Here's a step by step process of making the base:
Materials needed: 6 inch styrofoam circle, white fabric, hot glue gun, lace, spanish moss, and lots of patience
First, I cut two 6 inch circles out of the white fabric.
Then I cut a strip of white fabric to run along the side/edge of the circle.
I hot glued them in place.
Hot glued the spanish moss on to the top of the base (small sections at a time).
Then I started hot gluing the lace around the edge.
I used 3 layers of lace to get the look that I wanted.
I spray painted the birds, dusted them with blush, and clear coated them with a flat spray paint. You can refer to my previous post for more details on making the birds.
