I am currently obsessed with glass cloches and luckily, since they are very trendy right now, I see them everywhere! So let’s talk about creative ideas for how to use a cloche in your own home!

How to Use a Cloche



What is a cloche?

French for bell, a cloche  (pronounced KLOHSH) is a small, translucent cover.  Originally intended to protect plants from frost, today’s use extends to using them for anything and everything.  Cloches are wonderful in that they can help to make any ordinary object into a display.  And you can easily swap out your display item depending on your mood or the season, so they are very versatile.


I have cloches throughout my home and change what I display depending on the season.  Sometimes I use feathers, sometimes books, or even holiday items!

I also have jewelry cloches from Pottery Barn that I love!  It’s nice to see my jewelry even when I’m not wearing it.

How to Use a Cloche

What else can you put under a cloche?  Pretty much anything that fits!  Plants, stacks of books, antique spectacles, cameras, seashells, baby keepsakes and sculptures all look great under a cloche.

Here are some inspirational pictures to get you thinking about how you might use a cloche in your home!
