DOLLAR TREE SPRING CLOCHES


A couple of weeks ago, our friend Liz from Savvy Seasons by Liz   gave us a tutorial on how to make cloches using very economical items from the Dollar Tree.

I had just finished decorating my kitchen for Spring, but something was missing 
and this was the perfect project to finish it off.

I have already thanked Liz for sharing this idea and I also let her know I had made some, 
which I would be sharing with you all, but all the credit goes to her!
Thanks again, Liz! 

I took this idea of spray painting with stone paint a little further and also covered an old glass vase I already had.
I will be sharing the kitchen Spring decor as soon as I can edit my pictures. Working on it. 

 And here are my cloches!


I followed Liz's directions.  First I primed all the pieces.


This is the paint I purchased.
 I also used a different glue I already had. Next time I am out, I will pick up the E6000,
 but this new superglue worked very well also.


Waiting for the stone paint to dry.


And my little bunnies have a new home this Spring!


 Thank you, Liz, for the idea and inspiration.
I will share soon how I incorporated this project into my Spring decor for this year.

Meanwhile, enjoy your day! 

 Thank you for taking the time to stop by and leave a comment. It means so much to me!

  15. HI THERE...thanks for stopping in to visit my blog. New visitors are always fun. Wow, that project turned out really well. I am extremely useless when it comes to crafting. NO. KIDDING. Love the bunny under it. I will be back to see how you did your spring decor.

  17. I found an old Christmas cloche at Salvation Army in November and I've fallen in love with them ever since! I did a great Christmas vignette but I have decided to use it for my easter decorations. I crafted a birds next from Spanish moss and put some little blue eggs in it. I'm in love! Then, I was at a vintage sale a few weeks ago and came across the most beautiful blown glass cloche and grabbed it up for 8 bucks. I put a moss covered bunny under that one on my end table. I can't believe I didn't discover cloches until now. I love the ones you made yourself!
