LoL. Word of caution, like a potato chip, you can't stop at one. Wink Trust me..I have 6 or 7 of various shapes and sizes. I love playing with them in tablescapes tho. They make everything appear special. I don't even mind hand washing mine. BTW Junk collector, Home Goods and TJMaxx often have some in stock at great prices. There are also wire versions and those are apt to be found in a florist's shop. Keep in mind that cheese domes, cake domes and even upside down glass bowls can create a cloche effect.

I agree, cloches are fun and easy to decorate with! Lots of great ideas here Froo Froo!

I recently found three large lanterns while out thrifting, that I am thinking of using this fall, to hold interesting items - like a cloche but not. I am always looking for things to decorate my entry. Hopefully I'll get it done before the season is over.

Lanterns are not just for candles and can be treated much like apothecary jars. For Fall, they can contain feathered spheres, acorns, small pumpkins and gourds, candy corn, a crow, a pilgrim couple, mini Indian corn, dried flowers and pods, dried cranberries, to name a few. For Winter, pine cones and faux evergreen sprigs, holly, Christmas ornaments, starlight mints, deer figurine, small wrapped presents, candy canes to name a few. For Spring a bird's nest and eggs, decorated eggs, cherry blossom branch, a rabbit figurine, etc. For Summer, seashells, bird, star fish, sand, etc. Photos or postcards can be included at any time.

Keep in mind that embellishments can further enhance the top of the lantern. Ribbon, cording, tassels, flowers, sleigh bells, berry branches, greens, etc. are possible candidates.

Oh I've been eyeballing some,that's for sure! I need something new for my foyer chest. A few weeks ago I smashed the stem of a wine glass but wasn't thinking and chucked the whole thing Frown it could have been the start of my collection. As it is, I'm searching the house for anything that will do the trick!

I have a three foot tall bird cage on my patio that's set over a vineing plant; love it...especially since it was FREE. It was sitting by the curb before trash day and I asked if they were throwing away may I have it and they said sure!

I've seen similar ones, but smaller at thrift stores for $75!!! I didn't even have to paint it, but it did take out the bottom which was a bit yuck.

CJO, that cage sounds awesome. I would have retrieved it too. The possibilities are endless.

My pleasure, Strings. Smile

Another, but definitely doable for the novice florist.
