Dollar Tree Hurricane Vases

Lately I've seen lots of beautiful hurricane vases made from inexpensive glass vases and candle holders. Here are some pretty ones made from vases purchased for $3 at Walmart. These beautiful hurricane vases were made out of vases from the Dollar Tree. These varying height hurricane vases were, too!

So finally decided to spend a little more of my birthday fun money to purchase the supplies to make my own. (It's about time I spent some more since I'm due for another birthday in two months!)

Here's what I used:
2 tall glass candlestick holders = $2
2 short glass candlestick holders = $1
3 different sized glass vases = $3
1 frosted glass vase that I had at home (I couldn't let that lone short candlestick holder be left out) = $0
1 small tube of super glue that I had at home (hoping it works) = $0

I simply removed the price stickers, covered the top rim of the candle holders with super glue, centered them on the bottom of the vases and pressed the two pieces together. Then I weighed them down for a little while with some books. I made sure they were far enough from each other so if one fell over it wouldn't cause a domino effect.

Here's our new hurricane-style vase along with some friends. I decided to get them in different shapes and sizes because I'm a little eclectic and I love groups of three. The little frosted odd ball will find a home in the bathroom.



The kids and I will be collecting some fall decor on our walk that we'll use to fill these pretties. I think I might pull out some fall-colored ribbons as well.
What do you think? What would you fill these with for fall?

Acorns, leaves, mini pine cones, cinnamon sticks, river rock, candles, cranberries...oh the possibilities are endless!

I made some of those hurricane glasses last week. Love the variation of yours.
