Williams Sonoma Inspired Fall Glass Hurricanes

I've started to put out some more fall decor.  I have a small thing for candles.  They can make a space feel more intimate and romantic.

I've seen these pretty little things floating around blogland so I decided to make my own.  They are glass hurricanes from Williams Sonoma for $68 plus the glass sleeve for $16.   Don't think that is gonna happen on my budget.

I gathered my supplies:
glass vase from Dollar Tree
glass candle holder from Dollar Tree
glass enclosed candle from Dollar Tree
faux leaves from Dollar Tree
spray paint

I glued the vase and candle holder together using Gorilla Glue.  I let it dry a couple hours.

I spray painted some leaves with ORB (because that's what was in the stash).  I want to keep the colors dark and neutral to go with my current decor.  I inserted the glass enclosed candle into my hurricane.

I simply dropped a few of my painted leaves in and voila.

For now they are sitting on my entry table along with some filler balls from Target.  I put the filler on a decorative plate I already had. 

I'd say I got a better deal at $7 for both.  What do you think?

  12. Genius! And while I love WS, I also can't afford their fabulousness, so this is right up my alley. I never would have though to spray the leaves out to match a different color scheme, either! You hit all the right notes... thank you for sharing!
    Tami @ still crazy after all these years

  18. O WOW, you done good. Love the look and the price is even better. Thanks for sharing at my newbie party.

  19. I am copy-cating! Found everything but the wax candle at my local $Tree. Thanks for the tutorial.

  20. Great idea. I was at Dollar Tree last week putting the candle stick with the tall narrow pillar but put them back.... never thought about adding the third piece of the larger vase.

  23. I love these I have tried to make the hurricane candled with smaller dollar store vases bot the gorilla glue only holds for a week and then they fall apart any tips ? Also how tall are these ? They look pretty tall but I can't find tall ones at my dollar store , thank you

  24. Andrea this is gorgeous! Love it. I actually like yours better then the expensive ones.

    Thanks for stopping by my blog and becoming a follower. :)

  25. I love your version of the dollar store Hurricane Glasses. I also made some and just absolutely love them. http://justsayin-melanie.blogspot.com/2011/09/frugal-decor.html Mine are on my dining table.=)

  26. Love this! I will most certainly be making my own variation of this soon!

  27. In all seriousness I like your version better. I like the black or dark brown and white for something different and I like the shape of your glass pieces. Really well done. Thanks for linking up to Motivated Monday at Becolorful. I will be featuring you tonight.

  28. I love your fall hurricanes! I have leaves in my decor all year long and then go leaf crazy in the fall. These are great and could not be more budget friendly. Thank you so much for linking up to Savvy HomeMade Monday!

  29. Come decorate my house! I love your taste, and I have a super creative eye, I just suck at putting it all together! :)

    You did an amazing job with these!

  30. Great tutorial! this is natural and easy craft for fall. Thanks for sharring
