Repurposed Inspiration: The Sea is Her Cup of Tea Pot Doll

the sea is her cup of tea feature

I got a fabulous deal on this vintage teapot and made another “Sea is her cup of tea” doll.  It is the perfect decoration for an eclectic beach cottage.

I have some cheap ping pong balls from Dollar Tree so I experimented by covering it with paper clay.  I used a mold to make the face and “smooched” it on the ping pong ball covering the whole ball with clay.  I let it dry overnight and painted the details.

Next I added a sheet music paper crown with moss details.  I used small shells and pearl beads to decorate the top.

I use a combination of E6000 and hot glue.  Hot glue holds the shell in place for the E6000 to set.  I call it gluing “now and later”. teehee

Old necklace chains and glass pendants hang from the spout for some whimsical decoration.
