I've started to put out some more fall decor.  I have a small thing for candles.  They can make a space feel more intimate and romantic.

I've seen these pretty little things floating around blogland so I decided to make my own.  They are glass hurricanes from Williams Sonoma for $68 plus the glass sleeve for $16.   Don't think that is gonna happen on my budget.

I gathered my supplies:
glass vase from Dollar Tree
glass candle holder from Dollar Tree
glass enclosed candle from Dollar Tree
faux leaves from Dollar Tree
spray paint

I glued the vase and candle holder together using Gorilla Glue.  I let it dry a couple hours.

I spray painted some leaves with ORB (because that's what was in the stash).  I want to keep the colors dark and neutral to go with my current decor.  I inserted the glass enclosed candle into my hurricane.

I simply dropped a few of my painted leaves in and voila.

For now they are sitting on my entry table along with some filler balls from Target.  I put the filler on a decorative plate I already had. 

I'd say I got a better deal at $7 for both.  What do you think?
