What a great, inexpensive idea! Dollar store hurricane lamps! I love it when crafts are both pretty and cheap!I just love how these turned out! I’d been thinking of making these and when I saw Kathy’s version over at Creative Home Expressions, I knew I had to give them a try. I thought I’d use the larger size hurricanes, but after seeing Kathy’s results, I decided to make them with the smaller glass hurricanes and glass candlesticks from the dollar store.  On my last visit to the Dollar store,  I picked up three glass candlesticks and three glass hurricanes.

The construction of these couldn’t be any easier. I used E6000 Craft Adhesive to attach the candlestick to the hurricane glass.  You do need to let them sit for 10 minutes or so while the glue sets up.  You could probably even use hot glue to attach the candlestick base to the hurricane top. Even with the smaller hurricane glasses, they ended up being about 9 inches tall. They look absolutely perfect on my living room coffee table. Gotta love that dollar store. Simple and pretty, on the cheap.

The Dollar Store always has something worthwhile.   Have you seen my Dollar Store Fall Wreath?  It turned out great too!

What have you made from items you picked up at the dollar store?

  1. Perfect! I have a "dollar store date" with a coworker at lunch tomorrow and will look for huricanes like you showed. I actually purchased 3 of the candle holders and 3 glass plates with the intention of making cake stands. I like this idea just as much! I heard you can also use E6000 glue for these to hold well… might be a bit stronger than hot glue? Thanks for sharing

  2. I had these items in my hands this weekend and thought "do I really want to make these?" After seeing yours, I think I need to go back and get my supplies!

  3. These turned out great, Carolyn! I love how we can all put our own little twist on these things and make them our own. I love the glass piece you used to hold the candle. I actually went back to my dollar store to get more and they had none of the candlesticks! Couldn't believe it ~ I'll have to search out another dollar store now.

  4. Oh my gosh, I've been looking for something like this. I have small hurricane lamp style glasses which cost me a fortune and which only hold little candles. I thought bigger ones would be perfect for my conservatory and couldn't find them anywhere…you have totally inspired me; candle holders and Ikea chunky glasses!!! Thanks hon! xx

  5. May I just say FAB-U-LOUS! The only thing better than absolutely beautiful is cheap and beautiful! LOVE them! BTW just wanted to let you know that the closet crafter is having a Gift tag/Christmas card giveaway open 'till Friday!!!

  6. Hi – Thanks for stopping by my blog and leaving your nice comment. I love the hurricane lamps you made. I really enjoy finding pieces and parts at thrift and dollar stores and turning them into something fabulous.
    I also wanted to comment on your wonderful pictures!! That last picture looks straight out of a magazine.
    I saw your ornament wreath in an earlier post and that looks like a great project too!
    Glad you stopped by so I could find your blog.
