Are you looking for some Valentine’s Day decor ideas and inspiration? Today I’m sharing 7 cloche ideas for Valentines’ Day based on this month’s “Pinterest Challenge”.
Valentine’s Day Cloche & Pinterest Challenge
Are you ready for another Pinterest Challenge? If this is your first time hearing about the Pinterest Challenge, let me explain. Every month, our fabulous host Cindy from County Road 407, selects an inspiration photo for everyone to recreate. Each participant puts their own spin on the photo, according to each of our individual and unique styles of decorating.
If you’re hopping over from Kristin at White Arrows Home‘s blog, welcome! I’m so glad you’re here. Didn’t you love her vintage Valentine card cloche? And you won’t want to miss my other friends at the end of this post for even more inspiration.

Our inspiration photo this month comes from Birgit of Crafting While I Wait. Isn’t this the sweetest Valentine’s Day cloche? I’m loving every last detail here.
Items To Incorporate
I always try to use as many of the same elements as possible from the inspirational photo. But at the same time, I wanted to use just what I had at home for this challenge and see what I could come up with. I wanted to include:
- Glass cloche
- 2 hearts
- White buttons
- Ribbon for the top of the cloche
SHOP GLASS CLOCHES
As much as I wanted to have a vintage theme for my Valentine’s cloche I just didn’t have anything in the house that would fit inside. So I improvised.
Trust me. I will definitely be on the lookout for some vintage Valentine postcards and some other fun things for next year.
I have no idea where I found this wire heart but it was the main focal point in the cloche.
I’ve had the wooden heart ornaments for a few years now and got them at a local shop. I do have a collection of lace and knit doilies so I used one of them here placed on a marble cheese board.
SHOP WOODEN HEART ORNAMENTS
SHOP VINTAGE DOILIES
To get that second heart, I cut some scrapbook paper I had into 3 heart shapes and glued them to each other.
SHOP VALENTINE’S DAY SCRAPBOOK PAPER
Other Valentine’s Day Cloche Ideas
Succulent Love Cup Cloche
This was about as easy of Valentine’s cloche idea as you can possibly get.
I found this “Love” cup with faux succulents in HomeGoods for $4.99.
SHOP SUCCULENT CUPS
Transferware Cup Cloche
Here I used 2 red and white transferware cups with some decorative rosettes I put on my Christmas tree this last year.
I finished the look by adding moss leftover from last spring’s decor and Scrabble tiles to spell out the word “love”.
White Chocolate Strawberry Cloche
These smaller cloches always look great in the kitchen but it can be hard to find items small enough to fit inside.
These faux white chocolate-dipped strawberries were bought for last year’s Valentine’s Day tablescape and I thought they’d be fun in this smaller cloche.
SHOP CHOCOLATE COVERED STRAWBERRIES
Cup of Pink Flowers Cloche
This black and white patterned cup is filled with faux pink flowers. Moss is sprinkled along the bottom. I only wish this picture would have turned out better. It looks so much better in person.
SHOP BLACK AND WHITE PATTERNED CUPS
SHOP PINK FAUX FLOWERS
Pink Flower Ball Cloche
This is a simple Valentine’s cloche idea but really brings a pop of color to any vignette.
Here’s a picture without the cloche so you can see the flower ball in more detail.
SHOP FAUX SUCCULENT BALLS
The Neutral Cloche
This one is my favorite. It doesn’t have any reds or pinks like typical Valentine’s Day decor would have but it still makes a statement.
SHOP THIS LOOK
The sheet of music scroll and rosettes were leftover from our Christmas decor.
In fact, I used every detail from this cloche in at least one of the others.
Below is a picture of all the elements without the cloche cover.

