[How-to Tuesday: $2 DT Hurricanes]

About a year ago, I was inspired by Leanneja over at Organize and Decorate Everything on her thrifty candle holders (view her post HERE). And so I thought to myself, "hey, I could do that!" So I did. :0)

[I first went out and bought some supplies: tall cylinder vases & candle holders from the Dollar Tree, and E6000 glue from Hobby Lobby.]

[After researching the Internet, I found that this glue works best on glass. Plus you can still use it on basically anything, except Styrofoam.]

[After putting the E6000 on the glass to adhere the candle holders to the vases, I had to wait at least 24 hours for it to dry. This is an extremely important step!]

[And voila! As you can see here, I put eggs and flowers inside and wrapping a colorful ribbon around it to decorate for my Spring Mantel. But I am sure as the seasons change, I will put an actual candle inside.]

Not bad for $2! And it was so easy to make! I'll be linking this project up to these parties! Hope to see you there! :0)
