Hard work truly pays off.
You see one man wanted to do something special for his lovely wife so rather than buying her a simple gift. He got to work. Luckily he found some supplies at the local thrift store for his invention.
As he wanted to make the enchanted rose from beauty and the Beast. Following is the whole process with pictures so you can also make one yourself.
“Got lucky and found this clock at a local thrift store, Value Village.”
“Did this project while watching Super Smash Brothers Melee at Dream-hack.”
“I disassembled it. All i needed was the base and glass cover.”
“Spray painted the bottom with a glossy black. I had to do three coats.”
“Started to place the fairy lights (string of LEDs) into the rose and then wrapped it around the stem.”
“I had to cut the leaves to rearrange them.”
“The stem was malleable so I was able to get the right curves and fit it in well.”
“Lit it up to test it out. The fairy lights go to a battery pack that has a switch that can be ON of OFF or TIMER (6 hours).”
“It looked cool but it didn’t have the pinkish hue like in the movie.”
“Since I didn’t have any pink fairy lights, I used a permanent marker to cover it up.”
“Looked okay to me. At this point, if I recoloured all of the lights and it turned out bad, it would have been a major headache because I had already hot glued the rose in place to the base.”
“Looked like it turned out okay.”
“Wrapped the excess lights under the base. You can also see how I wrapped a bit of the stem for support then hot glued it to the base as well.”
“Colored the base of the stem black in hopes that it would appear invisible.”
“Colored the wiring between each light green to blend in.”
