FIRSTLY, LETS GET YOU A SUPPLY LIST:
- Sand Paper (Dollar Tree)
- Candle Stick (Dollar Tree)
- Mod Podge
- Paint (Dollar General)
- Cut out of Lemons (Free Print off Online)
- Hot Glue Gun
- Paint Brush
- Plastic Plate (Dollar Tree)
- Gorilla Glue
- Basket (Dollar Tree)
- Small Block (Dollar Tree)
- Large Farmhouse Bead (Dollar Tree)
SECONDLY, LETS GET INTO MAKING THE CRAFT:
You will start by taking your cut outs of the lemons and using a light coverage of mod podge on the front of the image. I then turned the image over and placed it onto the plate and used another light amount of mod podge. Continuing with the cut outs, I flipped over the plate deciding how I wanted to place the lemons. For the look I was going for, I placed the biggest lemon in the middle with smaller lemons around the edges of the plate. Afterwords, I began painting my candlestick with black and used the excess paint on the back of my plate..
THIRDLY, LETS PUT THE FINISHING TOUCHES ON THIS Dollar Tree Cloche:
As shown in the video, I then went in with the white chalk paint and used a generous amount on the back of the plate. This gives it a good contrast because black is such a dominant color. I will be using this plate for decorative purposes but if you chose to use this as a serving tray you will want to make sure to seal it. Afterwords, I take the white chalk paint and began painting the candle stick, creating a rustic look. To finalize this Dollar Tree cloche, I put gorilla glue on the top of the candlestick..
FINALLY, YOU HAVE MADE A Dollar Tree Cloche:
I place the candlestick on to the middle of the plate, creating a stand. Finally, I take a small block and large farmhouse bead and paint it white. I then use gorilla glue and E600 to create a handle on top of the basket. Then you have made a beautiful Dollar Tree cloche under $4. I added decorations inside my cloche and placed it with other lemon decor. There are so many possibilities with how you can utilize and decorate your cloche.
