How to make your own hurricane lamps

I know, I know! A lot of bloggers have done this all ready, but I had to jump on the DIY train. It's so easy, affordable and they look great!

I bought two tall glass cylinders and two candlestick holders at the dollar tree. I picked out three Christmas  balls I liked to stick in each one.

I used super glue to fasten the candlestick holders to the bottom of the cylinders. (Yes, I did glue my fingers together...again.) I dropped my lovely Christmas balls in and ta-da!

Total cost? $4 each! Cheap and you can use these all year. I actually plan to make a couple of more, I was so happy with how they turned out!

  4. Perfect practice for my "trailer park" wine glasses (candle stick on bottom of a canning jar). Does this mean you are making me some for Christmas?????
