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, after a long three months of nothingness the shop has been re-stocked! I have some new collections that I think are super cute. To make it even better, I now have a very handsome little model to show off the new looks! Click here to head over and check them out!
I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving weekend with your loved ones. I can honestly say, best Thanksgiving ever!
In honor of Cyber Monday I have a new product up in my shop!I am extra excited about this one because it was a collaboration with my very talented brother. We love being creative together and have always wanted to do something like this. This is only the beginning of the prints that we plan to have up and this particular one is pretty special. He and my sister-in-law printed this design on a few onesies for Everly right before they left for Panama (those are their hands). While they were away it was such a sweet reminder of how much they love and missed her. And now we have chosen to share it with you!This would make a great shower or Christmas gift for the little ones in your life. In light of Cyber Monday I am offering my readers 10% off this and all of the products in my shop for the rest of the day. Just use discount code CYBERMONDAY10 at check out. Happy Monday!
