I love to decorate with cloches and normally I put something under them, but today I decided to put a floral design in them!
Before I show you some close up of the cloche.....(say that fast twice...lol!) I want to show you the two different ways I decorated the sides of the cloche
Jackalopes or Chickens?
Since my cloche is made from chicken wire, I decided on the Rooster and Hen. The Jackalopes found a home over on the pass thru with the bunny picture.
Now for the details on the floral design .......
I hung some metal letters on my cloche by making an S shaped hook from baling wire. The letters have a hanger on the back to slip my wire thru and then I just hung them from the chicken wire holes.
|I decided to move the tiered table (photo on the left) on the side of the buffet to the entry and I replaced it (photo on the right) with a small chair that was on the side of the fireplace.|
I wanted something simple on the chair, like a tea cup.....
But I decided to put my new yard sale buttons on the chair seat instead.
On the other side of the buffet.......
I placed a dish of pink buttons on the existing table.
Do you spot the second cloche in the bottom left of the photo?
I found it at a yard sale a couple of weeks ago for $2....
The smoking stand was in the entry, but got replaced by the tiered table you saw earlier. I stacked my second chicken wire cloche on top of the smoking stand.
Again, I just stuck my rose stems in the top of the chicken cloche. If you wanted to use real flowers instead of silk, you could add water in the ash tray holder.
What was in front of the mirror before I moved the smoking stand/ cloche?
The wicker house hamper under the tree.
I put my home made chicken wire cloche on the cherub plant stand and filled it with flowers. I could also use fresh flowers in this one by putting water in the bowl.
I would love to hear any idea's you might have on how to decorate with cloche's!
