And what exactly is a "Bunny's Pedestal", you ask? Well I'll show...
but first let me introduce you to the bunnies.
Are these not the cutest little bunny rabbits you've ever seen?
I knew I wanted to make them part of my Easter decor, but because of their miniature stature, they would need something to help them have more presence.
I had recently made a custom purse for a customer from my Etsy shop, and used this beautiful quatrefoil patterned fabric. So that was my jumping off point. I rifled through my other craft supplies and came up with these components...
I cut the two largest circles the same size - they would become the top of the pedestal. The other four were progressively smaller - they would become the base of the pedestal. I made the initial cut with my Fiskars cutting tool, but due to the thickness of the chipboard, I had to finish the cuts with a pair of scissors. ( I could have done this much easier with my Cricut, but I have yet to purchase a deep-cutting blade).
Now, all the steps above were done about a week ago. Then, my poor little unfinished pedestal, had to sit around and wait for the weather to get warmer, so the next step could be completed.
Finally, yesterday, the temperature got above 65, and my little pedestal got a couple coats of white spray paint.
Using fabric glue, I ran a bead of glue around the thin
edge of the chipboard and attached the trim.
I can't wait to put together my Easter decor and set them in a Place of Honor.
I think after the holiday, this will also make a perfect little Cupcake Stand.
