If someone said to you, “I made a cloche out of a garbage can,” your first response probably wouldn’t be, “ooh, I bet that is really pretty!”  And yet…  it is really pretty!  I love how Krista from The Gathering Place Design styled her creation with a nesting bird figurine, giving it a look reminiscent of a vintage bird cage.  On her blog, she also shows the same arrangement with a different cake stand and a crystal knob instead of a filigreed finial to demonstrate that the project can also take on a softer look.  [how to make a wire basket cloche]

Project estimate:

  • Wire trash can, $1
  • Spray paint, on hand or $1 and up
  • Knob or finial, on hand or $1 and up
  • Cake stand, on hand or $1 and up

Total:  $1 and up
