Hi there! I am so happy to be guest blogging on one of my favorites sites. I adore all things Cupcakes and Cutlery and I’m excited to be sharing a little DIY today.
I’m a bit of an any reason to celebrate sounds good to me fan. With St Patrick’s Day coming soon I thought it only appropriate to dress up a cake. When I think of St Patrick’s Day I think of food, beer, food, beer, and more food… sweets have to be in the mix somewhere, right? Plus I bought this green cake stand and have been anxious to use it, St Patty’s Day gave the perfect excuse.
I like crafting but I also like to keep things simple, this St. Patrick’s Day topper project was easy and fun. Aside from baking the cake it took only minutes to put this together which is perfect when adding in those last minute touches prior to guest arrivals.
I made a quick stop at the Dollar Store and noticed some glitter table scatter (got excited) and automatically pictured them on a cake. I know this is totally normal. Using skewers I attached the glitter pieces with hot glue. You’ll want to trim the skewers so they “fit” the cake.
Is it odd that I also picture these in bratwurst? I’m game for dressing up all types of food. These accessorized skewers can double as drink stirrers too. A green cocktail with a fancy stirrer, yes please!
Happy celebrating & happy crafting!
Thanks, Melissa!!! I know my kids would love these St. Patrick’s Day toppers! And they are totally my kind of craft, easy and inexpensive. These are the perfect way to make the holiday a little more special. Be sure to check out Melissa’s own blog!!
