Thanksgiving/Fall Decorations-Hurricane Vases

I love decorating for Thanksgiving, perhaps because the colors are so rich and warm, it’s not near as fussy as Christmas, and it officially welcomes us into the Holiday season!
This project is similar to my very favorite Fall Hurricane Vases, but with a bit more of a Thanksgiving twist!
Corn is a staple in Thanksgiving decor, so I decided to create a centerpiece for my coffee table that would bring the season straight to our den.  In addition, this project is very inexpensive for the look it displays!
Any vase or glass hurricane will work.  These I purchased years ago at Kirkland’s, but similar ones can be found at Target, Wal-mart, or Michael’s.
The corn kernels are inexpensive Great Value Brand and you probably need at least two bags.
See my little “helper” in the background?
These candles I use over and over for different seasonal displays in these hurricane vases.
The artificial leaves are re-purposed from an old wreath I disassembled to use on my fall mantel.  Simple jute secures the leaves to the candles.
While I arranged these vases inside my Willow House Jamestown Tray for a coffee table display, they would be great on a fall mantel, a dining table, or in your kitchen!
As always, I love seeing your projects you’ve created after seeing something here!  Be sure to send me a picture if you make a Thanksgiving display!
Have a great Wednesday!

    What are the candles sitting on? Are those candle stands?

  37. I love these ! I have been looking EVERYWHERE for these type of hurricanes and the closest I found were ones that the candle sits on the upper ledge so not quite the same 🙁 Even amazon doesn;t havre them

  38. Wanted you to know that this is being pinned like crazy! I love the hurricanes inside the Jamestown Tray. I’m always looking for clever stylings like this to show my Willow House customers. Thanks for sharing!

  39. Love this. It is simply beautiful.

  42. This is such a great idea!! I love the valentine one as well. What do you use between the corn kernels and the pillar candle though?

    • Hi! I don’t have anything in between the kernels and the candle. I put the candle in first, then poured the kernels all around it. Thanks for stopping by!

  43. Where can I find this exact 3 piece candle set ? Just the glass part and stand ?? I need it for my wedding Decor …please share thanks

    • Jessica,
      I bought these years ago at Kirklands, but I have seen even prettier, bigger ones at Michaels and Target. They still carry them. There are multiple sizes. Hope this helps! Amanda

    • Hi! Forgive the delay in responding. I bought these many years ago at Kirklands, but I have seen these in different sizes at Michael’s and Target. You could probably piece different sizes together from these places. They are actually bigger and prettier than mine:). Hope that helps. Amanda
