DIY Bunting Cake Topper

The more creative the wedding, the more unique the details. So, why not add a whimsical touch to your wedding cake  you can customize however you’d like!

I, Ashley, have a cake topper DIY for you that will make for pretty pictures for years to come, and all you have to use is a little tape and string …


  • Assorted colors of washi tape
  • Baker’s twine
  • Scissors
  • Two wooden skewers


DIY Bunting

1 | Cut one long piece of twine and double knot one it to the top of a skewer. 

2 | Lay the second skewer the distance away you’ll need it for the size of your cake, and make another double knot.

3 | Continue knotting the twine around the skewers to make a zig-zag pattern, and then tape the skewers down.

4 | Lift the twine and wrap a piece of washi tape around it.

5 | Continue to add tape, alternating the colors if you wish. The lengths don’t have to match to perfectly.

6 | Using scissors, cut the tips of the tape into V shapes.
