Beauty and the Beast Inspired

Hello bloggers, welcome to my creative blog.  Today I got very creative in my craft room after watching my all time favorite movie, Beauty and the Beast.  I love everything about the movie, the characters in the enchanted castle, the songs, the story, but most of all I love Belle's character.  She's smart, pretty, strong, loving, caring and kind.  Not to mention she has the most courageous Prince of all.


Here's the final project:
You will need to visit your dollar tree store to purchase the glass vase and cigarette glass tray.  The whole project will cost about three dollars!
You will need gold acrylic paint, about .33 cents at Michael's arts and crafts store and E6000 an all purpose clear glue, also at Michael's or Lowes and a fabric rose from the dollar tree store:
you will also need a small wood ball, like the one on the right, also from Michael's.  You will need to paint it with the gold acrylic paint like the one on the left:





Place the rose inside the vase and cut to size.  Spread some E6000 glue around the edge of the vase with a Q-Tip and place inside the glass cigarette tray.  Then glue the wooden ball on top and you're done! it's that easy.  Let the glue dry for a couple of hours.



here it is one more time:
and here it is next to my Lumiere, one of the characters in the movie:


Thanks for zooming by, I hope you liked this little project. Come back again for more Beauty and the Beast projects coming soon.
