This is just Soooo Easy!

Project Difficulty Level: CBE/TTRWAFD meaning~ Couldn't Be Easier/ Turned the Right Way And Found Dome



This is as easy as it gets. I found this dome with the flat place on the bottom {see last picture below} at a local thrift for $1.

I had the curtain rod end piece in my stash of junky stuff.

Used E6000 to glue them together.




I wanted it to be whimsical so the finial is kind of big for the dome.




I made the pedestal using this tutorial.

Here is another easy to do tutorial for making a cloche with stuff from the thrift and things around the house.

  26. SO cute! I really like the oversized finial it works perfectly with the tall dome. For me I would add a vintage piece of tinsel to the top for Easter, but that's just me I am a tinsel girl... I also REALLY LOVED your pedestal cloche!

    Best wishes,
    Tammy
