Here is a homemade hurricane candle lamp.

Approximate Time: 45 minutes



  1. First of all spray paint all pieces and let dry.
  2. Glue the clay pot to the plate.
  3. Then glue the butter tub, and then the saucer.
  4. You can decorate as you like. I painted mine black, but you can paint and decorate any way you like. For instance you could paint white and paint or stencil on Christmas themes or hearts for Valentines Day.

sorry i didnt get back sooner i have been feeling under the weather lately. i should have been more specific. the plate is right side up. the clay pot is upside down, the bowl is right side up.the bowl in this picture is a bowl you eat out of. the saucer is right side up. the butter bowl is a country crock butter bowl without the lid. you can go to the thrift store and get the plates and the bowls use the bowls instead of the butter bowls. the bowls are the kind you eat out of.

If you have teacups you want to display, maybe mismatched ones you don't want to get rid of, try this. Put a votive candle in them and place them on a stack of books on a bookshelf or an end table. There are many ways to decorate with them. A friend of mine does this and it looks very cute.

I used an old spice bottle for this cute little decoration. Wash bottle well and dry. Put a dab of hot glue in bottom. Add fiberfill.

For homemade candle holders where the base isn't too large, just epoxy an upholstery tack upside down on the top and you have a place to secure your candle.

Start with a 3x3 inch square block of wood, about 1-2 inches deep. Paint it out with light (off-white, cream, eggshell, etc.) colored craft paint. If you have the tools, drill a 2 inch diameter circle or the diameter of a pillar candle you have on hand.

For quick, easy mood lighting indoors or outdoors, wrap old sturdy glassware with Sushi bamboo mats, tie with raffia, and insert tea candles.

I am making wooden candle pedestals. I am staining them and gluing words on them. But my glue shows through the paper that the words are written on. What can I use to attach them? Could I use the last coat of stain like a glue and stick the papers on right before it dries? Thanks in advance.

Use Mod Podge you can get it in the craft area. You get in the craft area near glues:) works great:) and it doesn't bubble as you Decoupage over the paper:0 wish you luck
