Beauty and the Beast Rose DIY… 

One of my lovely old neighbours had made this for his little girl and I was in love, such a simple idea but for a Beauty and the Beast mad Amber I’m hoping this present will go down well! 

You will need:

  • Glass dome
  • 2 fake red roses 
  • LED wired lights 
  • Super glue 
  • Drill

First off peal back the petals on one of your roses and start winding the LED lights around, work the lights through the layers of petals until you reach the final layer. Then work the lights down the stem. 

Take your other rose and peal the leaves off and using the super glue cover the lights and wires to create a green stem again. 

Drill a hole in the bottom of your base and position the rose, bend the rose to shape and glue in place.

Cover the wires with strategically placed leaves and petals, sprinkling a couple more for good measure, again glue in place. 

You could also thread the wire through the drilled hole before winding round the rose, you’d need to then make a groove on the base for the wire to run underneath so the dome sits steadily. I decided against it as I wanted petals on the base anyway. 

Voila a pretty replica… 

I cannot wait to give this to Amber, this years presents are a tad Disney mad with all the gorgeous bits I’ve nabbed in Primark. Let me know if you give this a go, I’d love to see! 

Amber’s big girl bedroom…

Amber has recently moved into the larger bedroom so I could move most of her toys upstairs and so eventually she can share her bedroom with her little brother. 

Obviously her side of the bedroom is super girly with lots of pink, lace and about a million bows! 

So as you can see this bench (which still needs a seat cushion) is where the room changes to unisex with the greys, I’m looking forward to making a start on the boy side and think I’ll go for either grey and yellow or grey and red, I can’t decide which just yet! But think these biscuit cushions tie in fairly well so that the room will still flow.
