Sheet Music Cloche

I am always finding glass cheese cloches on my thrifting adventures. However I’m not finding a ton of wooden bases, so I’ve got a pile of glass domes in my garage with no where to go. I’ve looked high and low, here and there for bases or items that would work as bases. No luck. I decided that getting creative was in order! 
While aimlessly staring at my stash in the garage I gazed upon some metal tins that I got from the Dollar Tree back at Christmas time.  I grabbed one of the lids and was pleasantly 
surprised to learn that the glass cloche fit perfectly into the metal lid. I grabbed a metal candlestick I had lying around and decided I could put something together!
Oh and I also grabbed some sheet music and ripped it up. Why? Because everything is better with sheet music. Or glitter.

I used Mod Podge to decoupage the torn pieces of sheet music to the metal lid. I just randomly pieced all the sheet music together making sure to cover all the bits of the happy little snowman on the metal lid.

Once the entire lid was covered and dry, I glued the now black painted candlestick to the underside of the lid. The glass dome fits perfectly inside the music covered lid and it makes the perfect pedestal base for my lonely glass cloche.

Not only did it turn out perfectly but it was cheap too! Thrift store finds plus $1 treat tin lid = super cuteness!!! Wouldn’t it make a great addition to Spring decor, I love that little birdy!!! So if you can’t find that “thing” you’ve been looking for, don’t be afraid to improvise!

Linking up to these great link parties!!!
