Hello, crafty friends! I have a super simple and trendy project for you! Remember crafting with pipe cleaners as kids? It was the best! Well, adults can create with pipe cleaners too! In just a few minutes you can totally craft a personalized DIY cake topper with just a few pieces of pipe cleaners (also known as chenille stems). It’s a super inexpensive way to decorate for your party.
You can use regular colored chenille stems for this DIY cake topper, but these neon ones are especially fun!
To get started, first adhere two stems together with your hot glue gun. Glue it carefully at the ends, doubling the length of your chenille stem.
Next, start shaping the letter or design you want. I would suggest keeping it simple. Create short single words or basic shapes. If it helps, draw the word first on a piece of paper, then trace it with the pipe cleaner.
Handmade cake toppers really add a personal touch to party and special occasion cakes. This DIY paper flower cake topper and these wood script DIY cake toppers are also awesome options for your next party!
