I recently posted a Mason Jar Patriotic Phrase Display. Using only the solar lit top, I was left with a stake and a glass globe. I thought I could use that globe for a bell jar.
Time: 5 MinutesCost: $0Difficulty: Easy
The little glass globe was just the right size for a petite cloche or bell jar.
Used mainly for decoration now, in the Victorian times bell jars were used to start seeds or protect seedlings before transplanting.
On closer inspection, I noticed a screw which was holding the piece which connected the stake. Remove this screw to detach the plastic piece.
This left a small hole on top of the cloche perfect for a small knob. I didn't have anything I particularly cared for except some diamond gem stones. Using E-6000 I glued one stone to the cloche inserting the sharp diamond point into the hole and letting it dry overnight.
Here the cloche is ready for display. I had 3 cloches left from my patriotic post but I honestly could not remove the screw from the 3rd one. I stripped the screw I worked on it so hard! The first two were easy.
Suggested materials for this project:
- Extra glass globes from solar lights (Had them)
- Screwdriver to remove screw (Had)
- Glass diamond gems (Had)
