Pom Cake Toppers

Happy Thursday Everyone! Today I am sharing with you the long-promised pom cake toppers. I made big poms for my friend's wedding, and she also wanted mini ones to put on her cakes. Thanks to my 9th grade Spanish class where I learned how to make piƱata, I figured out how to make the perfect mini poms for her cakes! This is my last wedding project to share...for now.

Here's what you'll need:


1. Tissue Paper
2. Scalloped Circle Punch (I used a 1-1/2 inch)
3. Scissors
4. Wooden Kabob Sticks
5. Hot Glue Gun & Glue
6. Pencil


First punch out a bunch of circles (you can also cut out 1x1 inch square and use those if you don't have a circle punch).


Then cut out about a one inch strip of tissue paper and ball it up. Glue the ball together and then glue it on the top of the wooden stick.


Next comes the fun part. Take the scalloped circles one by one, place the eraser end in the middle of the circle, fold the edges up around the pencil and then twist the edges around so they wrap around the pencil. Put glue on eraser end of the tissue paper and glue it to the tissue paper ball. Keep doing this and glue the circles close together starting near the stick.


I'm not going to lie, this takes quite a while (especially when you make 33 of them), but they look so cute when they are done!


See?!


And here we are together at the wedding - my little pom friends and me. My friend had cakes at each table for the centerpiece and the pom toppers were on half of the cakes. Very cute!

Thanks for stopping by! Have a great week!

  4. Those are so cute! While I am so not crafty, I love the look of these! Simply adorable. I enjoy looking at other people's stuff more than I enjoy crafting, unfortunately. Every now and then I manage to do something that I really, really like! :)
