Hurricane Candle – Hurricane lamps were historically burning oil lamps with tall glass fireplaces to protect the flame burn. Today, hurricane lamps describe a wide range of tall, decorative glass cylinders that hold candles. Fireplaces should still be higher than the candle to protect the flame. Hurricane lamps make elegant centerpieces at a table or for elegant occasions, such as weddings. Create your centerpiece by installing flowers and vegetation around the hurricane lamp.
Remember to use thick candles that will burn your entire event or meal and buy candles that are shorter than your hurricane candle. Cut floral foam, green or brown foam used in floral arrangements and available at craft stores or florists – in a circle several inches wider than the diameter of the hurricane lamp and 2 inches high. Cut a circle of the foam, leaving a 1-inch edge, to create a ring. Loosen the foam ring in a bucket of water if you use fresh flowers in your centerpiece.
Cut flower and green buds from their flowers. Leave several inches of stem. Transport the centerpiece to its final destination, carefully support the tray. Place the hurricane candle in the center of the ring and place the candle in the lamp. Add more greenery or flowers if you can see the plastic tray between the foam ring and the hurricane lamp.Tags :hurricane candle glass
