My Favorite Decorating Hack | Glass Hurricanes 5 Ways
If you caught my Friday Favs | Vol 7, you may remember me saying I love the idea of using glass hurricanes because I have a lot of them. True story. Guys, I have 15 glass hurricanes (not all the same)! See, I wasn’t kidding. So today I am going to show you how to use a glass hurricane in 5 different ways! Invest once, use many times my friends!

Several of the hurricanes in my collection originally came from our wedding where I used them for our sweets buffet.
I knew I would reuse them after the wedding, and I wasn’t wrong. So that accounts for 4 of them 🙂 I am not a complete hoarder here, just a little. But seriously, they are so versatile and can be used over and over for new looks.
1. Candle and Rocks
Even though this is one of the simplest applications, it is definitely one of my favorites. I typically use a few of these on the patio in the summer, but it could definitely be used inside as well. We always have a large bag of pea gravel hanging around for our fire pit area, so I use those, but you could use craft rocks too. And white pillar candles are a staple in my decor arsenal so I always have a few on hand.

2. Sand and Agate
I have been a rock lover my whole life, I even collected them as a kid. So it should come as no surprise that I have an agate, or a geode as others call them. They are just so beautiful! I see them all the time at HomeGoods and it takes everything I have not to buy ALL of them! For this hurricane, I filled the bottom with gray craft sand and added an agate.

3. Candle and Moss
This is another very simple method, yet it can have high impact. It could easily be used all year and outdoors. *NOTE* I have displayed mine with a real candle because that is what I have, however, I did not burn the candle. If you intend to burn the candle, I highly recommend using a flame less candle since the moss is very flammable.

4. An Object
This one I use all the time! During the holidays I used my geometric hurricanes to display pumpkins and Christmas trees. And since spring is right around the corner, (hopefully) I thought a little pineapple action was in order. The piece of wood in the bottom is actually the base for another hurricane I have like this one, but I found mine at HomeGoods for less than $10. Sometimes hording comes in handy 😉 PS. I got the pineapple at Hobby Lobby but I can’t find it on their website. I linked to another one they have, but our store still has my pineapple as of me writing this.

5. Succulent and Rocks
I am loving this look, because let’s be honest here, I am no plant whisperer. And this is a faux succulent! You could probably do this with live succulents, but then you have to care for it and stuff and I am lazy when it comes to plants. Even though this is faux, I think it’s very realistic looking yet it still gives that modern and organic vibe.

Thanks Kate! I am all about saving money so I love coming up with new ways to re-use these. And during the holidays, the Target dollar spot is a great place to find new fillers too 🙂
