Dollar Store Knock Off

As I was reading Melissa's blog the other night I loved the glass hurricanes she made using dollar store materials.  Yesterday I made it to the dollar store and there were two candle sticks left and only 6 glass hurricanes.  There were probably 20 candles left.  Last night I glued my candle sticks to the bottom of the hurricanes with an epoxy and let them dry over night.  I love how they turned out.



Then I decided to play with some burlap scraps I had left over from the project in my previous post.  So I tied a strip to the bottom of each hurricane.



I finally decided on burlap around the hurricane itself.

It will be so fun to change these up for different seasons and holidays.

  3. I loved this idea, too and picked up my stuff at the dollar store to make two for myself. I'm thinking ahead and will put little Christmas balls in between the hurricane and the candle (provided they fit!). I like your burlap idea. They turned out very cute!
