First take a look at the glass hurricane we'll be making.
The glass hurricane measures 8 inches high and about 6 inches in diameter.
The leaves are made from the clear modeling film cut out with Tim Holtz's Alterations Dies: Tattered Leaves and the Mini Tattered Leaves Movers and Shapers set. I used alcohol inks in warm fall colors like Cranberry, Sunset Orange, Sunshine Yellow, Lettuce and Meadow.
Then I heated them up and shaped them how I liked. What fun this is! Then a little hot glue to get the leaves onto the glass. I tied some raffia around the middle of the vase which made an additional anchor point for the leaves.
With some natural twine, I affixed this metal charm (Making Memories) to the front raffia knot.
To finish it off, I placed a 6-inch pillar candle in the vase, then surrounded it with rocks. I think this will be a nice centerpiece for the Thanksgiving table this year.
Thanks so much for stopping by today. It always means a lot to me!
