I made this Easter pedestal project last week.....
 When Sherry from Thrift My House did a guest post for us at the Inspiration Cafe on DIY Cake Plates and Pedestals, I was just in awe.  It was such a great post!  (I must not have been the only one who loved it, because that post has had over 3,000 pageviews at the Inspiration Cafe!)  Check out some of the projects she did a for us in that tutorial......
Stunning, right?  She is so talented and really, if you're not following her at Thrift My House, you are missing some great stuff!  The pedestal that caught my eye was that blue one, right in the middle.  Not because it's blue, but because I had a vase shaped just like it...and a rogue candlestick as well.  After following Sherry's easy tutorial, I gathered my newly made pedestal and a few supplies.....
.....a bag of moss, and some river stones.  I began to layer the rocks in the pedestal and tuck in some pieces of the moss that I had cut and decided to add a few little pieces of some faux floral buds for a splash of color.
I made sure I had a little level spot near the top to put  a rabbit figurine on......
.....and added a floral bow to the bottom for some spring color.....
Easy as can be and a fun addition to my own DIY Easter decor, which is rapidly growing.
So...hop on over to the Inspiration Cafe and see the post on DIY Cake Plates and Pedestals, and then head over to Thrift My House and follow Sherry so you don't miss any of her awesome and inspiring projects.  Thank you rock!!!
Oh...and if any of you think you might like to guest post for us at the Inspiration Cafe...let me know, we'd love to have you and who knows?....maybe your post will get 3,000+ page views!

  1. That is so pretty and dainty! Love how you layered the river rocks. Don't see them that flat where you can actually sit a cute little bunny on top.Love it!

  2. Wow! This is beautiful. Thank you for sharing with us. Blessings, Patti

  3. As always, your work is so amazing. You are one talented lady. Beautiful!

  4. So festive! I need to try this sometime :)

  5. I really admire the way you've layered these rocks & moss, that's not easy to do and yours really ended up so natural and cute.

    I've been made fun of because of the 30 or so cheese domes I have in my basement. They're all patiently waiting to be made into fancy pedestal cloches. As I always say "Everything looks more important under a glass dome!"

    (That cheese dome, etc. pile in my basement could have been a contender in the Junk in the Trunk bonanza. There's probably even a stray can of Budweiser down there.)

  6. The timid little hare peeking from the green moss and the river rocks is adorable. I must admit after reading the post on the pedestals, I played around with my vases and cheese domes. Will vases and cheese domes ever be the same again?

  7. Your cake plates are lovely. I'm visiting from he hop and am now following you.

  8. LOVE LOVE LOVE! I am so into cloches right now! I am working on a post to share my latest editions right now. They add so much charm to your home.
