Hello!  I hope you all are enjoying your summer.

Today I want to share with you one of my favorite items to decorate my home with.   Have you ever heard of a cloche?  It’s a French word meaning “bell” and these amazing pieces were originally used to cover outdoor plants in the cold weather.  Today you see them used more inside to cover plants or to display a fun arrangement underneath.

In a store these pieces can be pretty pricey, hard to find, and in my opinion mostly boring.  I’ve found that I can make my own using items found in a thrift store, hardware store, and the dollar store.

Here’s an assortment I’m using today.  Juice glass, vase, brass lamp pieces, votive candle holder just to name a few.

I spray painted some of the brass pieces.

I then start experimenting with a few different pieces.

Using E-6000 adhesive I glued these pieces

I like using a plate or pedestal stand underneath the cloche.

Here’s another one that started out with these pieces:

And ended up looking like this:

I love how easy and inexpensive these are and each one is so unique.

Wouldn’t these make great gifts, too.

I hope these give you some ideas to add a little extra oomph to your decor.
