- Wedding: September 2017
Hi everyone! This is my first DIY post 🙂 my bf of 2 years and i are planning to move out next year when i graduate from university and get married a year after setting in 🙂 I figured since i have a lot of time i could do a bunch of DIY stuff to save on costs. I’ve tried out the wire hangers and only have done my name since i’m set on who my bridesmaids will be (aside from my sister and his) so, i decided to tacke a custom cake topper.
I thought it was ridiculous that people were charging from $100 up to $300 on some toppers until i tackled it myself. OH MY ITS TIME CONSUMING!!! i’m sure altogether i spend about 4hours sculpting then maybe another 4 on painting (i’m not as artsy as some bees so i take waay more time). In the end i think it’s worth it considering i only spent under $10 🙂
I can’t decide what color i should paint his tie, should i paint it blue? or leave it as pearl white?it’s too early to decide theme colours (Although i’m set on either blue or red 🙂 ) I think i’ll add some stripes on the white part of the stick for tape too.
Anyhoo, how’d i do? 🙂
