The main supplies needed can be found in the back of your cupboards or at the dollar store. You will need a glass vase and a glass candlestick. I used clear glass for mine, but you could use colored glass if you prefer. The only other material is a good adhesive glue that will work on glass. I used E-6000 glue that can be found at most craft stores.
This vase was purchased from a garage sale and the candlestick from the dollar store. Total cost for the taller vase - $2.00.
This vase came from my kitchen cupboards. It once held flowers from the florist. You probably have at least one of these in your cabinets. I know, you were not sure what you would do with it but you could not toss it out.
This candlestick is a medium height. You can use a taller one just make sure that the size of the vase on top does not become top heavy.
Here are the steps to create your vase:
- Wash your vase and candlestick with warm soapy water
- Dry completely
- In a well ventilated area spread glue on the two pieces according to your glue package directions.
- Put the pieces together.
- Let the glue dry completely before you move your new vase.
