DIY Gem Cake Toppers


Parties, cake, diamonds, color!  I pretty much love everything here!  One of my first ideas for Colette's first birthday party was a "You're A Gem" theme.  However, I went with a different theme (under wraps for now ;) but this idea was one of my first in the party planning stage.  I still may keep them for her cake and definitely keeping them as cocktail stirrers (for other parties not my one year old's...) 


Materials:
Diamond table scatterers (clear plastic, the ones in material list are already painted :)
Drill with 1/16th bit
Paint
Paint Brushes
Superglue or another fast acting glue, hot glue
Bamboo Skewers or Thin Wooden Dowels

* I scored mine at the thrift store for $2, but most any party site has them!





How to Make Gem Cake Toppers!

Drill a hole through the bottom of the diamond.
My box had 3 different sizes of diamonds, the small ones were nearly impossible to drill, but the bigger ones are much easier!

Put glue in hole, insert skewer!

Paint!


Also, makes a great drink stirrer- perfect for any You're a Gem Party, engagement, wedding shower party!


I love them and the colors!
