DIY Glitter Flower Cupcake Toppers

Happy Friday! 

To celebrate the second day of spring and the beginning of the weekend, we decided to get cupcakes... err I mean we decided to make glitter toppers! ;)  

We're sure you've seen adorable glitter cake and cupcake toppers on Pinterest, like these: 

Found on Pinterest

However, we wanted to add our own Glitties spin on an easy, cheap, and super cute glitter craft! We decided to go with a fresh spring theme and make Spring Flower Glitter Cake Toppers. 

Here are the materials we used: 
  • Extra Heavy Cardstock (Cut-out in desired shape)
  • Extra Fine Glitter Powders (Coral, Sunset, Frostbite
  • Skewers (cut to preferred length) 
  • Glue Dots (Pop Up size) 
  • Mod Podge & Brush
  • Delicious Mini-Cake from The Chocolate

1. Coat the flower shaped cardstock with a thin layer of Mod Podge.
2. Sprinkle glitter over wet Mod Podge, shake off excess. Allow to dry.
3. Add up to three additional coats depending on the size of glitter you are using. If you use extra fine glitter like we used, it will take numerous coats to get the rich color you get in the jar. If you use a thicker glitter, it will take you fewer coats. 
4. Once dry to the touch, shake of any loose glitter and place a glue dot in the center of the flower shape. Place the skewer on the glue dot and add a second glue dot on top of it. 
5. Press the yellow flower center piece on top of the second glue dot, and press together firmly. 
6. Stick your adorable glitter toppers into cupcakes, cakes, flower pots, where you want them! Enjoy!
