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.
Through the years I have sold vintage teapot dolls….each one of a kind with their own personality!
