DIY Lumiere

So I have started on the props for Alyssa’s Beauty and the Beast party (yes, yes I know her birthday isn’t until March…but last minute running around drives me crazy so I start early) 😁  

The first character I started was Lumiere. Lyss helped me pull this Christmas candle holder apart.

  
Our demolishin side came out and we had a lot of fun pulling, twisting and prying the pieces off lol. After it was completely dissembled I twisted the smaller bar so it would be shaped like Lumiere’s arms and glued it with permanent E6000 glue so it would stay put.

 
Then I shaped his body with air dry clay. 

 
After everything was dried I spray painted him gold and added some battery operated lights and voila! Lumiere has come to life!
