One thing I really wanted from Disney World was some sort of Beauty & The Beast rose souvenir. Unfortunately, they were all either really expensive, really fragile, or both. No practical way to get one home in my luggage. I made the responsible choice to hold off.

So fast forward a few months and I find this ugly, non-functional old mantle clock that’s been sitting in our kitchen for years. I took the dome and the brass base and cleaned them off a bit, and it hit me. I could make my own rose! I found the rose itself at Michaels, and with a coupon it was like, three bucks. The mirrored tray on the bottom came from the dollar store. The LEDs are battery-powered and I got them off eBay for 1.89. The “handle” on the bell jar is an acrylic crystal I had lying around. The whole project cost me less than ten bucks, and I think it’s beautiful!
