Who can resist the beauty of a cloche?

They have a trans-formative effect on pots – turning the ordinary into the awesome.

The only issue with cloches are price – they are expensive.  Here’s a way to get around that without breaking the budget.

DIY Cloche

Then, tip it upside down and adhere a knob to the bottom of the vase using gorilla glue.  And Viola!  Instant cloche!
