The Christmas Cloche

Very close relative of the popular snowglobe, a glass cloche (or dome) is an incredibly simple and effective way to create an eyecatching display. Fill with a string of fairy lights for instant magic or place a collection of different size cloches on a mantelpiece for instant glamour.
