With Beauty and the Beast arriving in theaters in less than a week, the internet has been hit by all kinds of fun Beauty and the Beast craft ideas. I think the most iconic Beauty and the Beast craft idea is a DIY bell jar. Don’t know what a bell jar is? It’s the super cool glass container that holds the enchanted rose in Beauty and the Beast.
I think a DIY enchanted rose would make awesome as decor for a Beauty and the Beast birthday party, Disney inspired wedding or any princess party. Now you can certainly buy a bell jar on Amazon but it will likely be glass and get expensive if you want more than one.
Since my crafts skew towards budget and kid friendly, I wanted to find an easy way to make as many DIY bell jars as you want without breaking the bank or worrying about glass breaking.
DIY Bell Jar Supplies
You can order all of the supplies on Amazon but I found the plastic glasses and ponytail holders my local dollar store. This DIY is so easy, I almost feel silly sharing a post about it. But on the off chance, you are reading this and it didn’t occur to you use plastic wine glasses. Your welcome.
Grab a glass and turn it over, then glue one of the clear beads to the bottom. That’s it. Obviously, you want to find a good shape/size of glass that fits your needs. My friend Amy made tiny bell jars for adorable enchanted rose cupcakes.
Beauty and the Beast Party Idea
I put a tiny rose inside my bell jar. You could set several enchanted rose displays as decorations or make one for each guest as a party favor. A fake rose, rose lollipop or even apple rose tart would also make fun options for a Beauty and the Beast party idea.
