Here’s our Glass Cloche Update – In a previous post, I thought I had come up with a wonderful idea on how to create an inexpensive glass cloche. I was, in fact, late to the dance again. Others had already used my wonderful, magnificent idea. But still, I promised pictures so here is how we used the anniversary clock glass as a cloche.
Each of us Hubbard ladies were tasked with creating a vignette. The only rule was that you had to use items we already had on hand, anything you could find. So here we go!
Raechel was first. She used a vintage tray she had in her room as the base.
To make the vignette she added a vintage book with a jadite Avon powder jar in the small wire cloche we did here, a vintage perfume bottle, a cactus in a tea cup and a bud vase with roses.
Inside the cloche she used sheet music and book pages tied with twine, moss, and a vintage cream jar with an old rusty spring. Here’s a close up.
Next up was Madison. She used a silver plated tray as her base.
She decided she would use her rock collection which she arranged around the tray with some larger pieces inside the cloche. Here’s another view.
Elle was next. She used a vintage book as the base for the cloche with a grouping of other items around it.
She chose to use an aloe plant in a teacup and a vintage ink tray for her grouping. Inside the glass cloche she used black glass votive holder, some old perfume bottles, moss, and a couple of book pages. She burned the edge of one of the pages to add interest. Here’s a close up of her cloche.
The other ladies had done such a great job so I chose to do a couple of really simple ones to show that you can be as simple or complicated as you want.
The base is a creamy ceramic tray on a silver tray. This is just a small urn with a vine ball on top. It could be used with other items or by itself. Maybe on a mantle or bookcase.
The next one I did was a candlestick wrapped in an old rusty spring which I grouped with an old glass wire insulator and a wooden mortar and pestle. Might be cute on a shelf in the kitchen.
So hopefully you have been a little inspired or at least entertained. A glass cloche is a great way to add your own special touch to any room. The possibilities are quite endless. Let us know how you decorate your cloches.
