Repurposed Glass Vase Cloche

6:00:00 AM

"What are you going to do with that glass vase?"

That was the question I got while carrying this
large vase out of work...

They all know about me... they know that
I like to make things out of other things... 

I see something and I think about what it could be... 
not what it is.

So the clear vase that held flowers in the front entry
at work did become something new and beautiful.

The first thing I did was to drill a hole in the top using a drill bit for glass and a drop of water. The drill bit easily cut a hole in the 
top of the upside-down vase.

I searched through my stash of unique metal pieces to find
this piece... perfect!  

Adding an antique glass knob to the top of the finial
I attached the pieces with the long screw that goes through the
glass knob, the finial, and the vase. Inside the vase they
are attached with a washer and a nut.

That is all it took to transform this round vase into 
a beautiful large glass cloche.

This worked beautifully on a large vase like this or creating
smaller cloches with something like a stemless wine glass.

I bet my friends at work never thought of 
saving that vase for this.

    1. I would find something to fill it with... maybe something rusty or chippy and add some fall leaves for autumn season.
