How to Use Cloches for Valentines Day Decor and Gift Ideas

Valentine’s Day Decor Ideas

Today, I’m sharing How to Use Cloches for Valentine’s Day Decor as well as Valentine’s Day Decor Ideas for gifts.

This was a fun project that allowed me to use items already on hand, with the exception of candy, cookies, and printable cards.

I’m including a list of items used as well as detailed instructions on how to pull the vignette together.

Pinterest Challenge

I decided to attempt this project as a result of a monthly Pinterest Challenge hosted by Cindy at County Road 407. This month’s inspirational photo comes from Birgit at Crafting While I Wait.

Coffee Table Vignette for Valentine’s Day with Cloches

For this challenge, I decided to add cloches and Valentine’s Day decor to the wooden bowl on my coffee table.

When using bowls and trays to corral decor items together, the individual items come together to create a more cohesive vignette.

Vintage Valentine’s Day cards were something that I regrettably didn’t have for this project. If time had permitted, I would have ordered some authentic cards on Etsy. However, this was not an option, and therefore, I decided to download a couple of printable cards.

I was excited to find one card that was a free printable, and the other adorable vintage card was available on Etsy for a minimal price.

Now, it’s time to gather your supplies.

These are the items I used, however I recommend using items that you have on hand. Look through your decor supplies to find similar items that will work for your vignette.

To begin, insert one of the printable cards in a chunky vintage frame. The other card will be placed inside the large glass cloche.

It is easy to secure the card on the inside of the glass cloche by adding a couple pieces of clear tape at the bottom edge. You may need to fold the card to make it fit properly.

In order to elevate the arrangement, you can add a wooden riser, a small metal cake stand or something similar to give your vignette some height.

Next, add the framed vintage card to the back of the bowl and fill in open spaces with brass candle sticks.

In addition, the quilted hearts can be placed on the candlesticks or you may use candles if you desire.

Style A Large Cloche for Valentine’s Day

For the main centerpiece, use the wooden riser and silver tray, which you will cover with the larger cloche.

First, before adding the cloche, add the main items to the silver tray, which will be added to the riser.

Here, I used the martini glass filled with chocolate hearts and the milk glass vase with two tulips.

In addition, I added a quilted heart and sprinkled additional candy around the base.

Finally, position the large glass cloche with the vintage printable card over this vignette.

Now your vignette is almost complete, and you can place the remaining quilt hearts around the cloches and on the candlesticks as desired.

I’m excited about how the Valentine’s Day Decor and Cloche-filled bowl came together. It makes a perfect romantic centerpiece for the coffee table and would also look great on a dining or console table.

I can't believe I missed this one, Rachel! I've always wanted to use cloches in my decor but I never know what to put under them or how to style them. I love how you layered these with lots of vintage goodies and and how easy they can be for last minute Valentine's decor ideas too. They're fabulous! Can't wait to share this post on Friday. Hugs, CoCo

Karen, You may need to refresh your browser. All the pins are workings correctly. Occasionally, I have that problem if I've been on someone's site for some time.
