Belle Jar DIY

Belle Cloche
Confession. I love decorating with glass cake domes both big, small, elegant, & simple. Really, you can set anything under a glass dome & it automatically looks swanky.

Another word for decorative cake domes is Cloche . In french, a cloche translate to 'bell' which makes sense as the clear glass covers resemble the shape of a bell.

Beauty & The Beast 
In the foodie world, these domes are used to cover sweets, cheese, & other edible objects. In the decorating world, I have seen elegant shoes, faux flowers, jewels, to odd nicknacks placed under a cloche.


I suppose,  my obsession with these glass covers started way back when I saw Disney's Beauty & The Beast.

If you recall, there was an enchanted rose placed under a cloche. & If you really recall, Belle was enchanted by it.

This got me inspired to create my own clothe which I am calling a 'Belle Jar'--get it? It's super simple to make.

An Enchanted Rose...
You'll Need:

  • A faux rose {any craft store}
  • A small-medium size clothe { again, any craft store or antique place}
  • A beautiful dresser or end table in your home to set on for display

This DIY is so simple & a beauty. Just ask the beast.
