Something For Saturday {Or Mother’s Day Sunday}: Floral Mom Cake Topper

A little something for Saturday.

While I was browsing the web a couple of weeks ago, I scanned over an image of a floral cake topper that was very pretty and seemed fairly easy to make, so I bookmarked the page and vowed to visit it again come Mother’s Day.  Turns out, it was as simple as it looked to recreate and I was really pleased with the result.  Now, it just means I need to whip up a cake.

The floral wire that I came across in the shade of green I wanted only came packaged individually, standing at one and a half feet long each.  I was nervous that it would interfere with the flow of the project, but I found that these separate strands worked well and might have helped to write out the cursive letters since they were broken up a bit.  I started by bending the floral wire to spell out ‘Mom’ creating each letter separately and combining the letters by twisting them together in a few places, keeping the wire close.  (The first ‘M’ measured about 4 inches tall).

Then, I cut out a bunch of tiny leaves in several shades of green and glued them in clusters at various points.  I glued the miniature flowers directly on top of the leaves wherever I wanted to see a pop of color.  Next, I colored the top 2 inches of each skewer with a dark green Sharpie, so that they would blend smoothly into the rest of the topper.

The author used decorative flowers with wire already attached from Paper Mart, but since I was more pressed for time and didn’t think they would ship quick enough, I went to my local craft store and searched the scrapbook section for similar ones.  Although I didn’t come across any with wire, they were still able to adhere to the letters easily with some Krazy glue.
