Christmas and Disney what could be better?
These pint sized enchanted rose jars are too cute not to share. This design came about while preparing for a christmas craft fair. I needed more Holiday items to add to my stock, which is primarily event decor. I am a huge disney fan, especially Beauty and the Beast, I have many variations of the enchanted rose so it seemed fitting to add an ornament version to my arsenal. Let me know what you think in the comments section as well as any other pieces you would like to see.

Supplies Needed

  • Mini domes and base
  • Small red roses
  • Wire cutters or Leatherman tool
  • Scissors
  • Glitter paint
  • Embroidery thread for hanging
  • Clear marbles
  • Hot Glue
  • Glue Gun
  • Drill with small Drill bit
  • Mini string lights

 



Gather all of your supplies and protect your work space if needed, the drill and lights are optional.
To begin you will need to trim your roses to fit into the domes, I recommend using wire cutters or a Leatherman tool to do this.
If you plan to add lights to your finished piece drill a small hole in the base.
Peel the outer petals off of another rose and trim with scissors to desired shape and size.
                `
Adhere the stem of the rose to base of your dome and hold in place until glue sets.
Now glue the petals to the base, I prefer to do three petal, feel free to do as many or as few as you would like.
If you are adding lights, feed the lights through the hole in the base and gently coil the wire to make them fit nicely under the dome.
Using a 1 ½’’ paint brush apply a relatively thick layer of glitter glue to the bottom of your dome, switching to small angled brush drag the edges of the glue upward to create a fade.
While the glue is still wet attach dome to the base being mindful of the placement of your wire. Touch up anywhere that glue has poured over the edge of the base.
Allow glue to dry completely to avoid smudging.
Trim you embroidery floss to 8-10’’ sections.
Apply a dab of adhesive to the top of the dome, lay embroidery floss over the glue and top with a marble to create the top of the “cloche”
Tie off the embroidery floss to create a loop for hanging
Voila!
