Cloche Idea For Spring

in , by Julie Nichols, April 27, 2020
Hi sweet friends how are you? I hope you are doing well!  If you're looking for a quick spring craft idea you're in the right place!  Today I have a quick project using a cloche, faux spring flowers, and live moss to create a beautiful spring bouquet that will brighten the day

You can purchase moss at most craft stores and even on Amazon.  We have several large trees in our yard providing a shady spot for moss to grow so I dug some up from my yard.  Did you know moss is super easy to dig up?  Just use your fingers to peel it off the ground.

Now that you have your moss, place it on top of a plate and trim the edges so there is no overhang when the cloche is placed on top.  No need to worry about the moss drying because the cloche acts as a greenhouse and keeps the moss moist.

Using your wire cutters trim the branches and stems of your faux spring flowers.  Cut them at various heights and make sure to trim them to fit inside the cloche.  You can make the arrangement full by adding more branches or keep it light and airy with just a few.

After the branches and stems are cut to size, it is time to make your arrangement.  Position the tallest branch in the middle of the moss then place the other branches and stems around it.  Push the stems and branches inside the moss and dirt for a secure hold.

You might have to play around with the flowers until you get an arrangement you like.

Once you have all the branches and stems in place, go ahead and place the cloche over your arrangement and display it in your home.


Tips for decorating with faux flowers:

  • Select faux flowers that are in season.
  • Buy flowers that have the closest color and texture to the real deal.
  • Add something live to your arrangement to trick the mind into thinking the fakes are real.
