Okay, so I have been surfing blogs for a while and checking out some parties and this idea quickly became a must for me to have.
Everyone was pairing up items to make cute cloches that made beautiful displays and my shelf was wanting one too!
So here is what I wanted…
from House of Hepworths
and this from Lemon Tree Creations
Wow! aren’t they beautiful?
I am finding my style more and more, but I believe that I am a ORB (oil rubbed bronze) girl mostly. However, I can’t help but stare at the heirloom white beauties. Maybe I will figure out how to have a few of those too.
Well for my desire to copycat these, I have my attempt below.
First find two objects at the thrift store that would work. This cheese dome and candle stick from the thrift store would work just fine for $2.50. I didn’t have enough patience for 50% off day!
Next I gathered my supplies
Then I cut the candle stick to size and shape desired.
Gorilla glue and the closest thing with weight to permanently join my candle stick and cheese dome into a cloche forever.
(The bowl is heavy, not that I think onions are LOL!)
Then some spray paint and you have this.
What do you think? Beautiful!
Thanks to the sites above for the inspiration, restless nights, and ultimately great dreams come true.
