Pumpkin Cake Topper Supplies

The first thing you will do is grab a little ball of air dry clay. Roll it around in your hands until you make a round ball.  how to make clay pumpkins Stick a toothpick through it letting a little piece stick out of the top. Once you do this get another toothpick and draw your lines in the pumpkin.

Let it dry over night then paint a coat of orange paint all over it. While your orange paint is still wet paint a little brown paint in the cracks. This will add an antique look to it.

VOILA!  How stinking cute are these! You could be a feisty fierce diva and put 10 pumpkins on a piece of cake or you could be simple and put one.

It’s all about DIY today and boy have I got some fun cake toppers for you.

Look, I like balls. I like them so much that I made my own version of “Cake Ball’s.” I know you are probably shaking your head right about now. If you are not I will for you. 

The other night I was sitting in my studio thinking of cute things to add to the top of a cake. The first things that came to my mind was BALLS.

Let’s get started.

YOUWILLNEED Wooden Sticks | Small Christmas Ornaments | Brushes | Paint | Glue Gun | Bakers Twine

The first thing you will do is paint the paint sticks white. I am using a normal crafting brush for this step.

Next you will get this snazzy little Martha Stewart paint brush. It’s like two brushes in one!

I grabbed these “balls” last year at Tar-Jay and they are perfect. P.S. Make sure you take the tip off of the ornament. Paint that sucker all black. I had to put about 3 coats on them before I was happy.

This is how they will turn out. I am actually really shocked at how shiny they became after they were completely dry.

When they are done I put a little dab of hot glue on the tip of wooden stick and stuck it inside the ornament. Just hold it for a second till it’s dry.

Put a little hot glue around the tip of ornament then wrap twine around it.

Another idea is to do different size ornaments.

Quote of the day:

Happy Monday Jaderbugs! I hope y’all had a good weekend. Is it Friday yet, haha?
I am bursting with Christmas spirit these days…{was that believable}? But seriously, today is THE day the spirit is waking up from its nap. Get ready for unique posts every day all based on this magnificent holiday. In today’s post I wanted to give you a little bundle of joy. Yep that’s right today you are getting a whole collection of goodies. I have noticed a lot of pink’s and green’s this year so that is what cha getting today.

These are great for that Holiday party you are having, or for your personal happiness. I printed out one of each to use in my own decor.  Below each picture is a link to download the original PDF. I suggest doing this because the print comes out a little better. However if you don’t want to do that you can just right click and save or drag to your desktop. Then print.

First thing is this whimsical printable. I put this in a huge gold frame in our kitchen, it looks so fannn-cyyy.

You can save it to your desktop or get original PDF below.

Below is a fun printout on note paper so you can write your to-do list, a love letter, a note in your child’s lunch box or a grocery list on. I printed about 5 of these!

Last are some cute cupcake punch outs. I use a 2″ circle punch for these. If you don’t have a hand punch you can just use scissors. Trust me it works just as good. After you cut these you glue a toothpick on the pack and another one on the opposite side. When dry just pop it onto the top of a cupcake or cake.
