dress up a small hurricane with a bit of burlap, lace or other material, add some greenery, small flowers, or herbs (such as cinnamon sticks) to the outer interior walls and place a small candle in the center!!
Sand Centerpiece - Light up a table with this sand-and-shell centerpiece. Use candle adhesive to secure slender tapers to the bottom of a clear glass vase. Carefully pour in a few inches of sand, then arrange shells on top. Besides refracting the candlelight for added ambience, the vase will protect the flames from breeze.
