Decorating with Cloches

I have a lot of cloches and use them all the time in my vignettes.  Here is a fall cloche, filled with dried pumpkin stems and thread.      I have my Santos filled with a clock face here, but you will see it later in this post filled with pumpkins.  I have had it filled with dishes, cups, stacks of folded linens, you name it!

I have the small cloche on a silver plate stand.  It only has room for a  single spool of thread topped with a flower made from an old dress pattern.

Here is the Santos filled with sweater pumpkins for fall.....

A chicken wire cloche is so versatile!  I is so big you can put almost anything under it is with a bird house......

Here it is filled with a beautiful bust.....

And here it is filled with a scary glittered skull!!!

This is one of the cloches that I am putting on my Thanksgiving table this year.    Just a silver tray filled with jewelry, a small pumpkin on a silver vase, topped off with a cloche.  It will really sparkle when I get all the candles lit for our special dinner!

This is another cloche I am getting ready for the Thanksgiving table. I have an old ceiling light on a cake plate...then just a cloche and a simple silver pumpkin.

A group of cloches...

This is a different kind of's an old oil lamp with a Halloween owl in it!

I have a post that featured him called "Halloween is a Hoot" Here is the link if you would like to see more...
