Christmas Hurricanes

What do you get when you take one of these-

and put it in one of these-

put it on top of one of these-

and then add a sprinkle of this ?


THIS....



There are several of these all around blogland. I know I saw them here and here. This is my version.

Vase- Dollar Tree $1
Candle- Dollar Tree $1
Candle Base- Walmart $2
Holly- Free from my frontyard

Most of the other hurricanes like this I have seen had a candlestick base also from the Dollar Tree. I really wanted a softer line and for them to be a little shorter. I found these at Walmart and even though they were twice the amount, it is perfect!! Because of the sturdy wide base, I didn't have to glue them together, either. For only $4 each, I still think they are a great deal!!

I'm linking to Transformation Thursday (barely made it!), Frugal Friday , and It's So Very Cheri.

I love those wider bases. I don't like the Dollar Tree candle stick bases either! And I love the hurricane in the middle! Gorgeous!

I love them. I have actually thought about doing some in a totally different theme than anything I have seen yet but just haven't been back to buy the stuff. Yours are still very reasonable.
Thanks for posting to the party.

Thanks for the comments about my kitchen, I am going to do a post about the remodel of the kitchen after the first of the year, so check back. It took blood sweat and tears, but was well worth it. I hope you have a MERRY CHRISTMAS.
