Add a festive touch to your autumn celebrations with this brilliant fall cake topper! It’s very easy to make and you can customize the colors!
Happy fall friends! It’s still soooo hot here, but surprisingly the leaves are changing, and it’s really starting to feel like fall at my house! We have our fall school break coming up, and I have decided to throw a little dinner party to celebrate my favorite season.
I made this adorable fall leaf inspired cake topper, and just had to share! It looks so cozy, doesn’t it?? It so easy to make, and only takes a few supplies.
To get started you need:
- Skewer sticks
- Felt balls
- Colored cardstock in orange, green, and yellow
- Hot glue gun and glue sticks
- Quilting needle and twine
First, use scissors to cut leaf shapes out of your paper. They don’t need to look perfectly dimensional, just try to keep them about 2″ tall. You can also use an electronic die-cut machine like I did, but I promise hand cut feathers are easy to make!
After threading your felt balls, use your hot glue gun to attach the feathers to your banner, staggering the colors as you go. Feel free to mix your patterns and colors however you like!
Just attach the banner to two wooden skewers with hot glue, and insert it in your cake. That’s it, so easy! I just love how it turned out. I think I will make some matching napkin rings to go with it! I have plenty of leftover paper to make a party banner with feathers too.
