Y’all know I love me a thrifty DIY from time to time and let me just tell ya, this little DIY Dollar Tree cloche does not disappoint! Use it for trinkets, display a candle or simply let it stand on its own. Any way you use it your guests will never know it was a DIY. That can be our little secret.
Supplies for a DIY Cloche
- Small wood turning (I used a wood candlestick holder)
- Small trinket tray (Dollar Tree)
- Class cup or vase (Dollar Tree)
- Rub-On Transfer (Dollar Tree)
- Quick and Thick multi surface glue or any other type of strong adhesive
Begin by attaching your turning to the base of the trinket tray for added height and paint with chalk paint. I used white by Waverly. It has excellent coverage and easily covered the existing pattern.
Next, I applied the rub on transfer. This process is pretty self explanatory. Simply peel the backing off and rub with a flat object to transfer the image to tray.
Just be sure to peel the plastic back slowly to ensure proper transfer.

I did end up sealing the base with a matte varnish. It’s just a little extra precaution against the heat of the candle or wear and tear from everyday use.
The last step of this simple little DIY is attaching the knob to the base of the glass which will become the actual cloche. I think I might have a little bit of an obsession with cloche DIYs. I made a winter scene cloche with a couple of thrifted items a few years ago that could easily be switched out for the seasons. Recently I even made a miniature St. Patrick’s Day display for a glass cloches we have in store.
Look at how precious this old knob looks perched on top of the glass! I would recommend a knob with a bit of a wider base if only using an adhesive. Otherwise I would suggest a glass drill bit and small screw to secure it to the top.
That is all there is to this simple little DIY Dollar Tree cloche! I love being able to bring a few things together to make something so adorable and thrifty!
