15 Fantastic DIY Wedding Cake Toppers

There is one little wedding detail, that can sometimes get overlooked.  It can add a lot of impact to one of the star attractions at the wedding reception.  The attraction I am talking about, besides the bride and groom, is the wedding cake.  And, the item that can give it some impact or wow factor is, of course, the wedding cake topper.

There are several different options that you can buy but if you want something truly unique, you might want to make something yourself.  Unlike party favors, escort cards or invitations, this is an item that you only have to make one of so even if you don’t consider yourself a do it yourself bride, you may find that you can tackle just one project.

I have found not just a few but fifteen fantastic diy wedding cake toppers for you to look at.  Just click on the links or photos to go straight to the step by step tutorials to try one of these for yourself.
