Another Use for Glass Hurricanes

This post was featured on The Dedicated House.
Thank you Katheryn.


You all know me well by now!  You know that I love to re-purpose home décor items. I may purchase something for one use, and then I have an idea. It's always those ideas that spur me to create something new. Frankly, some ideas work out better than others. :-)



I purchased these tall glass hurricanes from Pier One prior to daughter's wedding. It is amazing that I have not had a chip or such...but I packed them away very well. 

Hubby went to the garage and dug the box out of a corner of the garage. It was on the bottom of the stack...ha ha ha. 


Like I said...these are hurricanes for fat candles.  But, I decided to try some pumpkin filler for a different look. I had to dig through my tub of bits and pieces and then eventually found enough filler and leaves to "fill" the hurricanes. I put them in a line down the table...but it just did not look right. 


I regrouped the hurricanes into a square arrangement on the table. Still not the look I wanted. 



I grabbed a large mirrored tray and placed all of the hurricanes on it. Hmmm. Better.  I added some fall leaves...trying to make them look as if they just causally floated onto the tray. :-) 








The reveal! Finally!

It was a lot of work for a simple table arrangement, but sometimes that is the way it is when you are being creative. 

Don't let your creativity be stopped just because a project does not work the first time...keep trying until it speaks to you.
