15 minute Cloche!

 Hi friends! I know I've been MIA, but I'm so thankful that you all hung around and continued "following" me! I think you all are GREAT, and I love that you're here :-)

 Life has been crazy....I feel like I've been running non-stop since the second week of July! So much has happened. But alas, we're going to be starting our new homeschool year in 4 weeks; it's almost fall which is my favorite season; and it seems that everything "falls" back into place in the fall. So I'm looking forward to that! 

 Yesterday, I whipped together what I'm calling the 15 minute Cheese Dome Turned Cloche! It literally took 15 minutes, give or take with drying.

 I picked up the cheese dome at a thrift shop for 1.00, and the candle holder at the Dollar Tree. So $2.00 for this project-MY KINDA PROJECT!

UUUUUUUG-LEE!



After removing the feet underneath, Spray the plate and candle holder black in the forbidden-spray-paint-corner.



Whip out the e6000 to attach the dome plate to the candle holder base


TaDaaaaa!!! So purdy.


Can't wait to put a sweet, metallic pumpkin in here in the fall!

Tomorrow I'm going to have an AWESOME giveaway for you guys, so make sure to head on back over here!

  5. Very nice! Good thinking to look at the Dollar store for a base. Sometimes just when you are looking at the thrifts they seem to "hide" all the possible bases. :)

  18. Whoa! I NEVER find a cheese home at my Goodwill...yours looks awesome with the Dollar Tree vase. I just painted the same vase/candleholder (could be either depending on which end is "up") a cream color yesterday and plan to "crackle" it. Great minds think alike.

  25. That looks awesome! Am always hunting for a cheese dome in charity shops here to do a project like this, but they always seem to come without their glass lid =/ Us Brits must be accident prone!
