A handmade Christmas cloche can add a lot of warmth and sparkle to your holiday decor. This easy-to-follow guide shows you how to DIY one... with an IKEA find!
This blog post is part of a seasonal blog hop - Seasonal Simplicity - hosted by The Happy Housie. Make sure to check out all of the other Christmas DIY ideas from my blogging friends linked at the bottom of this post!
When I found these glass cloches with gold bases at IKEA, I knew they would make beautiful Christmas decorations. This adorable little Christmas cloche could be used as decor on a mantel, on a side table, or even as a table centerpiece this Holiday season.
You can make your DIY Christmas cloche exactly like mine, or experiment with the festive elements you place inside for a look that's completely unique.
How to make a DIY Christmas cloche
To begin, grab one of these BEGÅVNING glass domes with base from IKEA. I used the larger sized one (10").
Next find some ornaments and small decorations to place inside. For mine, I'm using a vintage looking reindeer ornament, some bottle brush trees and some dried florals.
Then, using a hot glue gun, affix the ornaments to the base of the cloche. Use a generous amount of hot glue to keep everything stable and make your the top of the top can still fit over top of the ornaments.
If you desire, add some sparkle to the cloche by gluing the battery pack of a short string of fairy lights to the bottom of the dome base. Then, wrap the lights around your ornaments & florals.
Finally, make the decorative cloche look even more festive by adding faux snow to the design.
I think this DIY Christmas cloche looks so sweet and I can't wait to use it in our Christmas decor! I also love that it's affordable using the IKEA glass dome as the base.
