    I'm confused, is the glitter going inside the hurricane or outside? If inside, does that present a fire hazard?

    I found the hurrican lanterns at my local Hobby Lobby and I also used my etching fluid and they turned out awsome

    Still looking for the hurricane shades- I found the cylinder shapes at the craft stores but they have solid bottoms and I would think it's hard to get in there and clean out the melted wax without ruining the design or breaking?

    Have you tried AC Moore or Michael's for the straight glass cylinder hurricanes?

    Where can I find the straight glass cylinder hurricane?? I've tried everywhere.

    I would like to know if the glitter glue melts from the candles when you light them.

    Do the hurricanes and wineglases etc. have to be tempered first? Do you do this with hot water? Linus

    To save or eliminate the need for a cake stand why not place a votive candle in a long stemmed wine glass or brandy balloon and decorate accordingly.

    I completed this craft project this year. It is easy to do and beautiful as well. I have had so many compliments. Attention Turner - You can use artificial cotton snow or I used plastic crystal cubes-all from the craft store. I would do this project again.
