DIY Glass Christmas Cloche

a-DIY Christmas Glass Cloche 166

I had this idea a little while ago…that I could use a stemless wine glass to create a pretty glass cloche with a Christmas scene in it. So, while I was cross border shopping on the weekend I picked up a stemless wine glass at Target in the dollar bins (seriously can’t wait until March when Target will be opening in Canada!) I wanted to create a little knob on the top, and thought a little glass furniture knob from the hardware store would work great, but they were a little expensive -up to $5 each. So, I dropped by my local Habitat for Humanity Reuse Store, and I found one for a buck.

I glued it to the bottom of the glass with a little super glue. To create the scene I used a sweet little mushroom ornament from Walmart, and found a cute Christmas fairy image on line, and re-sized it to fit in the cloche.

After cutting the fairy out, I embellished her with tinsel, stars, rhinestones and glitter.

I glued them all down with a little hot glue (and managed to burn my finger in the process) and added some cotton batting, fake snow and a tiny little Christmas gift.

Then I glued the cloche to the cardboard base I made out of some silver glittered card stock, and added some tinsel to cover and glue marks.

I really do love how it turned out, and think the fairy and mushroom will be so cute with my woodland themed Christmas this year, since every winter woodland needs a few Christmas fairies. ;)  I can think of lots more possibilities to create more with vintage looking paper Santas, little Christmas trees, or plastic reindeer.

Hope you like this sweet little ornament, and that in some small way at least, that life is a party for you today.
