Fall Decor with a Bell Jar

Contents Under Glass


The cloche, or bell jar, was developed by the French to protect a new garden plant and help it to mature. Made of glass, a cloche is used today in home decor in unlimited ways. They come in various sizes and shapes, but traditionally are bell-shaped. I tend to refer to them as bell jars.

I have used my bell jar with a beautiful bird’s nest under it. My bell jar came from Arhaus and my cute bird’s nest was a score from HomeGoods.

To give it a Fall look, I simply tied a plaid ribbon around the handle. The colors of this ribbon are perfect to give it the classic look of Fall. I love this ribbon because it is wired, which gives the bow this great full look!


A simple look can be created by using it with something like these acorns that I found at JoAnn Fabric. I arranged them on my milk glass cake stand and placed the bell jar on top. Simple, yet elegant!

Here is another great Fall look…place the apples under glass and arrange the bell jar with some great pottery and pumpkins. For this bow, I did a simple tie and created “creases” in the wire ribbon.

Bell jars are classic and will work in any style of decor. They are great because the look can be easily changed by simply switching out the contents underneath! They’re an awesome item to be used at the various holidays because they are so basic and can be incorporated into any look you need…pumpkins in Fall, glass ornaments at Christmas, easter eggs at Easter…the ideas are endless!
