Pottery Barn Knock of Pedestal Hurricane Vase

My version of their $49 vase... total cost $2 plus glue.

The Pottery Barn's Vase.

My vase.

Dollar Tree Vases with a fluted top, and candle stick holders. Yup, entire project for three had a total cost of $6 plus glue.
I used Gorilla Glue, but it "foams" up, so next time I would use that E5000 or E6000 glue. Plus, my glue was just about out... and so I cut the container open, and glue was EVEryWheRE!!! what a mess... don't do that, clean up took forever using Bar Keepers Friend scrub. Wow, still little foam marks on my counter! Too funny!
That's pretty EASY PEASY... glue the candlestick holder to the bottom of the vase... I turned them upside down for pressure. Worked like a charm! Filled them with fall colors. LOVE it!

I like yours better than the PB one-I like the straighter sides the Dollar Tree vase has.

Thanks for sharing!
