Snowman light or candy dish

I love to make these little snowmen, they make such a cute Christmas decoration.  I decorate with purple for Christmas even the lights on my tree :)

The main base is a flowerpot painted and turned upside down.  Topped with a small glass bowl which I frosted the glass. Then I used the flower pot plate to go on top of the bowl as a lid and covered it with a flannel material and stuffed a plastic bag to pooch it up then tied it up and cut up a Pom Pom  top.  Then I added a pretty glittery snowflake ribbon to top her hat off.  The face is cut from vinyl for the eyes and mouth.  I didn't have orange vinyl so I just cut it out of card stock and just curved it with my pen until the stiffness wore out of it a little so it would adhere better to the bowl.  The cuts are  from a Creative Kuts filesnowman slider card.  The beautiful snowflake border and all of the little snowflakes you see adhered everywhere are a new set of metal die cuts I just won from My Craft Spot on a blog hop I attended.  I was so so very happy to be the lucky winner of these.  Oh all accept for the snowflake on top of the hat the I stamped with an adorable Peachy Keen snowman face (love), this one was from SCAL2 library.   Then I cut a bunch of the die cut snowflakes using purple glitter foam to add more dimension and sparkle and adhered them over the white ones and even added some tiny ones around on her cap.

Here she is with her little light on and her hat off
And one more all back together with her light on :)
I am placing this project in:
 Peachy Keen November 2013 Release Challenge #2 - Up-cycle something in your home (canister, cereal box, paper roll, etc.) into a Holiday decoration for your home. 
I have used a flower pot and a candy dish :)

This is adorable! How did you get the light to work? Did you use a lightbulb or is it just a battery operated candle? Thanks!
