    The beaded garland you used, was that placed on the inside of the hurricane or the outside?

      Looks like it's in the space between the hurricane and the glass.

    No matter what I do my garland sinks to the bottom of the vase. What am I doing wrong? I have 1 strand of 16ft., should I be filling it with 2 strands?

      Try adding about 12 inches of floral wire, or any wire really, to one end of your garland. ..assuming yours isn't wired already. Then wire the garland around the top of your candle and wind a little tightly so it won't slip. Then arrange the rest of the garland around your votive and place in the vase. This worked for me.

    I, too, would like to know a good glass adhesive. I made some of these a couple

    or years ago using superglue and they didn't stick well or even stay centered.

      E6000 used to be my go to adhesive, but a friend of mine turned me on to Shoe Goo. It works faster than E6000 and is a lot thicker. You can find it at Walmart in the shoe department with the shoe polish. It's in a red tube.
