I was trying to figure out how to put some kind of knob on them when DH thought up the idea of using a washer painted white glued to the top of the shade and then glue the knob on top of that.
"Brilliant", I thought. I used a plate I already had and a candle holder I had in stock for one. For the other I bought a glass plate at GW for $.50 and gave the cloche and plate to a friend. The pictures distort the bubbles in the glass a little. They actually are clearer than that. I like the bubbles in the glass though. It is reminiscent of old-time glass. I was pleased with the way they turned out.
