I love the darling clothes pin cake toppers that I came across some a few months ago on Etsy & decided to make the one pictured above for Abby's 6th birthday (back in December, still need to get the pics up, our camera was on a weird setting so I don't have many great pics-bummer!). Granted I decided to make hers the day before & had to improvise as I couldn't find the proper "head", but I think it all worked out, yes her dress is a bit wrinkled but hey we all have a wrinkled day every now & then!
I scrounged up things around my house. I used a thread spool for the cupcake base and wrapped it with a ribbon scrap. I topped the cupcake with pink painted fiberfil (no we didn't light the candle, realized it was a complete fire hazard!). I also used the fiber fill for the snow & sprinkled on my favorite Martha Stewart glitter. I wrapped foil balls with small pieces of fabric to create the candies & used an old rubber stamp base for the gift. It was a really fun project to do with Abby & looked darling as the centerpiece of her sweet shoppe. Wouldn't this be a fun project for older girls at a doll themed party.
Want to make your own? Here is a great tutorial (could've used this when trying to figure out what to use for her head, I used a wooden bead, but she has a hole in her head!)
Lots of other cute ones out there!
