Spring Bird Pedestal

 Happy Spring! I hope you are enjoying the sunshine where you are and that it inspires you to do some creative, kind things for someone else. Today I was inspired by the Late Night Stamper 3D Challenge to create this sweet little bird decor item. I have the perfect shelf for him! You can find the steps for  how I made it below, and it's so easy, you can do it too with just a bit of paper, a block, some rosettes, and your own little spring statue. Some other great challenges I would like to enter are:
D. L. Art - Spring Inspiration Challenge
Crafting By Design - Vintage Easter/Spring
Crafting for all Seasons- Anything but a card
Frilly and Funky  Challenge- Easter/Spring gifts not in a basket
Easter Impression - Easter/Spring
Craft Room Challenge - Anything but a card

1. My block is a retired Stampin Up Decor block that is 3x3, but you could use any wooden block. I cut my Tea for Two DSP from the Spring Stampin' Up catalog to fit each side and adhered it.

2. For the base, I used the large scallop square Sizzix die and cut one square from Crumb Cake CS.

3. I applied mono around the bottom of the block and applied the rosette flower trim strand all the way around until I had enough and then I cut the end.

4. To add some interest to the sides, I punched out some pretty images from the same Tea for Two DSP and backed with colored CS like you see with the roses above.

5. I also stamped "My Thoughts are Happiest when you're in them" from the Field Flowers stamp set and backed it with a scalloped piece of green DSP.

6. I had the glass bird already, so I just set him on top. If I find a cute bunny rabbit, I might swap him out, but he looks good there for now!

Thanks for Looking!
