DIY Inexpensive Mini Cloche

  
Christmas is right around the corner...
The countdown is on...
So here is a real quick, easy and inexpensive craft for you all.
 
 
 You can find these little votive candle holders at Walmart for around 50 cents -I've seen them at other stores too.
 
 
I purchased these cabinet door knobs at Walmart -They came in a two pack. I've seen them at Target and the hardware stores too.
 
 
 Grab yourself some E6000 glue...Once again, Walmart sells this glue as do all the craft stores, it's fabulous glue! 
 
 
It's embarrassingly easy.  Glue the cabinet door knob with the E6000 glue to the bottom of the bigger votive candle holder....Let it dry 24 hours~After that just sit the cloche on the small votive holder-Taa Daa!
The great thing about these cloches is that they can be used year round.
 
 
You don't have to use the mini cloche on the small votive holder, it's just as cute sitting on a pretty plate! 
 
 
Or you can buy yourself a fancy schmancy pier candlestick
(wood or glass)
 I've seen these anywhere from $1 to $6 ~
I'm using mine as table place holders. You can go cute or fancy with these. Fill them with small glass ornaments if you want to be a bit more classy.  
 
 
My granddaughter Noelle has already called dibs on the snowman!
 
Merry Christmas Friends.

  1. Robin,
    Oh, look at these cloches! I love the one with the mini snowman. You are always working on creative projects, my friend. Your house must look so nice all decked out for Christmas. Noelle will love this little cloche, I'm sure.

    Enjoy the weekend!

    Love,
