Hi friends! Are you experiencing major spring fever this week? We went from having a snow day last week to Sweet P wearing shorts to school this week. And I am not mad at all! I definitely have spring on the brain and can’t wait to share some spring projects I have in the works. But first, today I want to share why you need this cute little glass cloche with base… and how to make it for only $3!
If you love changing things up in your kitchen with the seasons and holidays then I think this little glass cloche with base is the perfect item to keep in your home accessory “capsule.”
Here you can see I styled it with Valentine Cakes (um, yes- these are in fact the fancy Little Debbie Valentine Cakes from the grocery store!).
But isn’t it precious?

Can’t you just see this out on the counter for each season? Picture a chocolate bunny for Easter, or a mini gingerbread house for Christmas. Think fresh lemons and limes for summer and tiny pumpkins for fall. Today I will share how I made this for around $3, but if you aren’t a DIY Girl- this cloche from Crate and Barrel looks pretty cute and would have the same look.
How to Make a Glass Cloche with Base
- Small Glass Vase- I found the one shown below at the Dollar Tree
- Glass Taper Holder- I found the one shown below at the Dollar Tree
- Glass Plate- I think this is for a candle- You guessed it- from the Dollar Tree!
- Gorilla Glue- or any glue you have on hand that works with glass
All you have to do is follow the directions for the glue and glue the taper holder to the glass plate. Then I just plopped a heavy book on top and let it sit for 24 hours.
Then I just turned the vase upside and voila- instant sweetness for my counter!
I hope you are inspired to add a little Valentine’s Day to your kitchen counters with this simple method. And of course, grab a box of those Little Debbie cake hearts. Just be prepared for your kids to beg for them every night after dinner.
