When I was six Beauty and the Beast came out in theaters. That day started my obsession with all things Disney, and my twenty-some year love affair with Belle and her story. I quickly learned all the words to all the songs and I may know all the words to the movie as well. The bookish girl who wanted adventure was my spirit animal and I wished nothing more as a six year old girl to be her.
My room, in my parents house, was decorated from floor to ceiling in pink Beauty and the Beast wallpaper and bedsheets. Through the years I collected a ton of memorabilia to decorate my room, my favorite being a porcelain Belle doll that my parents gave me and a giant puzzle that my dad and I glued together and put in a frame. The one thing that was always missing though, was an enchanted rose of my very own. Which is why I had to make this Beauty and the Beast Enchanted Rose Art, because it makes the little kid inside of me jump for joy!

The one thing I loved about Belle was how she never cared what other people thought of her. The entire town thought she was odd because of how much she loved books but that didn’t stop her from being true to herself and continuing to do what she loved.
As I’ve gotten older I’ve realized just how unique and special those qualities are in people and that we should all strive to be more like that. Belle was a unique Princess for her time and that is one reason why I love her so much. It wasn’t about marrying the Prince for her, it was about saving her father. She put the needs of others above herself and taught a very selfish Prince to do the same. She is awesome. And brave. And selfless.
I love that Disney is coming out with live action movies now and bringing a new life to my favorite classics. Currently I’m geeking out that there’s only a little more than a month left until the movie comes out and I just can’t hold back on my Beauty and the Beast crafts any longer! The first one I can’t wait to share is perfect for both the movie and Valentine’s Day! Because who doesn’t love a rose?
Make your own Beauty and the Beast Enchanted Rose Art with your Silhouette!
- Silhouette Cameo
- Wood Stain
- Red Glitter
- Permanent Vinyl
- Transfer Paper
+ Stain your piece of wood and set it aside (I bought mine at the Target Dollar Spot before Valentine’s Day).
+ Cut out your Beauty and the Beast Enchanted Rose File (bought on Etsy) and weed it! I like to have the original image up on my computer so I can make sure I’m weeding the right tiny pieces.
+ Lay a piece of transfer tape over your enchanted rose file and rub it roughly with your finger. Slowly pull up the transfer paper and make sure your design is coming with it. If it doesn’t try laying the transfer paper back down, rub it again, and then try to pull it back up. Continue doing this until all of your design is on the transfer paper.
+ Line up your design on the wood and then lay it down. Rub the transfer paper on the wood and then slowly peel it up. Make sure your design is sticking to the wood when you do! Otherwise you need to lay the paper back down and continue rubbing the transfer paper with your finger until your entire design sticks to the wood.
+ Use your glue to trace the white vinyl rose and sprinkle glitter on top of it. Make sure you use as little glue as possible at this point, you don’t want to overdo it. Then you can sprinkle the glitter on the inside of the rose or on the outline, whatever you like better!
I think this Beauty and the Beast Enchanted Rose art is so sweet and would be so cute in a little girls’ room (or my future office! haha).
What do you think? Would you keep this enchanted rose art for yourself or would you use it for something else?
