Who is excited for the release of the new Beauty and the Beast?? I AM!!! I can’t wait to see this movie, and I adore Emma Watson, so it’s going to be fabulous. To celebrate the upcoming release, this month for the Movie Monday Challenge, we chose this movie to act as inspiration for a recipe, DIY project or craft. I’m so happy to share with you the easy steps I took to make my Beauty and the Beast Inspired Rose Cloche.
We watched the Disney cartoon version of the move last weekend and my husband confessed to me that Beauty and the Beast is in fact, his favourite of all the Disney princess movies, so this little project was extra special because of that.

Here’s what my Beauty and Beast Cloche started off as. Yep! A 2L bottle of Cream Soda. FYI- The kids LOVED this project.
I started off by cutting the bottom off the pop bottle using an exacto knife. I then cleaned up the edges using some sharp scissors.
I then cut the top off as well. For this step, it’s best to use just the exacto knife, since I ended up scratching up the inside of the bottle trying to use the scissors.
For the base of the cloche, I wanted it thick, so I glued two scrap pieces of plywood together. This is not the highest grade plywood out there. I just used what I had on hand. Once it was dry, I traced a circle on the wood.
Here is my cloche base, which was cut out using my jigsaw.
I then took the base outside and gave it a good sanding.
I considered staining the base, but eventually opted to spray paint it. The sides were not at all pretty, so I covered them with my marble contact paper that I’m currently obsessed with.
The next step was drilling a small “not too deep” hole in the middle of the base. Don’t worry about me doing this on my counter. The battery in my drill was nearly dead, so it was a very slow process.
**No counters were harmed in the making of this project.**
The last step was measuring the height I wanted for the rose and cutting the stem. This was the only item I purchased for this project. Not too shabby for $1.25!
The top was simply taken from my daughter’s empty bottle of bubble bath, and it fit perfectly in the hole on top.
This fun little Beauty and the Beast inspired rose cloche fits right in with the Spring pink tones I have going on at the moment.
Wouldn’t these be so cute as a table centerpiece for a party or Mother’s Day perhaps? Thank you so much for checking out my little project. Now, let’s see what my blogging friends have come up with for their Beauty and the Beast Inspired recipes and crafts.
See you next time my friends,
