$39.00 for a cake topper was way out of my price range, so while I strolled Michaels, coupon in hand I thought to myself “I can make that even better!”. So I made my topper to my taste in color and budget.
The kicker…..I paid $6.42 cdn (and we have 15% tax here!!!)
Sticky glitter rhinestones $0.50 a piece!
After my 40% off coupon 6 42. I thought only the Americans got bargains like this! I was on a high!!!!
i painted it all over using acrylic paint already on hand. I did 3 coats of white to cover the black ( yes they did have white lettering, but it cost more and Im desperately frugal)
Then I did red trim after my white coats dried. Two coats of red later and voila!
Finally added rhinestones by cutting them and sticking them with the help of nail scisors and tweezers! This took the longest, but its a rainy afternoon here in Halifax!
I plan to use contact cement to glue my letter to the mirror andit will look fabulous!!
