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