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!

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

Step 1

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.

Step 2

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!

Step 3

Repeat glue & glitter steps for each birch wood slice. Allow wood slices to dry for at least 30 minutes.

Step 4

Gently flip each wood slice so that the white glitter side is face down.

Step 5

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.

Step 6

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!

Decorating Tip: I accessorized my Autumn Birch cloches with these brown & copper pinecone ornaments.

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.
