Disney Fan Spends 30 Hours Creating Beauty And The Beast Christmas Tree

A dedicated Disney lover spent 30 hours creating an impressive Beauty and the Beast themed Christmas tree.

Sian Teesdale, who is a huge Princess Belle fan spent eight hours a day for three days creating her own red and yellow decorations for the stunning tree.

As well as hand-painting baubles Sian also made rose baubles, red and yellow silk satin bows and a scarlet red skirt for underneath the tree.

We are honestly in awe of her dedication seen as though we can only just bear to throw some tinsel and fairylights onto our tree.

Alongside the personalised decorations Sian spent £120 on official Disney baubles and then dedicated six hours of her time to dressing the 7 foot tree.

The mum-of-one who is also a professional princess said: "Last Christmas was the first time I decided to look into having a Beauty and the Beast themed tree but this year I wanted it to be bigger and better.

"I couldn't find any yellow baubles so I had to paint loads of baubles myself to get them the same shade as Belle's dress.

"I stuck red roses to some baubles and glitter on others and made all the yellow and red bows.

"It didn't cost me a lot but it took me about 24 hours over three days to get all the decorations perfect.

"The Disney ornaments on the tree were quite expensive. I have ten in total and they cost about £10 to £12 each. Some of them are from Disneyland.

"I would love to have more. I'm collecting them as I go along.

"It then took me six hours to dress the tree so it's had a lot of time dedicated to it but I'm so happy with how it's turned out.

"I love it. I want to keep it up all year.

"I love how the yellow and red look. I think they're really Christmassy colours.

"This year's tree is Belle themed but it would be nice next year to do a blue and yellow tree as well for Beast.

"My little girl is too young to appreciate the tree just yet. She loves all the lights. I'm sure when she's a bit older she will be like 'wow mummy'."

Sian also named her one-year-old daughter Arabelle after her favourite princess and admits she has adored Belle since the age of four.

She added: "Since I was four years old, I have been obsessed with Disney and Belle has always been my favourite Disney princess.

"I just love Beauty and the Beast - its story and its message.

"Belle is so kind and she changes the Beast to be more kind. I love the message of not judging a book by its cover and how beauty is found on the inside.

"I love how strong Belle is and she doesn't just go for the hunky guy who loves himself.

"Instead she's all about reading books, learning new things, going on adventures and looking after her dad. She really cares about her family. It's lovely."
