Weekend DIY: Floral Cake Topper

I was looking to brighten up the sweet-themed Hummingbird Cake I made for Mother’s Day/Birthday. I searched for supplies on hand and came up with bright hued scrapbooking flowers and always festive striped straws. A day-brightening daisy-themed cake topper was the perfect puzzle piece, complete in under 15 minutes.

Using a hot glue gun, dab the glue in the middle of the back of the first flower and place the baker’s twine directly through it.

Continue to do the same for the remaining flowers.
