DIY Dollar Tree Cloche

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)
  • Knob
  • Paint
  • 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.
