DIY: Kissing clothespin cake topper

I've been thinking of fun, alternative caketoppers and when I saw this, I thought it'd be the perfect thing to turn bridal. They're so quick and easy to make that you could even make a bunch of them and clip them to brown paper bags as favors for your guests. I found an oversized clothespin at the dollar store, which adds a little more drama to the cake than everyday laundry clothespins.

You will need clothespins, acrylic paints, paintbrushes, pencil, (optional lace/tulle for veil)

Step 1: Pencil in your tuxedo with bow tie and wedding dress. Keep it simple. I added a pearl necklace and rosy cheeks.

Step 2: Paint in your lines.

Step 3: (optional) Glue gun pieces of lace or tulle to make veil.

Voilà! — Brittany

I adore this cake photographed by John Cullen and thought it'd be the perfect thing to show off our kissing duo.

    So cute! Great job! Do you use a varnish on top? Could this be done with any other medium? Paint is messy. Could paint markers work?

    Thank you,

  32. @crista, I didn’t use a varnish for it, but it couldn’t hurt! And yes, it could be done with any medium including paint markers. Go to town!

    Where do you get your clothespins? I keep finding them with grip ridges and I want them straight down like yours.

  41. Not only would it remain one manifestation on that you as a couple, the ONE should and make a good statement. One create abundantly illustrates which – both the “Expecting” that describes a expecting bride. What one method to create an announcement do not you consider? Such say this were going to be something that you would care to think about. So that once you think your pad, you will remember your own marriage ceremony day and also how you really fell at that time. Anyway, which one would like is that which will be departed, once the wedding party and also the fun, are but not only the wedding cake toppers,…however more really, both the love when well.
