One hot August day, I undertook a project that I could complete in our only air conditioned room; our bedroom.
I am planning on using a lot of pine cones in our fall wedding decor, so when I saw this on Pinterest, I knew I wanted to try it out!
Seriously?! How cute is this?!
I bought a garbage bag full of pine cones from someone off of Kijiji a while back who had been collecting them for some art project but then didn’t need them. After scouring through the bag, I settled on two that looked fairly similar.
I used some extra tulle samples that I had ordered from fabric.com when I was thinking I’d get my veil tulle from them instead of Fabricland. Everything ended up looking so similar though that it wasn’t worth it for the veil but I have lots of samples for crafts now!
Next I set out to find something to make a top hat out of and ended up going with two tea lights taped together. I then wrapped them and a cardboard disk in black ribbon before attaching those two together to make a top hat. I’m still considering adding some glitter to help have the seems blend in a little better.
I then took to my cute hot glue gun and attached the veil and top hat to my pine cones.
The final version of Mr. G.
Well here you have it! Our cute cake toppers. I will likely still attach a crystal for a ring as well as attach them to a flat disk of some sort after consulting with our bakers regarding stability — but for now, they are done!
Hope you like them!
