DIY rustic hurricane vase

When I was putting together my recent post about updates in the basement, I came across this little project that I had totally forgotten about.

Back before we had even started finishing the basement, I had snagged these simple glass cylinders on mega-clearance at Pier 1, convinced that I would/could somehow use them once it was finished.

Fast forward to after the basement was finished….. and, nope.

Just wasn’t working for me.

Unadorned, the cylinders were reading just too contemporary for a casual, relaxed space.

I played with other things to fill them with, but nothing was working out.

Until I made a trip to Target and it hit me:

I was admiring these hurricanes from the Nate Berkus collection and thought “I could totally do this myself.  I just need a plain glass hurric…wait a minute!!!!!”

Thanks Nate Berkus!

So once I got home, I snagged some jute rope that I knew I had buried somewhere in the basement and got to wrappin’.

I added some candles that I already had, and 10 minutes later, I had a rustic, textured set of hurricanes that worked perfectly in the space!DIY rustic hurricane vase
