Hurricane Candle Holder DIY

Another craft made from my Dollar Tree haul! I made this cute little hurricane candle holder for my TV stand. I took everything off of it and it looks so bare! I have been looking for things to decorate the stand with, but nothing is calling out to me. I love hurricane lamps and primitive candles so I decided to make my own.

I used a candle holder and vase that I bought at… well, you know where! I spray painted the candle holder white. After it dried, I used Epoxy 6000 to glue them together.

While that was drying I worked on making the candle. I used battery operated taper candles and grunged them up with cinnamon, instant coffee, and Mod Podge. (The instant coffee and ground cinnamon also came from Dollar Tree.)

To make the grunginess (is that a word?) you cover the candle in Mod Podge, then roll it around in a mixture of coffee and cinnamon. There are different ways to do this out there on Pinterest, but this is easiest for me. Plus the cinnamon makes it smell good!

You let that dry and then add another layer and let it dry. Keep adding until it looks like you want it to and then finish up with a layer of Mod Podge to seal it. I only did two coats and I was happy with the way they came out.

Beware: it gets messy!!

I glued some twine around the top of the candle holder and added a tiny sunflower. I put the finished candle inside and added some moss to the bottom.

I love the way it turned out!!