Aww Kim these are all adorable. I just took some screenshots so I can refer to your ideas in valentines day. <3
Kristin | White Arrows Home says
These are all so beautiful Kim! I can’t pick a favorite!! That sweet little cloche with the strawberries! I don’t know if I’ve ever seen a little cute one like that! Love the stacked teacups!!! You always inspire me!
Thank you, Kristin. It was a lot of fun to make these. I have never styled cloches before for Valentine’s Day.
How on earth can I choose a fave when you offer so many creative ideas?? The two that stand out to me are the one with the paper scrolls leftover from Christmas and the transfer were teacups> Great ideas Kim! Pinned ?
Thank you, Cindy. Those seem to be the two favorites. I need to get more of the music scrolls. I really love them.
Kim, you have so many great cloche ideas! I pinned several of them. I have the big round wood tray from Magnolia too, and love it. It’s so versatile and I enjoyed seeing how you styled it.
Niky @ The House on Silverado
Thank you, Niky! I really appreciate you pinning. We need all the help we can get these days, right? I do love our round wooden tray. I love how everything looks in it and the price was right!
Melba | Cocoon Raw says
Kim, I have the same wooden tray and loved it so much that I made a table out if it. But now that I see it as a tray and so beautiful, I am taking it back! Love the way you styled it! Beautiful ideas!
Thank you, Melba. I really love that tray and use it all the time!
You are so clever!
Love all these ideas rock star!
I love it when someone calls me clever and that I have rock star ideas. You’ve made my day sweet friend.
Kim, I love all 7 of your creative cloche designs. Really, you outdid yourself. You used so many great ingredients in every vignette. I can’t pick a favorite.
That is such a nice compliment, Carol. I really appreciate it and it’s always so fun to do these with you.
MaryJo Materazo says
I love all your cloche inspo Kim! So many great vintage touches from the transferware to the doilie. I also love anything with sheet music. The grapevine heart totally got me tho- anything with a rustic, organic vibe always stops me in my tracks. Have a great day. XO- MaryJo
Thank you MaryJo. This was actually a really fun challenge.
Laura Ingalls Gunn says
Oh Kim there are so many wonderful ideas in your post! I adore the neutral post and of course the red transferware. bravo!
That is so sweet of you Laura. Thank you so much.
Julie Briones says
I DO love that neutral one at the end, Kim. It’s very inspiring. I tried to go more neutral with mine, but it got away from me! LOL! As always, love hopping with you! Pinned!
My favorite too. But I think you made a great decision to use color in yours. It was really beautiful Julie.
Lora Bloomquist says
Beautiful ideas, but the transferware cups with the scrabble letters is my favorite! Argh, now I want red and white transferware! If I find any for a good deal…;) Love that new sofa, btw; thought something looked different in your living room!
I was so excited when I found that red and white transferware. We bought a new couch in November and I was a little nervous because I’ve never gotten anything like that before but we are loving it!
I love all of your creative Valentine cloche! The one you designed for the challenge with the sheet music is my favorite. Great improvisation!
Thank you so much, Amber. It was so much fun!
Michelle | Thistle Key Lane says
I just adore the knit doily under the cloche Kim. It’s a small detail, but it is just so pretty. I don’t know how you come up with so many fabulous ideas, but if I had to pick a favorite it would be the stack of tea cups. Pinning!
Thank you, Michelle. I have a stack of vintage doilies and have never used them so glad I was able to incorporate it for today’s challenge. Thank you for the kind words, my friend.
Rachel Harper says
Your valentine’s cloches are all stunning. Love the music notes especially.
Thank you, Rachel.

Oh my golly, I can’t choose a favorite! You have such creativity and you know I’m going to adore anything that’s pink. You cloche looks perfect with your new pillows and pink accents. Thank you for joining in.
Thank you, Cindy. I do like how everything matches my new pillows. I love them so much. This was a really fun challenge. Always so fun to join you all,.
You have so many unique and beautiful cloche ideas Kim! I’m partial to the one with the red transferware cups and moss, but they’re all fantastic!
Thank you so much, Cindy. I do like that I was able to show something with red in it with the transferware. Everything I had seemed to be pink.
Each cloche that you shared is so pretty. Since you didn’t have a vintage Valentine’s card to use, you were smart to make one using scrapbook paper.
Thank you, Paula. I am definitely going to try to find some vintage cards for next year.
I love all of your variations! What great ideas for Valentine’s Day!
Thank you so much, Laura. This was so much fun and I loved everyone’s interpretation.
