I just l-o-v-e the image on the front of the new Restoration Hardware catalog:

Gorgeous gold hurricanes filled with twinkly lights...oh most definitely yes.  The only issue?  To purchase one vase of each size and two of the shortest twinkly light strands from RH you would spend $174.  And that's before tax and shipping.  So of course I did it on the cheap and here is my version:

The best part?  They only cost $25!  Here's the breakdown:

Small hurricane: $4.19
Large hurricane: $5.99
(Both from A.C. Moore on sale for 40% off)
Rustoleum Metallic spray paint: $2.74
(From A.C. Moore using 50% off coupon)
Twinkly Lights: $12.50 for two
(From amazon...hereis the link for the ones I bought)
Total: $25.42

Want to try it yourself?  Here are some tips to help you out.  Start at the top of where your gold paint should fade out. Take several quick, even passes as you rotate your hurricane vase, making sure to keep your spray paint at least 6" away from the glass.  Continue to rotate as you work your way to the bottom of the hurricane, allowing the paint to go on slightly thicker as you go.  Allow to dry for a few minutes, then spray just the bottom couple of inches, until the paint is opaque.  You should end up with a nice faded or ombre effect.

What they look like with the lights off...still cute!
A peek inside.
Just in time to get you in the mood for Christmas decorating.

The main difference with mine is that I couldn't find amber lights for cheap on amazon, so mine are warm white.  I was willing to live with that, but you could always pick up the lights from Restoration and DIY your hurricanes; you will still save money and have that pretty amber light.

You could save even more money by purchasing hurricane vases at Dollar Tree.  Either way, let me know if you try it!
