Use strong glue, if you want the glass pieces to stick together permanently, or hot glue if you want a temporary hold.

Once the glue is dried, you have small stands that can be used to hold candles, cupcakes or anything else small.

To make a cloche, glue a glass cabinet pull to the bottom of a thrift store glass vase.  Once the glue dries, it's strong enough to use as a handle to lift the vase, now cloche.  For smaller cloches, use clear glass beads.

For a Thanksgiving table centerpiece, I filled the candle holders and cloches with candles- of course,
mini pumpkins, popcorn, a beautiful fall leaf held by a clothespin, and a cute turkey medallion.

I also added a strand of warm white fairy lights.

For the Christmas display I used, various Christmas scrapbook supplies- similar heremini Christmas trees, candles, a Santa figurine, Christmas bells, vintage wire bound numbers, Scrabble letters and epsom salt for snow.  I also used boxwood boughs (clipped from my bushes) and fairy lights.

This little toy car is one that my husband played with as a child.  I tied a mini tree to it with bakers twine.
