Shortest.. Post.. Ever. I feel silly even making this into a tutorial. I just posted my Pottery Barn Mercury Glass Pumpkin KnockOff, and I guess I could have combined the two into one post, but this little guy deserves love all its own. Consider this to be a “PS” to the previous post.
Pottery Barn sells a Double Wall Hurricane. It’s pretty sweet. Like the song. “Here I am… bow-now, bow-now-now. Rock you like a hurricaaane. Come on, comeoncomeon!”
Pretty sweet. But dang, pricey at $50. So I took an old Pier 1 hurricane I had at home and inserted a glass cylinder I found at Dollar Tree for… err, a dollar. (PS. Dollar Tree? Oh man. I wrongly assumed that the store was only filled with toys laden with lead paint and ozone-diminishing toothpaste. They’ve got some gems there. They do.)
So, I stuck the cylinder in the hurricane, added a pillar candle, some cinnamon sticks, and branches. And, voila.
I’m a little concerned that the cinnamon sticks look like a) pretzels, b) small cigars, or c) joints. I don’t know. I don’t smoke pot. I leave that entirely up to those high schoolers that ride their bicycles through the Dunkin Donuts drive-thru. And 1/3 of the population of Rhode Island.
But here, together with its PB knockoff siblings.
They’re buds. Just like you and me. Minus spray paint fumes… maybe.
