DIY Aromatherapy Hurricane Vases

My bedroom needs to be an oasis, in fact, I'm decorating our master to conjure the feeling of being in my favorite place. Its theme decorating in the best way possible- not tacky but more invoking the spirit of a place that makes us feel sublimely relaxed and happy {more on that later when I can reveal the whole thing}.

You have to utilize all five senses when trying to recreate a special place. I have a heightened sense of smell, always have, so one of the first elements that I wanted to bring to our room was the smell of wafting lavender. An aromatherapy session ensued in the creation of our hurricane vases.

Here's what you'll need:
1) Candles, I used fenomen candles {they were the tallest I could find} from Ikea
2) Stick-Um to help the candles stay in place
3) Dried lavender, I ordered 1 lbs online from here
4) Tall cylindrical hurricane vases from Michaels

And here's how they turned out {cue happy dance}. I love smelling them every time I walk by and the natural dusky purple hue they lend to the space is just what I was looking for.
