I LOVE getting home decorating ideas from other blogs! I was not blessed with a lot of creativity so blogs are a great way for me to get tons of decorating tips! Last week Melissa from 320 Syacamore did a great post on how to make these adorable hurricane candle holders like the ones from Williams Sonoma using Dollar Tree supplies!! The post she wrote is here. Since I live in a small town we don't have a lot of stores but we do have the Dollar Tree! So as soon as I read this post I ran over there to see if they had the supplies to make these and they did! I was SO happy!!
Here are the Williams Sonoma ones, they are really beautiful but they are $80!! I can't imagine spending that much on candle holders!

Here are the ones that I made using the exact supplies that Melissa outlined in her post. They were $3 each! Here they are on our dining room table. I LOVE the way they turned out and they took less than 5 minutes to make! I love crafts like that :)
I am going to make a few more sets of these for Christmas gifts! Thanks Melissa for the great idea!!
