My DIY Bling Cake Topper

>> Monday, August 24, 2009

The bling or glitzy cake toppers have always been my favorite, because I just think it adds such an elegance to the cake. It was NOT in my budget to purchase a finished letter. I started to do some research and figure out a way to make my own without breaking the bank. That's when I came across a bride on The Knot raving about "Craft Eddy". He makes custom wooden cake toppers that are unfinished and ready to be decorated however you choose. I contacted Eddie in the morning and had my letter in the mail by 5pm, the turnaround was tremendous!
After my letter arrived I painted it a champagne color and then used my hotfix tool to adhere the 250 Swarovski crystals I ordered from Artbeads.com. The entire process took about 4 hours.

Total Cost:
Custom 6" Letter~$14 (shipping included)
Folk Art Champagne Paint~$1.89
300 Hotfix Swarovski Crystals~ $30.00

TOTAL::$45.89 (saved about $133.11)
