Beach Inspired Hurricane Candle Holder

If you love coastal decor or you want to create a romantic mood this is the way to do it easily.  I made this beach-inspired hurricane candle holder with items I already had on hand including a vase from the Dollar Store.

Beach inspired decor is still trending but it can be expensive.  I have seen sea grass accents on hurricane candle holders and really liked the look so decided to try to recreate that same look for less. You only need a few things to make your own.

Glass Vase

Craft rope




Crystals (optional)

Starfish (optional)

Hot glue gun

I started by washing my vase well and making sure there was no residue so that the hot glue would stick.  You can wipe your glass vase with a cotton ball dipped in alcohol just to be sure your have a clean surface to work with.Hurricane Candle Holder one

Start at the bottom side of the vase and apply hot glue a little bit at a time attaching the rope to the vase as you go along.  Wrap it up as high (or low) as you prefer.

Add the sand and insert a taper candle or pillar candle in the center pushing down to make sure it is secure.

Place seashells around the candle.

Add crystals to the rim of your Hurricane Candle Holder for some extra glamour.
