DIY Teacup Cake Topper
Another project sent by Julia, who also made this adorable DIY Travel Paper Plane Mobile. This time she made a teacup cake topper, that can be found either at thrift stores or in your grandma’s cupboard. It’s a great alternative if you would like to honor your grandparents if the traditional figurine cake topper is not your thing.
What you’ll need:
-vintage teacup and saucer
-paper embellishments (I used pearl stickers)
-bowl of water
Step 1: Trim floral foam to a size that will fit snugly into your teacup. Poke holes in the top to allow water to soak through better.
Step 2: Place floral foam in a bowl of water and tape down so it doesn’t float up. Make sure water gets into the holes you poked. Allow foam to soak at least ten minutes, but ideally over an hour (the more water it has, the longer the flowers will last).
Step 3: Arrange trimmed flowers in teacup, poking stems into the foam. If stems are soft or really thick, make a hole in the foam before inserting flower so you don’t break the stem.
Step 4: Cut paper into a flag shape and write names of the bride and groom on it. Embellish with whatever you choose (I used pearl stickers).
Step 5: Fold paper over end of twig and secure with glue dots. Insert twig into the foam of your flower arrangement.
Step 6: Place teacup and saucer on cake and take lots of pictures!
