I love to create my own holiday decor! There is something to personal and warm about homemade crafts. And I also think it is really important for the DIYs to be simple to make. Bonus points if they are versatile! I am so excited to share this craft project with you today because it is both simple and versatile! Wood slices are easy to work with, come in a variety of shapes and sizes, and add instant warmth to a space.
For this DIY project I designed a home decor craft that can be used during Autumn and Christmas by flipping over the wood slices to the current season. The glitter adds a fun sparkle, and with simple ingredients like glitter & glue this would be a fun weekend craft to do as a family.
Cloche is French for "bell" and is typically used to describe a glass cover used to protect plants. In this craft I have chosen to cover flameless candles for an extra holiday sparkle. Scroll down for step by step directions with a supply list!
3 Woodpile Birch Coasters
Glass Clock Domes, Two 3" x 5" and One 2" x 3"
Gloss Mod Podge
2 1/4" Mod Podge Brush or Paint Brush
Ivory LED Flameless Pillar Candle Set
Extra Fine Glitter, Disco
Extra Fine Glitter, Copper Penny
Apply a thin layer of Mod Podge with a brush over entire face of wood slice. Wipe off any excess glue on sides of birch wood slice.
Shake white disco glitter on wet glue, gently shake off any excess glitter onto scrap paper.
Tip: I chose white glitter because I love neutral Christmas decor. But if you'd prefer more color, try using green or red glitter!
Repeat glue & glitter steps for each birch wood slice. Allow wood slices to dry for at least 30 minutes.
Gently flip each wood slice so that the white glitter side is face down.
Brush on a layer of glue to each wood slice top. Shake on copper penny glitter. Gently shake off excess glitter. Repeat glue & glitter steps for each wood slice. Allow glue to dry for at least 30 minutes.
Gently place each LED flameless candle on center of each wood slice. Then place a glass dome over each candle. The shorter 2" x 3" dome will go over the smallest flameless candle.
Add a few favorite Autumn decor accessories along side your Autumn cloches and enjoy with the flameless candles on or off!
When Autumn transitions to Winter, simply remove the glass dome & flameless candles for a few minutes. Flip over the copper penny side to white. Place candles & glass domes on the white wood slices. Add a few favorite Christmas accessories or ornaments along side the cloches.
Decorating Tip: I accessorized my Christmas Birch cloches with this metallic acorn cluster ornament and a reindeer ornament.
