Today I want to share my Valentine Cloche. Cloches are a fun year-round decor staple.
Here’s the deal I own very few vintage items and I can barely sew a button let alone have a collection of them.
Three years ago I did not know a glass jar with a base was called a cloche. I know right. It is amazing I was accepted into this amazing group of women who inspire me daily.
So I am ahead of the game this year with my Valentine cloche.
My first attempt at my Valentine cloche included shiny heart garland. It was more 4th of July meets Valentine’s Day.
A little too much sparkle and glitz for winter.
Over the weekend I decided it was too much and went back to the original Pinterest image.
That’s what I love about Pinterest Challenges they often take me out of my comfort or creative zone.
So I circled back to the original image. And this is what I did:
HOW TO MAKE A VALENTINE CLOCHE IN MINUTES
- I used paper hearts and held them together with a wooden toothpick
- added pom snowballs to hold the Valentine card in place. The snowballs are a subtle reference to winter in February.
- I found these cute gingham pink hearts at Hobby Lobby and added them to my narrow cloche.
And then I just stuffed the cloche from the top down. There is something magical about a cloche when I stepped back and saw the results.
I would love if you pinned this image to inspire future crafters who didn’t know what a cloche was before this post.
