Cloche, what's a cloche? Vignette, what's a vignette?
Those are all things I had never heard of until I started blogging. Now, "HUH"
, not only do I know what they are, I too love them. Vignettes I have been doing, as I am sure many of you have as well, FOREVER.
So onto my Spring decorating with Cloches post.
I only have a few, nice, real ones per say, and I am always on the hunt for some that are reasonable.
My friend Fresh Deb, from Refresh style,
posted about some Dollar tree cloches that she made from a wire basket.
They are super cute, and I knew I had to find some to make myself. Hey for a buck, seriously how could you go wrong?
You see I can copy cat too!
The nice thing about these little baskets is they were already white.
So no need to paint them. Deb actually painted hers with some Annie Sloan chalk paint. You can find Annie Sloan chalk paint HERE
I just removed the handle which was easy peasy to slide off.
As you can see this one fit nicely over my cobalt blue bowl. I filled it with gift wrap paper filler, some faux daisies, an egg and a cute little chickie.
The other one I used in the family room. I had the knob already as well, and just stuck it through the hole and used my nut and bolt to tighten it.
Placed it on top of a pretty ceramic base I had to my glass cloche.
As you can see I am playing in picnik as long as I can.
sad face for sure!
You may recall this one in our guest bathroom.
I am excited to share this post with Marty's
upcoming Cloche Spring party on March 13th.
I thought I would or could not make it, because I really did not have too much to share.
But as you can see a trip to the Dollar tree can take care of that.
Have a great day!
