To add textural appeal and color to clear glass hurricanes, update them with tree cuttings, ribbon and spray adhesive. To do this, gather several branches together, thinning them out until nearly flat. Next, cut the ends of the branches to size so they’re all relatively even in height and width. Add spray adhesive to the exterior of the glass hurricane, then position each branch in place. Once the adhesive takes hold, add an extra layer of visual interest on top of the tree cuttings with ribbon.
Candles, and plants offer multiple benifts as accessories to a room. Candles always add a feeling of brightness, warmth and color, especially if they are placed in colorful holders, or stained glass that reflects the colors. With plants and other organic natural materials, they also add color or become a design element, but even more so, they can really soften an area that is surrounded by hard cold materials such as wood, stone or granite. All accessories in the Park family home were provided by Ikea for a special promotional episode of HGTV's Cousins on Call.
