I blog over at Ninth Street Notions. I write about the usual things: fun craft projects, easy sewing tutorials, and delicious recipes. Be sure and visit me on the blog, Facebook, or Twitter if you like what you see!


I have a love affair with the dollar store in my town. I could literally spend hours there. Which is weird, because I absolutely hate shopping for clothes or shoes. Give me five bucks and a dollar store, though, and I’m going to go wild!

This project is extremely easy. It’s cheap. (Obviously.) And it looks fabulous. Gives you that Anthro/PB look for under five dollars. Who doesn’t love that?


Gather your materials. I found two tall candle holders and two hurricane holders at my dollar store. You also need a tube of E-6000, which is easy to find at craft stores.

First, peel off your labels. I was delightfully surprised to find my hurricanes were made in the USA. Normally I call my dollar store finds “cheap Chinese junk.” Remember, though, I love all of my finds, no matter where they’re made. If you have trouble getting the adhesive off, just use a little olive oil.


I like to put a layer of newspaper down on my surface. Fortunately the dollar store also provided that! Next, place a thin layer of glue on the rim of your tall candle holder. Wait two-ten minutes.


Carefully center the bottom of the hurricane on top of the tall candle holder and press gently.


That’s all there is to it. It will take 24-72 hours for the glue to fully cure.


I popped a couple of candles I also found at the dollar store in mine for the time being, but these are fabulous for holding all sorts of little bits and bobbles. I can’t wait to use these in my decorating.


~ I love these and thanks for the great tutorial.
