What do you think?
It was super easy to make and cost less than $10 - not including the paint and E6000 glue. Here's what you need - dollar store candlestick, glass vase (got this one at Walmart), small plate (Walmart), wood knob, large washer, E6000 glue and Krylon Gold Metallic Spray Paint.
Here are the pieces before they were glued and painted.
Making the cloche is easy to do but will take 2 days to allow everything to dry. Start by spray painting the washer and knob and let dry thoroughly. Once dry, glue the washer and knob to the top of the vase with E6000. Next glue the plate to the candlestick with E6000, let dry overnight and spray paint the candlestick and plate. I used Krylon Metallic spray paint and it is amazing! I love the beautiful gold finish that it gave to this project and would highly recommend it.
I love how well it ties in with the other gold accents on our mantel and it is such a simple, elegant and easy DIY. I'm sure you could find a place for one in your home.
Wishing everyone a wonderful week! We are praying for a dry week down here in Texas!
