DIY Cake Toppers

Recommended Posts

I love E6000!!! that stuff will work on anything. case in point: my side mirror on my car broke off the housing. I used E6000 to glue that sucker back in there, vs. a $500 replacement. Ok, so it isn't an "automatic" or adjustable mirror anymore, but it still works! lol

So I don't think there is a big difference but the flat backs seem to be less expensive. Once I receive my order I will examine them to see which looks best and try to take pictures for you. :o)   As far as the cake topper, I plan to paint it with silver acrylic paint I got from Hobbly Lobby and then attach the rhinestones with E6000 glue. :o)

 

YES. We would have some fun DIY parties. With wine.

I started yesterday morning on my cake topper, and finished the front before I had to leave for a 5k. :o)

I'm thinking about blinging the back side just in case the cake is not backed to a wall.

 

Before....

After...

 I can't wait to see your letters.. :o) Have you gotten them yet? Mine came in on Saturday.

Nope not yet, but I did get the shipment confirmation on Friday morning and I had them paint it silver (once less step for me). I know you listed all of your crystal sizes but, what size did you end up using for this? It turned out great! how long did it take you to complete the front?

 Ahh. I didn't know they did that!.. But it only took me maybe 15 mins at most to paint my whole letter. :o) I think I went with the 5" I'll look when I get home. I bought the thinest and the next size up, but went with the thinest one as I didn't want it to get too bulky or heavy. The next size up was almost 3x's as thick.

 

Thanks! :o) Hmm... maybe 2-3 hours. I totally lost track of time.. you can't tell in this picture, but I think I used the most tiny rhinestoned made in some spots. I highly recommend tweezers :o) It made the just sooo much easier.

 Okay, here is the one I used.

Font: Monterey BT Height: 5" Width: 5.8" Thickness: 1/8inch 

 

My rhinestones that I purchased from ebay still has not come in.. So the stone I used were some that I bought... idk when or why.. lol

I looked this morning and the large ones that I used were a 12mm per the package and the other were super duper tiny. I'm gonna guess and say they were between a 1-2mm. I'm sure yours will be tidious but very blingy!! :o) I was just too impatient to wait for the new stones to come in. :o(

    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
