GLASS CLOCHE PROJECTS-from the thrift store,of course!

Well, it's about time for another thrift store junk project.......................don't you think!!??!!
I (like many of you) absolutely love glass cloches, and every time I am at the thrift store I pick up anything that even resembles a cloche.  These are some cloche projects I did this past summer.

Ahhhh,...there is nothing better than embellished junk!  The rhinestone piece hanging off the top of this first cloche is a piece from a broken bracelet.  The wording is courtesy of my beloved xyron cutter, but I also use rub-ons, and if you have a steady hand you could use paints and stencils for your words.

In addition to always picking up any type of glass cloche I also can never resist any silver pieces I come across at the thrift store.

Several years ago I bought these cut glass cloches and they have been awaiting the perfect project at the bottom of some box!!!  I am happy to finally put them to use!



Yes, the house is somewhat overflowing with cloches, but happily they do seem to sell pretty quickly.  I have several cloche projects on the go right now so will show them to you all as I get them finished.
Enjoy your day my blogging friends!

Janis - I really, really like your style. One of my passions are words, words alone, words together, words in a group. I am always so careful about what I say and how I say it. Each word expresses so much. I want that first cloche "Love Deepley". I'll have to keep checking you out to see how I can get it.

Beautiful! I was just in a thrift shop today and only found one measly piece I could use as a cloche..I think it was actually a big candle holder of some sort as there's no knob on top. Works for me :o)
peace.

What beautiful work you did with your cloches, and you've given me an idea too! I never thought to use something like that piece of crystal. So creative!

Rustydiva said...

You have inspired me to collect so many things that I would normally pass up ~ thank you for opening up my world!!!! I have found 1 little glass cloche so far and look forward to many many more. Have a great week-end my friend.

Janis ~ These are so gorgeous - you've thought of so many clever ways to use them and embellish them - I'll definitely use some of your ideas. I have a few cloches but it is my favorite collecting item and I need, really NEED so many more!!! I'm going to go back now and feast on these pictures one more time before I leave you today.

God bless....

Oh yes - they are pretty. Have them too - not that I use them for anything - the sole purpose for to own them is because they do look lovely.
