Isn’t it gorgeous? I loved it.
So, of course it was on my mind. I wish I could empty my brain sometimes, but alas, it was smashed in there along with other useful tidbits of information that I want to remember later, like did you know you’re only supposed to run cold water in your garbage disposal to make it last longer?
Anyway! Stay on track, Melissa…
ETA: if you can’t find these supplies in your dollar store for a DIY glass hurricane, try the Target dollar spot, or any craft store. You can almost always use coupons to places like Joanne’s or Michael’s and get 40% off your supplies. I was picking up some Christmas goodies at the Dollar Tree, and look what I found in the candle/glassware aisle:
DIY Glass Hurricane
First, remove the tags.
Then, take the candlestick, put some hot glue around the top rim, and place the hurricane on top of it, looking down into the hurricane vase to be sure it’s centered.
Then, take your white skinny candle (next to the saints candles in the aisle), put some hot glue on that and stick it in the hurricane. You could also skip gluing the candle, and instead nestle it into sand, beads, or some other non-flammable filler at the bottom of your DIY glass hurricane vase. Of course, if you’re using a flame-less candle you have some more options!

This is awesome, Melissa! Thanks for sharing. I definitely like your version better 🙂
Very impressive! I love when you can make something at home that rivals the pricey catalogs. Way to go!!
awesome! I love that you were able to duplicate the look for a fraction of the price!!!
for a few more $ (if someone just HAD to have the etched initials) that could be done with a little etching cream and contact paper!
I LOVE this idea! I am so NOT crafty, but this looks like something I could totally handle! Thanks for the idea!
Those are fantastic!
are you kidding me?
Those are so gorgeous! I love them!
Must head to dollar store and copy….. I LOVE this idea!
