Cloches are so pretty, but what do you put in them? Check out 5 of my favorite, simple ways to style a glass cloche for the spring season. What will you put in your cloche this spring? Keep reading for my favorite tips!
If you don’t have a cloche, no problem! You can tweak these ideas and use in your spring vignettes. If you’re on the hunt for a cloche, I’m linking several throughout the post and hopefully that helps you out!
I have found most of my cloches at vintage or antique shops, though I have several smaller ones that I have uncovered at thrift stores! (Watch for the little domes that come with the clocks!)
Cloches usually aren’t the most inexpensive decor, but they are fun to style and I love to invest in great pieces that I can switch around for the different seasons.
I had fun gathering some different items that I could use to style a glass cloche for spring. There are so many different things you can do and lots of things you can mix and match, depending on the style and size of your cloche!
So, let’s get started and see what you can put in your cloche for spring!
1. Style a Glass Cloche with a Plant!
It seems like an obvious idea, but I don’t know how many times I’ve stood there, scratching my brain for what I could use in my cloche, totally not thinking about a cute, faux plant!
I love this greenery sphere from Flower and Home Marketplace. Paired with a vintage brass planter, it is the perfect fit under my larger cloche. The brass ties in with my thrifted brass bird candlesticks to create a simple, spring vignette!
While I love using real plants around our home, small faux plants are perfect to use under a cloche. Flower and Home Marketplace also has this small plant that is so realistic and looks so pretty under my big cloche!
Just a side note, please excuse all the pool reflections in the photography! That’s what I get for styling on a pretty, spring-like day in South Florida! 😉😅
2. Style a Glass Cloche with a Collection
I love mortar and pestles, so anytime I get a chance to use them in decorating, whether it is in a vignette, on a shelf, or to style a glass cloche, I’m super happy about it! I was trying to find some small egg filler for spring but everything I had was too big…until I remembered these little wooden place card holders!
They fit perfectly in this mortar under my cloche! I layered it with a realistic faux eucalyptus candle ring from Flower and Home Marketplace. I’m using these candle rings everywhere this spring!
Consider using collections under your cloche, such as ironstone, glassware, milk glass, or just a pretty bowl! Then add some seasonal filler and you’ll have an instant centerpiece!
3. Style Seasonal Accents Under a Glass Cloche
Nothing says spring decor to me quite like cute bunnies! I have lots of different ones that I love to use around our home, but this pair from Flower and Home Marketplace is just perfect to fit under my medium size glass cloche! I layered them with the eucalyptus candle ring for an extra spring touch.
4. Style a Glass Cloche with Vintage Books
No matter the season, vintage books are one of my favorite things to style with a cloche. In fact, when I’m thrifting or antiquing, I especially look for some smaller sized books that fit well under a cloche!
One of my favorite thrifting finds was a stack of miniature musical scores. The old covers and classical titles look so pretty displayed under my glass cloches.
For this spring look, I used a small, deconstructed book (try this with an old paperback from the thrift store!) and a tattered song book. I layered them with the sitting bunny and I love how all of the color and texture work together!
5. Small Cloches are Fun Too!
While I love the look of large cloches, definitely don’t discount the small ones! Look for these domes at thrift stores with clocks. Sometimes they are really inexpensive and you can just use the dome with a plate or bowl.
I paired my small glass cloche dome with a little salvage piece that I found at a shop for $5! The little things are so fun!
To give some layer and texture under this cloche, I added a small stack of white vintage ironstone butter pats and one wooden egg. Super simple but I love how cute it looks!
These are especially fun to use a group of cloches too!
I found some cute eggs online that would be perfect to add under a cloche or even in a dough bowl. I love these woven ones because of the great texture and neutral color.
These white, ceramic eggs are beautiful and so classy! They would be really pretty for an Easter tablescape too!
If you like the look of the wooden eggs, this set is a great price! They would be fun for some crafts and DIY with kids too!
I hope these ideas have sparked your creativity about items you have around your home that you can use to style a glass cloche for the spring season! Just adding one, simple little spring accent to your regular decor can be all a vignette needs to feel fresh and ready for spring!
So, what will you style in your cloche this spring?
