Today we're going to make a DIY version of the evil queen's heart box. When you're project is finished, you can choose to store anything you like inside. Jewelry? Candy? Disneyland tickets?
The Heart Box is a small red jeweled box that appeared in the film Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs. It belonged to the Evil Queen, who gives it to the Huntsman to put Snow White's heart in after he kills her. But the Hunstman cannot go through with this evil task so he instead spares her life and urges the kind princess to flee into the forest to escape the Queen's wrath. The Huntsman then puts the heart of a pig inside the box instead to fool the Queen. When she finds out from the Magic Mirror that she is holding the wrong heart, she is furious and storms into her secret laboratory among the dungeons inside her Castle, and tosses the box to the floor.
The Heart Box is a small painted red hope chest with the golden latch resembling a conventional heart symbol with a gold dagger embedded with green jewels on it piercing through the heart.
The $5 wooden box that I am using today is from Hobby Lobby. We are going to draw the design on first using pencil, then we will fill in the design using acrylic paint. Once it's dry, seal it in a coat of Mod Podge.
The poison apple is a classic Disney symbol, now you can make your own!
The Dollar Tree has apple shaped wooden boxes.
All you need is acrylic paint!
Standing proudly at the center of Fantasyland, King Arthur Carrousel is one of the original opening day attractions at Disneyland park. The antique carrousel is hand carved, hand painted and maintained by skilled artisans.
I bought 20x26 art canvas because I really wanted some Disney art on the walls. I first sketched Mickey with a pencil, then in stages, I began painting in his image with acrylic paints. Here is what the process looked like.
Growing up in Los Angeles in the 70s/80s we visited Disneyland on a regular basis and often after school, before "Annual Passes".
