I have no idea why these adorable Santa figurines were two for $1.00 at my local Dollar Tree, but who am I to pass up a great deal?  They’re just so cute!

(This post first appeared at Dollar Store Crafts, where you can find me every Tuesday.)

I ran through several ideas in my head, and in the end I decided to make an adorable Santa Christmas cloche.  Since my little Santa is a gardener, I plan to  place poinsettias or mistletoe in the cloche.  It would also look cute filled with ornaments, fake snow, or even cookies for Santa!

Materials Needed:

  • Santa Figurine
  • Glass bowl
  • Round wood plaque
  • Red paint
  • Glue

To make your own Santa Christmas Cloche:


Step 1:  Remove labels from glass and figurine.  Use E-6000 to glue Santa to the base of the bowl.

Step 2:  Paint the wood plaque red.

Step 3:  Set the cloche on top of the base.  Fill with treats, ornaments, flowers, etc.


No one will guess that everything came from the dollar store!  If you’re a hoarder deal-seeker like me, you probably purchased several little Santa figurines and can make lots of gifts with them, like this cloche or my mason jar.  Happy crafting!
