I have no idea why these adorable Santa figurines were two for $1.00 at my local Dollar Tree, but who am I to pass up a great deal?  They're just so cute!  I ran through several ideas in my head, and in the end I decided to make an adorable Santa Christmas cloche.  Since my little Santa is a gardener, I plan to  place poinsettias or mistletoe in the cloche.  It would also look cute filled with ornaments, fake snow, or even cookies for Santa!

To make your own Santa Christmas Cloche:

Step 1:  Remove labels from glass and figurine.  Use E-6000 to glue Santa to the base of the bowl.

Step 2:  Paint the wood plaque red.

Step 3:  Set the cloche on top of the base.  Fill with treats, ornaments, flowers, etc.

No one will guess that everything came from the dollar store!  If you're a hoarder deal-seeker like me, you probably purchased several little Santa figurines and can make lots of gifts with them, like this cloche or my mason jar.  Happy crafting!
