Oh man! SO MANY of you have contacted me asking who made the cute little ribbon cake topper from my Alaskan civil ceremony. Guess what? It was ME!
Like, 15 minutes before I walked out the door to the fairgrounds where we got married – I decided I wanted a cute cake topper. So I asked my little brother (the same one who made my tree stump cake stand) to find me two twigs that were the same size as a pencil. Then I grabbed some twine and some ribbon and voila! A sweet and simple cake topper for under $2.00 and DIYed in under 5 minutes.
And here’s how I made it:
Step One: Trim your twine to 1/2 yard and tie each end to the tops of the chopsticks.
Step Two: Use the scissors to trim the ribbon into 2"-3" lengths. Tie each length around the twine using a square knot to secure.
Step Three: Repeat until all ribbon is used or it looks awesome to you.
Step Four: Stick in cake. Done!
Tulle Nation, not bad for 5 minutes of work, right? Are any of you planning on using a cake topper for your wedding? What's it going to look like? Will you be making it? Share away!
