Picture of Dollar Store Hurricane Lamp

So I'm seeing a trend in pedestals.  Everything looks better on a pedestal!  And at the Dollar Tree the other day I was looking at the glass hurricane lamps and candlesticks for a possible centerpiece for a friend's shower when I go a great idea!  Two great things that would look great together!

I guess this idea is not new, but I didn't know that until after I had my own brain blast.  Also, I haven't seen anyone use these in groups at varying heights.

And I could not find an instructable for it, so here it is!  Maybe it will be new for you too!

I am going to upload this to my blog {Clickable Party} as part of my "Wednesday's Party Tips".

Absolutely brilliant! i always felt those were so overpriced and never managed to break down and buy some. Now I don't have to! Thanks a million for the clever idea!

I thought "Hurricane lamp" would be something like the classic oil lamp, or some home-made thing, which burned alcohol or oil. This is pretty, though. Good job.

To me "hurricane lamp" means one of these- a metal paraffin (kerosene) lamp with the wick enclosed in a glass globe that will keep burning in wind.  I thought that was where the name "hurricane" came from- if it refers to the shape of the glass I must have been mistaken.

Anyway, these are an attractive table decoration even if they aren't something you'd take out to restart the generator on a stormy night :)

That's a good point! In my experience, it can be that too!  

Thanks for the compliment!
