wedding cake toppers

I was recently asked if I made wedding cake toppers out of my peg people. I haven't yet, so I wanted to test out painting a bridal party - just to make sure I've got the Right Stuff. What do you think? Be honest!

I used my sister's recent wedding as the jumping-off point for the attire. Her dress had tone-on-tone embroidery that had small crystal beads stitched into the design, which I replicated by doing a tone-on-tone painted detail and then touched up with irridescent glitter paint for sparkle. Her veil was shoulder-length and was dotted with rhinestone jewels, which I have also included on my tiny bride's veil.

The bridesmaids wore pink sashes that also had an embroidery and crystal detail on them, along with rhinestone barrettes -- I used the same glitter paint on the barrette.

Bride and Groom Wedding Cake Toppers said...

Your bride and groom wedding cake toppers look excellent! I find them very cute. The only suggestion I would make is to possible put more rhinestone jewels on the bride, or maybe the bride carrying a little flower bouquet. Maybe instead of painting the veil you could use some white mesh material. Anyways I like them a lot and think you've found a neat niche.
