A Sassy Snow Lady: Repurposed Pier One Spheres

Greetings Friends!  I've mentioned before that I enjoy browsing our local Pier One. Sometimes I am inspired to create a knock off for less.  Others, I see inexpensive items that can be repurposed like these spheres turned sassy snow lady!

Have you noticed the variety of spheres PO carries?  When I saw the sparkly white ones, I instantly thought "snowman."  Mind you, this was before the vast population of snow people I have recently acquired thrifting--see others here!  However, since I had already grabbed one $2 and two $1 spheres, I was committed ;) First, I hot glued one of the small spheres to the larger one. Next, I glued the other small one on top as the head.

It wasn't until I started to dress my snow person, that I realized she was a sassy lady just waiting to be accessorized.  I added tinsel wire arms, a lace scarf, button brooch and burlap ribbon purse.  The bling on her brooch and purse are from a broken bracelet I kept for just such an occasion--you never know when you might need bling for a snow lady!

Now she needed a stylish hat...a wine cork topped with a felt bow and vintage beaded earring!

Last, I wrapped some tinsel around a small plastic lid to keep her from wobbling--voila!
