Planning a little girl’s birthday party? This ballerina cake topper will have your guests pirouetting around – and I know I say this all the time, but it really is easy to make! It’s on point!
Materials needed: pink, cream and white streamers, tutu template, pink cardstock, scissors, 6 mini clothespins, twine, bamboo skewers, scissors, craft glue, 2 medium-sized pink pom poms.
Step 1: Print out the tutu template, and cut out the leotards.
Step 2: Cut a 12” piece of pink streamer.
Step 3: Fold in half lengthwise, and fold in half again.
Step 4: Cut fringe into the folded streamer.
Step 5: Unfold and place a line of glue along the top edge of the streamer.
Step 6: Wrap the glued side to the waist of the leotard. Repeat for each color.
Step 7: Cut a 10” length of twine, and tie each end to the tops of two bamboo skewers.
Step 8: Pin the tutus to the twine using mini clothespins.
Step 9: Using craft glue, affix two pom poms to the top of each of the bamboo skewers.
