Have a large square to support the four risers, and a slightly smaller
square to provide a stacking rest. The view from underneath would be:

|\    /|
| +--+ |
| |  | |
| +--+ |
|/    \|

You'd need a seam up one of the risers and along all the base-legs, but
it ought to be possible to do this with flat cloth otherwise. On the
bottom, the fabric runs to the edge of the inner square, so that the
pyramids still look good when tipped over.
