Bring A Miniature World To Life With DIY Cloche Spring Decorations

Do you love Cloche Displays and Spring Decorations as much as I do? There’s just something about a little miniature world behind glass that seems almost magical to me. I have a friend who has a cloche display in her home and she changes it for the different seasons and holidays. Every time I visit, I am excited to see what is inside and am looking forward to seeing her cloche spring decorations.

Spring is here and what better activity defines the season than gardening? If you also love caring for plants and flowers, you might already have a glass terrarium, which is a type of cloche used to enclose plants. For our project, there’s no need to maintain your tiny world and it will represent the beauty of spring. Spring decorations make everyone a little happier and the days a little brighter.

While we do carry some glass ornaments with scenes inside, I wanted to see if I could create a cloche ornament of my own. Because glass is so heavy, I thought a substitution with plastic would get the same sort of result and be lightweight enough to hang from a tree branch or other spring decorations hanger in your home.

How To Make Wine Glass Cloche Ornaments Into Spring Decorations

Using a plastic wine glass (yes, the ones with the snap on bottom) you can make a unique cloche spring decoration. Because you will have to buy a package of wine glasses to use one, you might as well make adorable scene ornaments for all of the seasons and holidays. Have fun and get creative!

DIY Cloche Supplies:
• Plastic wine glass with snap on or removable bottom

cloche spring decorations supplies include a plastic wine glass, a hot glue gun, fake moss, and miniatures.
