I have so been in the crafting, do it yourself, decorating mood lately. I've been re-arranging things, hanging pictures, moving pictures, making this, making that! Bloggers inspire me! ;-)
I recently got these miniature, single serve, trifle bowls at Walmart.
I had a general idea of what I'd use them for...I was thinking a cloche for some smalls and then decided they'd be perfect for cupcakes, cookies or candy. I had some extra lavender transferware saucers in the Charlotte pattern and decided these would be the perfect base. I simply turned the bowls upside down and tied them with double ribbons, one a sheer, wire edged purple and the other is a darling, hand stamped ribbon I purchase at A Little Scrappy. A Little Scrappy is offering one of Nancy's Daily Dish readers a coupon to her shop where you'll find tons of hand stamped items including ribbons (I asked her to do the purple just for this project!), tags, cards, clothespins, adorable muslin bags and more.
Next I glued some bird nests to the base and topped each with a little purple winged birdie!
Here is the finished cloche...I've shown it here with cookies, and candies...it would also be cute for jewelry, cupcakes or any little nick-knack. Tuesday I'll show the entire tea tablescape so be sure to check back then...I'll be announcing an additional giveaway too!
With pretty, lavender infused cookies from Mel Mellis Sweet Treats
and here with the most realistic faux anything I've ever seen...hand made chocolates from Donna Pitkoff Studios I am not even kidding. Not one person who has seen these has not either picked one up to eat or asked if they could have one! Then when I say they are fake they have to feel it...which does not convince them, so they then give it a sniff test! They don't smell bad at all, they just don't smell like chocolate...other than that you just can't tell that they are fake.
Here, I topped one of the cloche's with a flower instead.
Be sure to come back and see the full table setting on Tuesday, and enter the additional giveaway!
