Wishing For Spring Pedestal

Call it wishful thinking but doesn't this little project lift your spirits? And because I can't grow a house plant to save my life, this little gem is faux and doesn't take any care! The all white color scheme also gives a nod to the snow we still have on the ground outside. I started by gluing a wood candle stick to a wood plate.
Next I gave everything a coat of paint. The tiny pot only got white washed but the pedestal got multiple coats. Then a good spray of matte sealer.
While that was drying, I assembled the plant. A tiny silk cluster of blossoms and sheet moss glued onto some foam in the pot.
I think I will be adding a wood disk to the bottom to prevent it being knock over. As it stands, it is a little unstable.
Just a little something to cheer me up as I pass by.......now I think I will get out my new seed catalog and do a little dreaming. Diana
