Thrifty Thursday: Topping the Cake.

I spotted these figurines at Goodwill many moons ago, the night that Goodwill gave me 50% off everything I bought.


These puppies ended up being $1.63 for the set! Can you believe that? They even had attire similar to ours.

I just knew these had to be our one year anniversary cake toppers… since ours were thrown out, being fresh apples and all ;) But the hair and eye colors were wrong. His was blonde/blue (like me!) and mine was black/brown (like neither of us). So with a little acrylic paint from my stash, I slowly made them over to look like us.

Then added a little sparkle to her dress to make all the bling in my dress:

The hard part was keeping them a secret from Hussy. I succeeded for WEEKS, until he looked at the pictures I took of them on my camera our anniversary morning. So he got to see them before I got to put them on the cake. Oh well, we don’t do presents/surprises well here anyhow :)
