Here’s Cindy from Edith and Evelyn for another fabulous tutorial!
What do you get when you turn clear glass vases upside down, and add a glass knob? A cloche, of course!
Hi, everyone, Cindy here, from Edith & Evelyn!
Recently, I was working on another project, showcasing my collection of French statues.
I wanted to display them in different size glass cloches, but realized that I only had two and that wouldn’t be enough.
Also, while pricing them, I realized they could get a little expensive, and there wasn’t much of a variety as far as size went.
I had some clear glass vases that I had picked up at Goodwill, and I seem to always have a stash of clear glass knobs, so I just decided to create my own cloche.
Easiest. project. ever.
Just take different size, clear glass, vases and turn them upside down.
I used E6000 glue because it’s the strongest glue for glass that I’ve ever used and it dries clear.
Glue the glass knob on top of the turned upside down vase.
Let the glue dry overnight and you’re done!
You can find clear glass vases at thrift stores, flea markets, yard sales, and Michaels craft stores.
I’ve had the glass knobs for awhile, but they are an easy pick up at Hobby Lobby.
I mixed the “homemade” cloches in with the “real” ones for this project.
You’ll see the two “store bought” ones that I already had on hand, and they mix perfectly.
And I used various pieces for the bases. Ironstone plates, pedestals, and old salvaged lamp bases, that I pick up from time to time.
These DIY cloches could be used to display any of your special pieces that you wanted to showcase.
Whether it’s a batch of chocolate chip cookies or cupcakes on your kitchen counter, or displaying that special piece that means so much to you.
And the great thing is, that you could make different sizes and shapes.
Tell me, what could you use one for?
