What to do with a Cloche


I won this gorgeous cloche from Martina at Northern Nesting and ever since then, I've been trying to come up with an idea of what to display...



At Christmas, I bought a whole lot of vase fillers that were on sale at Superstore.  I jammed as many of the grapevine balls into this cloche as I could, but something was still lacking.

Then I came across teeny, tiny battery operated led light strings and I was in love.  I wound the light string around the balls and sat the cage on a square of burlap.  I tied a teensie black lace ribbon around the base of the little bird and VOILA!  I have a little night light that is perfectly lovely.


Cheers!

  11. Great idea with your cloche! It is interesting how we will have something that we really like but have no idea at the time what we really want to do with it. Then like out of the blue there is the perfect idea!! Stop by and see what I did with my cloche.

  49. You know Anne, I am cloche challenged. Maybe if I had a cute one like yours I would be inspired to make them cute. My glass cheese domes turned cloches sit empty.

    Thanks for linking up.
