It's cute, right? I pinned it so I could come up with an upcycled version....and I did. Here it is:
|I swear it's lit, but it's really hard to see in the daylight!|
This was SO easy and the only thing I bought was the fuel. Here's what you need and what to do:
...it's that easy!
Here's how it's upcyled:
1. I had this vase left over from a party that I threw years ago in my former life as a Volunteer Manager. I would have liked a taller one, but the one I had broke in my last move and you know me...use what you have! If you don't have one, you can thrift for a buck a two and they are the thick heavy ones!
2. The glass rocks I've had for at least 7 years and have used them to decorate around candles as well as in flower vases.
The fuel that I bought (at Party City) had a closed lid with a wick which made adding the rocks super easy. Just toss everything in the vase and light the wick. Easy Peasy!
Here's a pretty crappy indoor picture to show you that does actually have a flame:
