DIY Cabinet Knob Cloche

First of all, I’d like to say THANK YOU to those of you who completed the survey yesterday.  If you didn’t get an opportunity to do that, I would appreciate it very much if you pop over to do the survey.   I’ll give you the link at the end of this post.

The participants yesterday averaged completion in under one minute.  See how savvy my readers are?  🙂

Last week while painting Tom Turkey to look like antique bisque, I included these two old brass cabinet knobs I had lying around.

It was just a whim with no plan in mind.  I knew I would use them on something eventually.  (Although, eventually  happened sooner than expected.)

A couple of days later, I stepped into our local Dollar Tree to find three more green stemmed glasses I needed to complete my set.  Who can go to Dollar Tree without strolling up and down each aisle to be sure you’re not missing something wonderful (and for only $1!)?  Are you with me on that?

I don’t know if these are vases, or what, but they caught my eye immediately.  The two painted knobs came to mind, so I took the glassware home to the Project Studio.

I roughed up the white knobs with sandpaper and searched for a glue that would hold well.  Yep, E-6000 is my favorite.

I squirted lots of glue in the knob stem and centered one on the bottom of each glass.

The glue needs to dry a while, so over night worked well.  After the glue was set, I decided to add a natural element – twine.

Every cloche needs a handle, right?  Why not put old cabinet knobs to good use?

A dessert or salad plate works well as a base.

This was such a quick and easy project.  And cheap, too, which is my favorite part!
