If You Want A FAST Holiday Project You Can Make in Just A Few Minutes – This is IT!


I found a really cute idea at ‘Restyled Junk’ for making a Hurricane Shade Candle Holder. Hurricane shades are open at both ends and made to sit atop a base that is made for them. However, the way you will be shown to make this craft is that the shade will simply set over the top of a votive candle so no base is required.

I love the simplicity of this project and it makes a beautiful holiday decoration for your home decor. These also make wonderful gifts for friends and family. You can even paint on a Santa face or an elf, or even a rudolph face with a big red nose to have a set of different candle holders.

This is a quick and easy craft project you can complete in just a few minutes of time.
