Somehow deleted Applications stack?

For some reason, I tried to drag the Applications stack onto my desktop, but when I did it disappeared! I went to the Finder and tried to drag Applications from the sidebar to the area of the dock for stacks, but my finger slipped on the mouse and I accidentally dropped it onto my desktop, where it promptly disappeared as well. Now it's gone from the sidebar in the Finder. How do I get things back to the way they were? Sorry if this is a silly problem/question, I only got my Mac a few weeks ago and I'm still adjusting!

From Finder go to the Macintosh HD item on sidebar. From there you should see the Applications folder. Drag it to Sidebar and Dock.

That is one of the less intuitive parts of Mac, when compared to Windows - destructible items - drag something out of the dock and it disappears in a puff of smoke. Boom.
