Here’s a list of the supplies you’ll need to make your own cake topper:
- Mr. & Mrs. Monogram Cake Topper from Build-A-Cross – Use code RUSTIC30 to save 30% on your entire Build-A-Cross order!!
- Tea Rose Chalk Paint from Dixie Belle
- Mod Podge CS11272 Waterbase Sealer
- Mod Podge 1470 Clear Acrylic Sealer
- Champagne, Extra Fine Poly Glitter (This is the closest I could find to what I used in the video.)
- Acrylic Brush Set
Here’s a quick tutorial:
- You will begin by adding a base coat of the Tea Rose paint from Dixie Belle to your wood cutout. Be sure to choose a color that matches the glitter color you are going to use. This will cover any spots that don’t get completely covered with the glitter. Let that coat of paint dry before moving on to your next steps.
- Next, you will apply a layer of Modge Podge. This will work as an adhesive for the glitter.
- Now it’s time to apply the first coat of glitter. Be sure to pour on a very generous amount of glitter and to pat it into the adhesive. You can always pour the unused glitter back into your jar to use on another project.
- Once that coat was dry, spray the entire thing with a coat of Modge Podge Clear Acrylic Sealer.
- If you are happy with the coverage, you can stop at this step. If not, repeat the glitter application process and add another coat of the acrylic sealer to finish it off.
