My Fi really wanted a camo guy to sit on top of his grooms cake but looking around the web, they can cost anywhere from 80-100 dollars! So, I took matters into my own hands. Basically, he was looking for a bride, dragging a groom in camo, away from his tree stand and a deer. Well, I went to wal mart and purchased one of these beauts for I think $10?
then whipped out my paints and went to work. I still need to add a bit of brown but you get the idea! It was super easy. I put several coats of dark green for the base. It took a couple tries to cover the black of the suit, but we got it done! Then I dotted on light green and black. 🙂

@sheeoni — I haven’t done the shoes yet, I was hoping noone would notice… I don’t have any dark brown paint!!
The cake will be rolling hills and the bride is basically draggin him away from the deer, turkey and his gun will be laying on the ground next to him. I thought it was a cute idea. 😉

That is just great, very creative. I wish I could do something like that, but me and paint really dont mix. This reminds me of my dad’s wedding. It was camo and outdoorsy to the max.
My dad is a big outdoorsman. For his wedding he had a white camo vest and groomsmen had brown camo. We wore forest green dresses. I dont know how well you can see it in the picture.
A great idea they came up with was their card box. They saw a display in a Wal-Mart for a camo pop up deerstand. and somehow convinced the store to give it to them so they had a mini camo ground blind for their card box. It was awesome.(i wish i had a picture but cant seem to find one)
Here is a pic of their cake topper. Topper bought from wal-mart, but the bow is from a g.i. joe..
