Sam and I had a blast today, prepping things for a fabulous photo-shoot alongside our new intern, Brittany. We have been sourcing and crafting and painting….a true Zest day! It was so much fun creating and designing, literally my favorite type of day. The shoot has several elements of inspiration, but one cool piece that had us excited was a crown my sister had coveted way back before she was engaged:
Super cute, right? Well, we decided “Why not as a cake topper?” One of the model’s dresses was completely in the princess vibe, so why not adorn the wedding cake with a crown?! One trip to restore for a $3 screen and a couple bucks worth of baubles from the GoodWill, and we were set!!
First step was to turn a metal headband into a crown shape using some wire.
Next, it was time to hack away at the screen.
Using the wire, I simply whip-stitched my crenellations onto my metal base.
Now to add some bling-bling!
And as a last step, I used a curling iron to make my crenellations a little whimsical.
I am super excited to see this on top of our three tiered cake tomorrow. I will totally add pix to this post once they come in…it will be gorgeous.
So, if you have a little princess of your own, maybe this thrifty but artistic crown would be the perfect DIY for you! Just imagine the perfect halloween costume or even a topper to her pretty little birthday cake. Absolutely divine!
