD and Lowe’s). To do it, clean the bottom of the vase and the top of the candlestick with rubbing alcohol, let it dry (30 seconds, max), then apply a thin layer of the glue to the candlestick, and stick it on. Have it dry upside down (so the vase is upside down, candlestick on top), maybe with a book to weigh it down. It will take a long time to dry since there won’t be a lot of air circulation between the candlestick and vase, so let them sit for a few days. Should work, though, and it’d be way cheaper than buying specialty vases!
