Here are the original hurricanes from WS. $58-78 EACH. Now, doesn't $6-$24 for a set of 3 sound like such a bargain!?
Making them is super easy, here is how we did it:
1. Get to the dollar store or Hob Lob and get your parts. At the DS we purchased 3 candlesticks in the same size and 3 of the same size clear vase. You can also pick up the candles Melissa shows in her tutorial. Cost: $1 each piece. At Hob Lob, we prchased 3 candle sticks of varying heights and 3 vases of the same size. Cost: $21 @ 50% off...so $42 if you wait til next week....still not a bad deal for a set of three. You will also need a tube of E6000, our favorite glue.
2. Peel off the tags. Helpful hint, hand sanitizer will take off all that nasty sticky stuff in a flash!
3. Read the directions on the E6000 and apply the glue carefully to the edge of the candle stick (hint, be sure your candle stick parts that are going to be inaccessible are CLEAN and free of fingerprints...you don't want those under there for all eternity!)
4. Carefully place the base on the center of the bottom of the vase. You can scootch it around a little if needed and wipe off the excess glue.
5. Let them dry, so pretty!
6. Have fun decorating....
MONOGRAMMED! We used an etched glass vinyl available at M&M
