Barbie's Gold Dipped Rose for Valentine's Day -DIY

There's a pretty famous jeweler here in Philadelphia named Steven Singer. Quite a few years ago he started marketing ~gold dipped real roses~ for Valentine's Day. Not only are they beautiful, they last a lifetime! Ken thought that was a pretty good bang for his buck and picked one up for Barbie this year:@) Since he was feeling rather smug with his gift choices he asked her to cover her eyes as he came through the door... She was thrilled!!!

Although she does admit to peeking a bitπŸ˜‰

My rose is a button with jewelry wire as the stem and leaf.
This button wasn't solid, it had holes in the center of the petals... 
I added some shiny gold from a gift bow to the back of the button and leaf for the pictures.
The stem and leaf were spray painted matt gold.
DIY candy heart from foam and beads here.
~Make something just for fun and have a Happy Valentine's DayπŸ’

I'm Joining:


  1. how lovely. I have several Danish jewelry pieces that have been dipped in silver and then gilded with real gold. The detail is amazing. Such a lovely custom and you did great in coming up with a facsimile!

  2. This is so cute and fun, Lynn, and your rose is so clever. I love peeking Barbie.


Thank you for stopping by!
