Cake toppers are one of the most underrated aspects of a wedding! We spend so much time thinking about the cake flavor (or cupcake flavor or pie flavor) that the cake topper, for most brides, can fall to the wayside. Here is a great DIY project that adds a personal touch to your cake (and is VERY inexpenvie and easy!)

This is also a great way to incorporate family that maybe could not make it or is sadly no longer with us. All you need is a shot from their wedding and you have a  wonderful tribute to their love on your special day. Or you can just use a very cool historic picture from the archives or a classic picture of famous couples of past.

Supplies Needed:
vintage wedding photo
red tape
vintage music sheet paper
patterned stock for back of photo

1. cut out wedding photo, creating a silhouette
2. adhere photo to patterned paper so that the pattern is facing out (showing on the back of photo) and cut out in the same silhouette
3. cut music sheets into two separate 2 1/2″ strips
4. fold accordion style to make a half circle
5. adhere the half circle to the bottom of the photograph
6. repeat on the back side (1/2 side of pinwheel)
