Are you ready for a craft that is easy, pretty and inexpensive? You’re in the right place! Take a look at these Dollar Store hurricane lamps I just made. Aren’t they pretty?
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.
So for $6.00 plus the glue I already had, I’ve got three lovely Dollar Store Hurricane Lamps!
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?
