Continuing with our DIY Contest entires, next project up is a DIY lovebird cake topper made by Mel Hince. This is such an easy and quick project, and we can’t stand the cuteness.

Instructions:
Step 1: Start by shaping the nest so that it is the right size for your cake and has enough space for your birdies to sit comfortably.

Step 2: Start filling the nest with some dried moss and secure using PVA glue. Note: You can use a glue gun here, but I find the “glue strings” hard to avoid.

Step 3: Once dried, sit your birdies in the nest. It’s up to you whether you glue them in or not.

Step 4: Pretty the nest up with some tiny paper flowers and finish by gluing a piece of felt on the bottom of the nest to avoid sneaky bits of nest ending up on mum and dad’s piece of cake!
