Dress Form Stand

I found this dress form stands at a local craft store; Wooten's Scrapbook Co.  I kept coming back to them and visioning what/how I would decorate them.  One of the sales girls made a few suggestions and I'm out the door with two of them!  :)  Overall, I'm proud of my finished project; since this was my first try at decorating one of these. 

This is what I started with.
And... this is what I finished with.  :)
My plan of attack when I started, was to start with the skirt and work down the base/stand.
I found wonderful stack of paper by DCWV "The Lace and Linen Collection."
The flower on the base were from Prima and I used pink and silver Stickles in the center of flowers.
Now, I will ask for opinions on this: what are your thoughts of covering the base/stand with flower like I did?

I said it above and have to say it again; check out DCWV "The Lace and Linen Collection."  Beautiful papers!!  :)
I cut strips of paper for skirt by 8.5 X 1.5
Then I would tear the excess off.  I used modge podge gloss.  This was my first time using modge podge and after seeing the finished skirt now realized what gloss glue does.  ;)

Unfortunately, I forgot what cartridge I used to cut the hearts; however the size of hearts are 3/4".
I used chantilly lace and threaded pink grosgrain ribbon to make the scarf.

The large flower came from Prima Flowers.

Well...hope you enjoyed my first decorated dress form stand.  I have one more to do; but mulling around with a theme and to what theme.  Suggestions?  :)
