Dollar Store Cloche......

Home Decor........    after Christmas I was feeling very "blue" about the home decor.  I had put all the Christmas decorations away and it looked so bare.   I have never been one to be what I call a home decorator, I had my furniture but have never been one to collect things and decorate- didn't even really have tables or anything to collect/decorate.  So I decided, after checking out a handful of blogs, that I needed to start decorating.  So today I have a project that I found over on Liz's blog- it is making Cloches out of dollar store items- does it get any better than this?  You will love her blog, she knows how to decorate and much of her goodies she makes so better yet.  But since I have been viewing her blog I have definately gotten many ideas and done a fair amount of shopping.  :) 
 So this here cloche is one I made following her directions with dollar store candlestick, plate, bowl, moss and bunny.  Yep- each item was $1 so I made it for $5 and to buy one I just saw at Home Goods was about $13 but now I can change out my bunny for other seasonal items year round!
I actually bought enough to do 2 of these..... so not sure what I will do with the other one because when I bought them I had planned on painting one black- oops I got so carried away spray painting that I forgot.  The paint I used is textured and two tone- and I love it.  I told my hubby he could call me the painting maniac today.  So I leave you now with this inspiration............... check out The Tablescaper as I linking to them.

THank you so much for visiting my blog! To answer your question, I created the babys breath using a die set from Cheery Lynn Designs. The die cuts both the branches and flowers...22 flowers at a time! The die is called Build a Flower Embellishment #2. Here is the link

Neat job. Such a sweet little bunny.
