Make Your Own Cloche – DIY Talent House of Hepworths

Oh my goodness, I can’t contain my excitement!!! Here she comes: Allison from House of Hepworths. If Aretha is the Queen of Soul, Allison is the Queen of DIY!

Allison has been making over her home one DIY project at a time. She is in her third year of blogging about the transformations.

Won’t you please welcome Allison to the DIY Talent Parade!

Hey guys! I’m Allison from House of Hepworths, a Home Blog that specializes in DIY projects and renovations, crafts, and decorating.


This is my family and me. 🙂

I’m super excited to be guest blogging today here at Pretty Handy Girl because Brittany is super cool and I’m glad to call her my friend.

Today I’m going to show you how to make your own chic custom Cloche, but before I begin the tutorial I start by sharing a few HoH projects that have been fan favorites. You may have even seen a few of these around pinterest.

Simply click on each picture to see the full tutorial.

My most popular post ever is for making Cupcake Cones:

My How to make a super cheap curtain rod post has the 2nd most pageviews on my blog, but the How to make curtains post has the most pins on pinterest.

And finally, another hugely popular post has been a tutorial on painting perfect lines on a wall:

Now that you’ve gotten to know me a litte better, I want to share with you today how to turn a boring thrifted cheese dome into your own chic custom cloche (doesn’t that sound so fancy?!) that all your friends will be drooling over.

Making your own cloche is about the easiest DIY project you can tackle. All you need are two items, preferable thrifted (to save you money!):

A Pretty Candle Stick and a Cheese Dome!

Using a strong glue, adhere the candle stick to the under side of the cheese dome, like this:

If you are using Gorilla Glue like I did, be aware that as it dries is GROWS. A LOT. So use less than you think you need!

Once your glue is dry, spray paint it with a coat of primer and then my favorite color, Rustoleum’s Oil Rubbed Bronze. Fill it with some mini fake fruit and call it a day.

For even more contrast bright sunny lemons are a great pick as well!

I hope you’ve enjoyed learning how easy it is to make your own beautiful cloche! I’d love for you to stop by House of Hepworths any time and say Hi. I love visitors!

Brittany, thank you so much for having me here at Pretty Handy Girl! It’s been so much fun being a part of this DIY Talent Parade! I can’t wait for the Link Party next Friday!!

Wasn’t that a gouda transformation? Okay, I agree, I think it was a grate (errr, I mean great!) transformation?! Who knew a cheese dome and candlestick, when married, create adorable cloche offspring.  I know exactly what I’ll be looking for next time I’m at Goodwill.

A special thank you to the Queen of DIY, Allison from  House of Hepworths.

And now, if my eyesight doesn’t deceive me, is that?…can it be?…why yes!…It is Kelly from The Pink Hammer Blog. Oh my goodness, wait until you see what she has planned for her performance.
