Easy DIY Wedding Cupcake Topper Idea


Need an easy diy wedding cupcake topper idea? These sweet glitter heart sticks are perfect!

I’ll admit it, I’m a sucker for anything polka dot. Especially black and white polka dots. Don’t ask me how many polka dot sweaters I have…it’s embarrassing really. So how could I resist this black and white polka dot washi tape? I knew I needed to find a way to use it to decorate wedding cupcakes, so I wrapped skewers with it. And like a red lip goes well with a black and white polka dot sweater, so does this topper’s red glitter heart. Gosh I love this look so much!

Supplies needed to recreate this easy diy wedding cake topper:

  • polka dot washi tape
  • small wooden heart shapes (about .5-.75″)
  • fine red glitter
  • craft glue
  • skewers

Instructions for  this easy diy wedding cake topper:

  1. Carefully coat the tiny wooden hearts with glue
  2. Coat the hearts with a good dose of fine glitter
  3. While the hearts dry, wrap your skewers with the washi tape.
  4. Depending on how sticky your washi tape is, you may need to wrap some clear tape around it to keep if from un-peeling. Some washi tape isn’t very sticky for some reason :(
