How excited are you for the live action Beauty and the Beast movie? While Alice in Wonderland will always hold the number one spot in my heart, I do love Beauty and the Beast. Belle is nerdy and inquisitive but show true strength time and time again. This is why I am so excited that Beauty and the Beast is the focus of this month’s Movie Monday Challenge! The rose is such a quintessential part of the story and that’s why this DIY Beauty and the Beast enchanted rose cloche was the obvious choice for me!

Remove all of the packaging from the cloche.
Set the dome off to the side.
Pull the leaves off of your rose.
Cut your rose stem so that it is shorted than the dome of your cloche.
- For my rose this was right under the highest bunch of leaves.
Bend your rose into the shape of the rose from Beauty and the Beast. See the picture above if you need a refresher.
Trim some of the petals off of your rose.
- You only need 2 petals for the remainder of the project. However, my rose was too full so I trimmed more petals than that off.
Glue a small leaf to the stem of your rose as pictured.
Attach the bottom of your rose stem to the center of your cloche base with hot glue.
- This will take a lot of glue.
- You need to hold your stem upright while the glue cools.
- You also need to continue adding glue until your rose is stabilized.
After your glue is dried you may need to readjust your rose slightly. Check the cloche and make sure that the rose isn’t touching the sides. If it is, bend your stem slightly.
Trim 2 of your cut off rose petals so that the edges are rounded.
Use the trimmed petals to cover the glue at the base of the stem.
Place the dome back on the base of the cloche.
Cut the bottom of your drawer pull with the wire cutters so that it sits flush against the top of your dome.
Glue your drawer pull to the top of your dome.
This is so elegant. If you want to up the magic you can add fairy lights to the inside but I love the classic and elegant look of simply the rose. A DIY Beauty and the Beast enchanted rose cloche is the perfect way to add some covert nerd décor to your home.

I’m a nerdy, crafty mom of three adorable little kids. I love writing and creating, but in my non-existent free time I also love karaoke, taking my kids to the zoo, and reading. I got my degree in Science (no idea how that happened) but I took every English class I could get my hands on because, yeah, I’m that girl.
