I like pretty things.
I do not, however, spend lots of money on pretty things.
I also do not have the Crafting gene. Crafts make me twitch. It's all the mess and the perfection that's required, and the concentration/focus... as well as the personal failure you feel when you don't get the results you were hoping for.
(That's what I've heard, anyway.)
BUT! When I came across this little project, I knew that I, LO, EVEN I could do this!
Behold: the DIY hurricane, sporting a DIY monogrammed pillar candle!
(I also do not have the photography gene.)
For the Hurricane, I used the these supplies, purchased from Dollar Tree:
- glass candlestick
- tall glass vase
Now, these instructions are PRET-TY tricky, so play close attention.
- Apply super glue to the top rim of the candlestick.
- Place the vase atop the candlestick, exactly in the center. (DUH.)
- Place a small book on top, just for slight pressure, until the glue is dry.**
**Note: It would be pretty embarrassing to admit it, but if you did a little happy dance and puffed your chest out at all the craftiness which you obviously possess, it would be perfectly acceptable in the privacy of your own home.
