Repurposed Christmas Cloche {DIY in 30}

2 Mins read

I shared this project last year on The Shabby Creek Cottage and I am excited to share it with you today. If you have been here for some time, you know that repurposing is one of my favorite things. Repurposing helps me achieve the look I want without breaking the bank. Today, I am showing you a Christmas project that was so easy to do that I almost didn’t write about it. DIY projects that can be completed under thirty minutes are the best projects. This Repurposed Christmas Cloche was done in under fifteen! 

Repurposed Christmas Cloche

This Repurposed Christmas Cloche started out with a quick trip to one of my local thrift stores. I love searching yard sales and thrift stores for amazing pieces I can repurpose for our home.

This particular shopping trip, I saw a clock and immediately put it in my cart.

To a lot of people, it is a broken and outdated clock. I saw “Christmas Cloche” potential. 

To make this broken clock a Christmas cloche, I had to remove the clock inside by unscrewing it from the bottom.

With the clock out, it was time to add “Christmas”.

I didn’t have cotton stuffing or batting on hand. So, I spread out cotton balls on the bottom instead.

I shopped our home for the other items I added to the Repurposed Christmas Cloche. The red truck, green bottle brush tree and the string of ornaments were finds from a yard sale a few summers ago. The bleached bottle brush trees were a Black Friday find at Michaels last year.

I love this little Christmas Cloche! 

I have less than $5 invested and a cute little decoration to boot.

When I was putting the “scene” together, I thought it really started to look like a Christmas Tree Farm. I need to make a tree farm sign to add to it.

The best part of this Christmas Cloche is that it is plastic!!!

Can you tell?

Me neither.

If you don’t tell anyone, I won’t either.

I don’t have to worry about the kids knocking it over and having it shatter all over the place. 

Cute, inexpensive and safe for the kiddos??

I’ll take it.
