Another addition to my sister’s 30th Birthday Blowout were these crafty cake toppers. They actually turned out to be a little heavier than I intended, so I didn’t end up sticking them in the cake. Instead, I bought two little candle vases from the dollar store, filled them with M&Ms and stuck the “3” and the “0” in there.
-parchment paper (or possibly wax paper-I haven’t tested it with wax paper.)
-hot glue gun
-print-out number (or print-out of whatever you want to write)
Heat up hot glue gun. Lay parchment paper over printed number. (You can try to tap print-out to parchment paper to keep it in place, but tape doesn’t stick well to parchment.)Start to trace number with glue gun.
Sprinkle sparkles over heated glue.
Place kebab stick on the bottom of the number. (As you can see from the pictures I went back and did this step after I started making the foundation of the glue-sparkle layer.)
Continue tracing number with hot glue and pouring sparkles on until number is sturdy. I found it necessary to add some wire to the number to make it stronger.
Once the number is finished I recommend mod-podging it to make sure glitter doesn’t fall onto the food.
It’s a pretty simple project. My roommate did begin to complain that she was find sparkles everywhere in our apartment, but I don’t think a little extra glitter here and there is such a bad thing!
