I'm a sucker for apothecaries and hurricane vases because there are so versatile! Fill em up with different things as the seasons change and on you go.
I had seen some apothecaries over at Dollar Store Crafts. See theirs HERE.
I bought all my supplies, by driving 45 mins to the states bc I wasn't having any luck here! Dollar Tree is amazing. You lucky Americans.
We have a rockin' Dollarama, but they didn't have the stuff I needed.
Before I got going, I saw this post by Two Twenty One and laughed because we were both on the same crafting track this week.
I LOVE her use of split peas as a vase filler! LOVE!! Check it out.
She was inspired by this post over at My Blessed Life.
It's really just a domino effect of copy cat crafts.
But hey, we all do crafts for ourselves, and blog to inspire.
So please...COPY CAT this!
Here's my tutorial.
Because mine are just slightly different from the rest.
3 vases, 2 tall candlesticks, 2 short ones
I don't know WHY stores put stickers on glass that leave goop. When you don't have Goo Gone, go to another source...I tried orange. It worked to a degree, still scraped away for a good 15 mins!
I used Amazing Goop's Craft Goop.
Apply it to the candlesticks.
To get different heights, I stacked one candlestick holder on top of another
(on this one below)
Place vase on top.
dry dry dry....
Fill with pretty things.
I went with some mini faux pairs.
But then I got bored with them, so I pulled out some dollar store flower fakeys, and yanked off the heads and threw 'em on top. Worked!
Squeal!!! I love them.
Here's the financial breakdown:
3 Vases from Dollar Tree = $3
4 Candlesticks (2 were in a 2pk) from Dollar Tree= $3
2pks of pears from Dollarama = $2
Flower heads from Dollar Tree = $1
TOTAL $9 for three filled hurricane vases!!
It really doesn't get much cheaper than this friends.
Don't forget...enter the giveaway...
