Remember one post back, when I mentioned topping this cake with a fun cake topper?
Did you really think I’d leave you guys hanging without a cake topper project…? Absolutely not. Duh.
I’m sure most of you happen to have a polaroid camera hanging around. They were all the rage a few years back and they’re not going anywhere anytime soon! (Have you seen the new wide camera?! Love!)
I’ve seen SO many awesome ways to incorporate polaroid pictures into everyday life and I’ve been kind of obsessed with celebrating the infamous polaroid in my own way…which would have to tie into a party, of course.
So I combined one of my favorite things (dessert) with polaroids…and this baby was born…a DIY polaroid cake topper!
They are beyond easy to make and take no time at all. (I’m all about an easy project).
Plus, you can still keep your polaroid pictures to use for something else after the topper. These are double duty polaroids, people!
The other great thing about these toppers…? You can use them for ANY type of event. Just change out the pictures to suit the theme and you’re all set!
Ready to make em’?
- 16 Gauge Wire (mine was in a roll)
- Needle-nose Pliers
- Wire Clippers
- Polaroid Pictures
Using your wire clippers, cut a piece of wire a little longer than needed to stick into your cake.
(If you find that the holder is still too long for your cake, just clip the ends with your wire clippers).
This DIY polaroid cake topper is so easy to do and gives a cake such a fun vibe! (Is that possible with a cake…? I think so).
