Romantic Looking Hurricane Candle Holder

This was very easy and I LOVE the outcome!





All you need for this project is a glass hurricane, or vase wide enough to fit a votive candle in, a spool of your choice color of thread, and Mod Podge. On a piece of newspaper, I turned my vase upside down and spread a thin layer of Mod Podge on a couple inche section of the vase. I started radomly wrapping my thread around and around until it was the effect I wanted. Do the same thing for the next part until your whole vase has a layer. After you've gotten the effect and thickness of thread you want, cover another layer of Mod Podge over the entire vase smoothing out any clumps. Let it dry, then add your candle and light it!! PRETTY!!






Add your own inspiration to this project! Use a unique looking vase, or different colors of  thread, etc.!!! Have fun and enjoy:)
