Take one brass pillar candle holder base to repurpose as the base for your cloche. I chose to paint my brown.
Add a thrift tore glass cloche that fits your base; glue (using e6000 adhesive) a little ceramic bird from the craft store onto your cloche as a handle.
This bird was purchased in this chocolate brown color; which is why I painted the base brown. I just wanted to try one that wasn’t shabby white, since that is the style I usually do. Nice to offer something different every once in a while.
Perfect fit! with just enough room to add a little nest and egg under the cloche.
Finished and ready to sell! I hand form my nests out of Spanish moss. (and I usually GLUE the eggs into place. Sticky fingers seem to be VERY attracted to little eggs!)
After looking at it for a while, I decided it needed a bow at the top.
This cloche went to our space in Camas Antiques.
