Have y’all jumped on the “Cloche Craze”? Cause I have, in a major way!
I realized today I have them sprinkled all over my house. I then realized I have paid no more than about $3.00 a piece for them! You can see one here at amazon for quite a bit of money!
These have all been collected over the last year or so at goodwill and thrift stores …
This one sits on my piano (for today). The dome was purchased at my favorite local thrift store for maybe a buck! The base was picked up a long time ago at that same thrift store for about the same. Fill in with some decorative orbs that came with some potpourri (more on that in a bit) and wah-la! Ties in nicely with my DIY Orbs don’t ya think! That whole little grouping was less than $10.00. I found the smell good sticks (or whatever they are called) on clearance at kirklands last winter and just get refills.
This little beauty on a silver pedestal came as a set of three from my favorite thrift store. My cats broke the other 2 domes but this one survived. I think I paid $4 for the whole set and I use the remaining pedestals for other projects. The potpourri inside is from the same bag as the orbs from the first photo. I think I paid $5 for the whole bag and I used it in lots of places. So approximately $1.50 for the dome and pedestal, $1.50 worth of potpourri and some ribbon I had left over from some project or another.
The frames in this little grouping came from the Dollar Tree (LOVE THEM!), and the wire easel I’ve had for AGES! This whole grouping comes to about $7! Oh, how I love thrift stores! Feel free to brag on how adorable my oldest son is 🙂
This little beauty sits in my bathroom, over the throne in a little cabinet. Once again, the cloche came from that same thrift store and is filled with more of that same potpourri. The ribbon is actually the ribbon that was on the potpourri bag! I think I paid $1 or so for the glass dome.
The towels are some I picked up on sale at Tar-jay. The little white birdie came from goodwill for about $2. Of course, there’s more orbs. I’m obsessed with them!
This honking beauty usually serves as a cake dome for my home but I’m in love with the cloche craze so I thought it would be awesome! It’s filled with various orbs I had laying around and some moss from last years Easter decorations.
It lives on top of my fridge with another Dollar Tree frame and a picture of the twins. Please forgive the sinfully ugly wallpaper! I live in an apartment I forgot where/when/how much the smell good sticks are from. … The cake dome was a wedding present (its the SAME EXACT one as my maw-maw’s!) so it was free! So basically, everything was on-hand so this little grouping falls into the free category!! YAY!!!
What I love about cloches or glass domes or whatever you want to call them is how easy it is to change them out to suit the seasons or holidays or even your mood!
Come summer, I have visions of one filled with coral 🙂
What do you do with yours?
