I LOVE cloches!! I would have them all over my house, but do you now how expensive they are? It is not something that you can always splurge on! That is why I was so excited to see on Liz @ Savvy Season's blog a few months how to make Dollar Store Cloches. (She is Aaamazing by the way!) I love the dollar store cloches, but I wanted a few bigger ones. Here are a few that I have created......
The cloches from the dollar store turned out perfect!! It is amazing what you can do with a few inexpensive supplies. From the Dollar Tree I picked up glass candle plates, candle holders, and ceramic bird. I bought the wooden knobs at Home Depot.
For this project......this is the magic stuff! Rust-oleum Stone spray....it is fantastic!! I had no clue they sold spray that made objects look like stone. (I know, I am easily impressed!)
With the stone spray, you spray all of the items above. I let them dry overnight.
Then you will glue the plate to the candle stick and the knob to top of the glass. (I used Amazing Goop from Home Depot)
This bird went from green to stone.....I just love him!
I also found the moss at Dollar Tree......
The garden ball is from the Dollar Tree also.....
I found this large fish bowl and tarnished cake platter at the thrift store. I knew this would be perfect for a larger cloche. (The tarnished cake platter was the perfect color for my Tuscan theme)
I have had this figurine forever.....it had floated around the house for years and I knew it would be perfect for the top piece. I wanted something unique, and I knew this would the right touch.
For now, I have set this spring time cloche on my dining table.
I love how they turned out! I can't wait to make more!
Thanks for stopping by.....
