Do you agree that anything looks better under a cloche? Well I think so, that’s why I want a cloche so badly.
I have been at the look out for one ever since I started thrifting, no luck so far, not even in the ‘this can be turned into a cloche’ department.
So I decided to take matters into my own hand. Remember that Chicken wire project I did last summer? Well I had a whole roll of that stuff left over, and somewhere in the back of my brain I had this idea that I saw at Raised in Cotton a long time ago and it inspired me to make one myself.
It is an easy and quick project. I used a vase to help me roll the wire in a tube. I cut the top part in pieces so that I could fold it inwards to form the dome. Pinched all the lose ends together and with a wire cutter cut away the excess. That’s it.
Because I am into white right now, I lightly spray painted it white. But I can imagine it looking good in black too. Or using rusted wire for a shabby look (I have some wire laying in my garden right now, but who knew that it is so hard to get that stuff to rust properly).
Oh, are you tired of my white cupboard yet? I hope not, because it is still my favorite vignette-playing spot in the house. It photographs so well and anything looks good on that cupboard. Especially under a cloche…
