In lieu of Disney’s Beauty and the Beast coming out soon, we have been busy making fun crafts and recipes to celebrate. Today we are sharing a beautiful and easy Enchanted Roses Bead Craft.
We just got some great beads from Oriental Trading Co. and I knew that they would be perfect to make miniature Enchanted Roses with. Oriental Trading Co. has a great selection of Valentine’s Day supplies. Be sure to check them out!
I started playing around with them and loved how it turned out, so I wanted to share them with you! I found the mini jars at Dollar Tree (they are Salt and Pepper Shakers). I used gold craft wire and the Valentine Seed Beads (1mm) in red to make the roses. Use the wire cutters to grip the end (without cutting it) to twist around a bit to make a “knot” to keep the beads from coming off. Then take the other end and string the beads onto the wire. I just dumped some of the beads into the lid of the bead jar, and push the wire into the bead. It went pretty fast. Once you have a few inches worth of beads on the wire, you will want to wind the wire up, creating a fun design to look like a rose. Keep the beads tight. Once you have the beaded part designed into a rose, you will take the remaining wire and thread it through the rose a couple of times, pulling it tight, to secure it all in place.
Now you have the rose part completed, you will take the wire cutters again and use them to twist a small part of the wire into a leaf. Once you have the Enchanted Rose finished, you will want to thread it through the holes on the lid, twisting the wire together like a twisty tie, after each one to keep it secure and tight. Trim the excess wire. Now screw the lid onto the jar and put it upside down so the rose is standing up. I used rub-on letters and designs on my jars to give them some personality and so my kids would know who’s jar was who’s. This was a lot of fun and each one only takes about 10 minutes. I would love to know how yours turns out!
