You may already know this, but. . .

. . .just in case you don't:

If you have a very large glass vessel (or, let's say, a cloche) that you want to fill with items that are fairly expensive, or you just run short of enough of the things to fill up the cloche (for example: this 20-inch cloche and the faux candy hearts), insert a glass cylinder, like a jelly jar, clear glass vase or chimney, and slip the items be between the cloche and the chimney.

Hope this makes sense.

And now that I've seen what this looks like in a photograph, I running to get some pink ribbon to tie around the top knob!

OA, wondeful creation. Using something to take us space in there shows more of your talent coming out. I have alot of candy hearts and this looks so fun. I will see if DGD wants to make one. The ribbon gave it the finished look. So cute.

Thanks for sharing and I may have one to share with you later!

OA, are you saying that your candy hearts are faux candy hearts? If so, may I ask where you found fake ones??? TIA if you care to share the info. Your cloche is just perfect!

KarenMO,
I got them at Oriental Trading. It's a big outlet used by elementary teachers for classroom treats and rewards. Link is below. I got 2 bags last year right after Valentine's Day and and two bags this year, at the end of January.
I see they are on sale now. Go for it.

Here is a link that might be useful: Foam bead conversation hearts

OA, thanks for sharing this site with us. DGD had no interest in making anything this weekend. She will probably ask me to dig out all my stuff next time she's spending the weekend with us and it will be packed far away.LOL
