Do you want a DIY Beauty and the Beast Rose? With just a couple of items from Dollar Tree, you can easily make this for your home.

When my daughter was turning 16 a couple of years back she wanted to see the new movie “Beauty and the Beast”. She watched that movie all the time when she was little and after Harry Potter, she is a huge Emma Watson fan! I wanted to make a couple of decorations for her birthday.  With a vase, candle holder, some dollar store flowers and petals, and a little glue I made her the famous rose in a cloche from the movie.

Sometimes you just don’t want the standard bouquet of flowers, and this is one alternative option.

DIY Beauty and the Beast Rose Instructions

First, you’ll need to pick the flower from the bouquet that you like the most. Cut it off with the wire cutters.

Using the wire cutting pliers, you'll need to bend the bottom of the wire - this will be how you glue the rose to the plate to help it free stand.

You’ll need to watch as it cools to see if and where you might need to add more hot glue to build a good base to help the rose stand free.

Once you have the rose in place, let the glue cool completely.

To hide the glue at the bottom of the rose, pull apart one of the other roses from the bouquet.

You’ll do this by pulling the bud off the stem, and then pulling the green plastic apart to free the petals. If your petals are connected, you can use scissors to cut the petals apart and shape them as you desire.

Alternatively, you can buy 1 package of rose petals from Dollar Tree as well.

Use the rose petals to cover the glue holding the free-standing rose in place.

If you are at all concerned about the vase not being secure on your candle holder dish, you can glue it to them together by using hot glue, E6000, or another adhesive of your choice.

My daughter was so pleased with her decoration and loved how the petal gave the illusion that it was falling off. When her birthday was all said and done, she decided she wanted to keep it.

  1. Love the rose! Your daughter is a lucky girl to have such a creative Mom!

    I love this idea! I was not aware that the dollar store sold bags of rose petals.

    1. Thanks Mary Ann and yes, they’re great for so many projects, gifts, etc. Love them πŸ™‚

    I absolutely L-O-V-E this! Belle was always who I would choose when my daughter used to ask me who my favorite princess was. I’d give the reasons that she had brown hair & eyes just like I did plus she could take care of herself & cared about what was on the inside of people’s hearts & not on their outside. I’d tell her that’s the way we all should be & need to be to have a happy world. She is now 18 yrs old & listened to that advice & other things I taught her growing up. Now sometimes she amazes me by teaching me about life. Anyway thank you again for the idea I plan on making it to put on the shelf between the surprisingly large sized Mrs. Potts & Chip she once got in a McDonald’s Happy Meal. Bless you dear.

    1. Thank you so very much Wanda and thank you for sharing all of that. It has touched my heart and I love all the characteristics you point out. Our daughters are very close in age, mine will be turning 18 this coming April πŸ™‚ I’m thrilled you want to give this a try and oh how sweet to put it next to Mrs. Potts and & Chip – I think we might have that same set too πŸ™‚ Sending hugs to you
