It's the most wonderful time of the year and I love decorating for Christmas. I especially love adding a touch of romance and elegance by decorating with hurricanes and candles.
Hurricane candle holder are an elegant way to decorate your home with candles and add warmth to your home for the Holidays. Not only are they beautiful, they are popular decor pieces used by professional decorators.
I'm sure you have seen beautiful Hurricane candle displays in magazines or pinterest so today I am sharing an inexpensive way to make your own hurricane.
I made this one for $2.00 and wanted to share it with you.
How to Make a Hurricane Candle Holder
- glass taper candle holder
- glass vase
- any type of glue that will bond to glass
Squeeze some glue around the top edge of the candle holder and set the glass vase on top of the glass candle holder. Let it sit for about 10 minutes to allow the 2 to bond.
Glass vases come in many shapes and sizes that can be used. You can find these items at any discount or dollar store.
You can also use a gold or silver candle holder instead of a glass candle holder which will add even more elegance.
Grouping several home made hurricanes of different heights and shapes is a great way to add visual interest to a beautiful table centerpiece.
To get the professional look, simply add faux snow, sugar or epsom salt inside the glass vase to give the look of snow.
Then add your candle. You can also add small Christmas decorations, ornaments, or berries to make it more decorative.
Place your hurricane on a tray or charger, add faux snow, Christmas floral picks, ornaments, jingle bells, etc around the hurricane for the festive look you are trying to achieve.
This year when you start decorating your home, try making these beautiful and inexpensive glass hurricanes that will add a touch of elegance to your home. Display them on your mantle, create a grouping as your table centerpiece, or use alone on your coffee table. However you choose to use them, hurricane candle holders are an easy and cheap way to deck your the halls this Christmas season.
