DIY Pottery Barn Inspired Rope Wrapped Hurricanes

Pottery Barn carries a beautiful selection of home decor items that I love. But with a dollar store budget I was able to recreate their iconic coastal hurricane candleholders. Come see the materials I used and how I put them together.
This sisal twist rope can be found at your hardware store. I pre-cut the lengths so that it would cover about one third of the hurricane. Then I adhered it to the hurricane using hot glue.
Starting at the bottom of the glass, attach one end of the rope with the glue gun, then begin wrapping the rope around the hurricane, gluing it down about every quarter turn, and gluing the rope securely at the finishing end as well.
I filled two hurricanes with sand, up the top of the rope wrapping. Into one I placed a few seashells which I purchased at the dollar store. A second vase has a white pillar candle set into the sand.
In a third hurricane I placed a layer of stones at the bottom for drainage, then set in a succulent plant, adding some extra potting soil as needed.
The hurricanes look gorgeous as a trio for an event centerpiece. And head over to the blog for some hot gluing tips, and to see how I used them as decor in my home.
