Free-Printable-Cake-Topper--My-Crafty-Spot-1

It was my good friend’s birthday yesterday and I wanted to do something special for her so I decided to have a girls night at my house and bake her a cake! Anyone that reads my blog knows I am not a good cook and I am certainly not a good cake decorator. Check out my halloween cake below….. yes… that is the extent of my cake decorating skills. So for this cake I decided to make a free printable cake topper that hangs from dowels. It turned out so good that I wanted to share it with you!!

But to be fair…. my friends were on their way over, my daughter was screaming because I had crushed her last graham cracker for the cake and Β my scissors were covered in sticky residue from my last duck tape project. Soooo… Im hoping if you use this printable your circles come out better then mine πŸ™‚

My best friend and I recently threw a baby shower for one of our besties. Our girlfriend is having a boy so my best friend made these adorable hanging pom poms in blue and white over the table where we served the food. They are so cute and would be perfect for any type party you might throw. Here is step by step instructions for the Queen herself, Martha Stewart. They are so easy and really help bring the festive look for your room decorations. It also doesn’t take too much time and they really look great!
