Decorating Fall Cloches

Decorated glass cloches can be pretty, but I had never really paid any attention to them, that is, until Marty from A Stroll Thru Life announced a "Cloche Party"  on October 16th.  You better believe I paid attention this time. In fact, I think I got carried away.  Marty said in addition to a glass cloche, you could use birdcages or metal containers, or hurricanes, or anything that suits you  .   .   .       I think I just made that up.  Anyway, she did say anything you can dream up to decorate in and under  .   .   
Now that's a wonderful idea!

Lets see, I have a birdcage, a metal container, and a glass cloche.  Hot diggety dog!!!

Decorated the outside of my birdcage with autumn decor  .   .    .

It looks ok, but I'm not really feeling this.


Next, I take my wire container, turn it upside down and string acorn ornaments from the top (bottom), 
add a mesh bow and pumpkins  .  .   .


Hmm, now this is different  .   .   .  but,

I got out my glass cloche and added some funky leaves  .   .    . and trim





 But then I decided to go a bit with a Halloween design and came up with


 Taken at night  .   .   .  

 Lit Haunted House  .   .   .
 Look at those eyes  .   .   .   (dollar store)

That's cute, but I'm not really into Halloween,
so I wanted to glam things up a bit and painted my little pumpkin, coral, added some bling, lace and ribbon  .   .   .










Now this is what I'm talking about  .   .   .   A Pretty Decorated Fall Cloche! And it definitely has my attention!  Thanks, Marty.

Enjoy!
