Didn't mount the DHT 22 in the CM15 as that would be too hot.
Currently it is just hanging out the bottom of the case about 3 inches untill I find something to place it in yet not effect its readings.
I have a AM2302 I plan to use for my off grid  pi/cm15 but not sure if I'll add it to the out side case or have it a bit away from the Cm15 mounted to a small short piece of white plastic pipe.

If it's measuring conditions inside, you don't need to put it in anything since it already includes an enclosure.  If you wanted to put it in something as an enclosure, I would recommend the BME280 and a simple container like a contact lens box with holes or similar.  These are low voltage devices so the enclosure isn't important.  Being that it's a DHT, you could just put it on the side with sticky tape.  Then again, since you opted for the model with the extra board, you will probably want to figure something to hide that.  It would be easiest if you desoldered the board and put some leads on it such that the board went inside and just heat shrink/electrical tape the exposed contacts where the leads were soldered on.

Good Idea, there is a cool spot on the case. I have a few DHT11 sensors (if I can find them) that I can tear down as a trial run. ;)

Just had a thought -:)
Since it realy is only the board that I need or want protected, what about using liquid electical tape?
I have some in Black but they do have it in white. It may even work to glue the sensor to the case. ::) :'
It certainly saves looking for a case or more solder work.
