There are many reasons why adding candle sand to the base of your vases or hurricane lanterns is a great idea.
Often, you may find that handmade lanterns and glass vases are not completely level at their base. By using sand you can ensure a safe and level surface to position your candle. Also, any debris or excess wax will fall on the sand minimising any cleaning. Not only is sand functional, it can be used for decorative purposes and gives a finished look to your arrangement.
