Easy Updated Hurricane Vase - Pottery Barn Knock-Off

2 materials
9 Minutes

I see big hurricane vases all the time at the thrift store for super cheap but I am not a huge fan of the shape. I recently saw one that I really liked at Pottery Barn but it was $70! I set out to see if I could recreate this candle holder for less.

Step 1 - Find Your Vase

If you already have one laying around great! If not you can usually find them at the thrift store for cheap.

Step 2 - Get Some Vinyl Wall Base

I love how easy this vinyl wall base is to mold. It was so easy to shape it the way I wanted it.

I cut off the lip of it to create a flush piece. If you are going to do this, make sure to use a straight edge to get a nice cut. A simple razor blade cuts through this with ease.

Step 3- Paint Rubber (Optional)

I decided to spray paint it a light gray color, but you can get creative here and go with whatever color fits in with your decor :)

Step 4- Attach Rubber To Vase

I used E6000 Industrial Glue to attach it, I was afraid hot glue wouldn't work so I didn't even risk it. Make sure you do this while it is upright so that everything is level.

And that's it! This was such an easy project and I love the updated look of it.

I hope you liked this project!
