Turn A Broken Thrift Store Clock Into A Christmas Cloche EASILY

2 Materials
15 Minutes
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!
When I saw this clock in the thrift store, I grabbed it. To a lot of people, it is a broken and outdated clock. To me, I saw “Christmas Cloche” potential. 
I knew this was going to be the easiest project too!
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 spread apart  cotton balls and put them on the bottom of the cloche. I didn’t have cotton stuffing or batting on hand so cotton balls worked well for the small amount I needed.
I shopped our home for the other items I added to the Repurposed Christmas Cloche. The red truck, {aff} 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. That was it!!
You could customize this any way you like. Next time you are in a thrift store, don't pass by these broken clocks so quick. They have loads of potential!!
