Under Glass | Decorating with Glass Cloches

 Decorating with Glass Cloches

When I was cleaning house the other day I realized that I own 5 glass cloches, 11 if you count the small ones I use with small cake pedestals for desserts.

I’ve always loved the look of cloches and have fun decorating with them seasonally like fall and Christmas but I often struggle with how to use them for everyday decor.

If you own a glass cloche or two and struggle with decorating ideas, I’ve rounded up a few that I think will inspire you.

As you go about decorating keep in mind that a cloche is a great place to display collectibles, art, vintage jewelry, plants and flowers.

DECORATING WITH GLASS CLOCHES

The idea of nesting small globes under glass is really great for a home office, study or kids play room. This is a simple and eclectic design statements that looks really expensive.  World Market sells small world globes perfect for recreating this look.

For more traditional decor, this idea of a stack of small leather books with a decorative object on top works.  You can find a types of leather books on Etsy.

Here’s a fun idea using a vintage scale.  You can place just about anything under a cloche on a scale and it would look amazing.  I think it would be fun to put colorful spools of thread under one cloche and a collection of thimbles under the other.

In the past I’ve rolled old book pages and put them under one of my cloches’ and I love the way it looks.  This is a fun idea at Christmas using rolled music sheets and small ornaments.

My friend Marsha will love this idea because she is a tea cup collector.  This is a fun way to showcase special tea cups.  I can envision three of these down the center of a table as the centerpiece for a tea party.  Shop your local thrift store or flea market for unique tea cups and don’t be afraid to mix and match the cups and saucers.

I have a love for sea shells and think this idea is so beautiful.  If you collect shells during your vacations to the beach this would be a fun way to display them.
