DIY Art Deco Wedding Cake Topper

Add a glamorous Art Deco touch to your wedding cake with today’s simple but stunning cake topper DIY.

Here’s what you’ll need:

  • Styrofoam ball, 3.5″
  • 4″ clear plastic prism picks (we found ours online at a restaurant supply store)
  • Metallic gold craft paint
  • Metallic gold spray paint
  • One wood kabob skewer (cut in half)

Step 1: Cut

Cut a styrofoam ball in half with a sharp knife to make sure you have a smooth, flat half dome.

 Step 2: Paint

Paint the styrofoam ball with gold metallic paint and let it dry for a few hours.

 Step 3: Spraypaint

Lay out about 100 plastic prism picks and spray paint evenly to make sure all edges are covered. Flip them over and spray any unfinished sides.

Step 4: Assemble

Stick the prism picks in the styrofoam in an organized pattern at first, and then fill in any gaps as you see fit.

Step 5: Top it Off

Stick the wooden skewer into the flat side of the dome. Then, place the cake topper on the top of your wedding cake (making sure the styrofoam is very slightly elevated from the top of your cake and not touching). Get ready for a dazzling finish!

Gifts Meant to be Used at the Wedding: Rant or Rave

We recently heard a story of a bride-to-be receiving a personalized wedding cake topper at her shower. It wasn’t on her registry. It wasn’t something she wanted. It wasn’t even something she liked. Yes, it was a sweet gesture (and cost a pretty penny). Should she feel obligated to use it at the wedding? Or should she stand her ground and make sure the wedding day reflects her and her fiancée’s tastes down to every last detail?

What would you do if you received a gift that was expected to be used at the wedding? Rant or rave!
