One of my closest friends just had her first baby and a few weeks ago I had the privilege of helping with her shower. I wanted something very boy but also creative and cute for mama. These gold animal cake toppers were a hit and I had so much fun making them for Linds.
They ended up coming together pretty quickly and they had a huge impact on the table scape. The best part is, you can make them too! Here’s how:*You’ll want a drill bit that is the same diameter as your skewers1. Take each plastic animal and drill a small hole on the bottom. Drilling the holes works best if you start slowly. I would also strongly recommend you use a vice rather than your hands to hold the animals.2. Place the skewers in each hole. If you chose the correct size drill bit you won’t need glue. If your holes ended up slightly larger than the skewers, you can add a dab before you set the skewer.
3. Start spraying.
Make sure you get every angle including the skewer. If spray paint in your cake concerns you, leave about two inches of unpainted skewer at the bottom.4. Let them dry and have a party!
I love how these turned out. They are great for a birthday party or shower it doesn’t even need to be a party for kids, adults will love them too.I think they are a fabulous mix of fun, whimsy and sophistication. The perfect special touch for your next party.
Love these little guys but don’t want to make them yourself? I’ll make them for you! Head over to my Etsy shop and order up!
That’s right. Teething all around. I stuck my finger in this guys mouth the other day only to find a razor sharp tooth. He’s three months old! Yeesh! Apparently I got my first tooth at three and a half so paybacks? It’s almost like the littles decided to gang up on me because I took a peek in Evie’s mouth last night and found three more molars making their way through her gums. So happy teething week to us!
