Dollar Store Hurricane Vase


What can you make out of these 2 things? A hurricane vase!

All you need is 1 glass candlestick and 1 vase from Dollar Tree.

Use a gluegun to glue the candlestick onto the vase, everyone says you should use a stronger glue but I didn't feel like buying a special kind of glue and a glue gun worked just fine!

I love this because you can change whats inside the vase for each season. Here's what I have on my table for Halloween:
Everything in/on the vase came from the dollar store, except for the candycorn.
- Tall Jesus Candle (The Sticker comes off really easy)
- Thick Satin Orange Ribbon
- Thinner Yellow Ribbon
(Dollar Tree sells really nice ribbon now, in all different colors!)

I just glued the yellow ribbon onto the orange with a gluestick.

This was about $6 to make. I love dollar store crafts!

Very cool, I like the fact that you just use what's in your house instead of going out to buy stuff, I do the same thing!

Do you have a tutorial for the quilted square mat. It's so cute.
