This easy DIY cake topper with paper flowers is one of the best easy cake decorating ideas out there! You don't have to spend a lot of time or money to make your cake fun and festive!
I'm kind of in love with paper flowers lately. I made some a few weeks ago to decorate this gift card wreath I made, and then I wanted to find more ways to use them, so this cake topper was born. Conveniently, it was my birthday that week, so I had an excuse to have cake! Maybe that's why I had cake toppers on my mind. Either way, it was really fun and easy to make, and I think it would be great for a birthday, a wedding, Mother's Day or a baby shower... basically whenever you want!
Making paper flowers is really easy, but it can be time consuming, depending on how intricate you want them to be. I used my Cricut to make these, and mostly it just took a long time to cut all of the petal and pistil pieces out. Here is an in-depth tutorial for how to make them.
Once you have paper flowers to work with, here is the tutorial:
