Repurposed Set of Small Cloches

One of the quickest and easiest projects with a great look is on tap for today! 

I've made these before and they are certainly worth revisiting! 

Grab a few finds from around your house and a couple of stemless wine glasses and follow along! 

You'll be glad you did!

Like I said, I've made these before and you can visit that post here.

Today I'm using more stemless wine glasses and creating a couple with a large finial on top!

Truth be told I bought a set of these inexpensive stemless wine glasses a while back and I don't like them for wine. The glasses are large and my hand barely goes around it. I always felt like I was about to drop my glass of wine! So, since I never use them for wine, why not repurpose them!

The cloches I made before had small knobs on top but today's cloche tops have a big presence!

I'm repurposing a couple of old curtain finials.

The finials started out black but a minute with a brush and Gold Leaf Rub and Buff made them an amazing gold color. I'm ready to buy this Rub and Buff in every color, they look great on so many projects!

I used this same Rub and Buff color on my outdoor solar light candles recently.  Anyway, just brush on the gold and let it dry. There is no rubbing and buffing involved with this project.

Once the finials were dry, or before if you can't wait, I used E 6000 glue to attach them to the bottom of the wine glass... which is now the top.

You can repurpose almost anything for a base too. 

I tried a wooden candle top, which just happened to be a perfect fit.

I used a square drink coaster which worked great too.

I also used a large candle top that I turned into a mini table riser

Anything makes a great base for these new giant finial cloches!

Fill the cloche with anything you want to make special just by sticking it under glass! This is a beautiful piece of coral my daughter just brought for me from Florida.

I'm adding these to the mini cloche collection on my living room shelves.
