DIY custom cupcake toppers

I love creating DIY party decor. If you have an event coming up, perhaps a game day gathering or a child’s birthday, these DIY cupcake toppers are super simple decorations that add a fun punch of color. I love red and turquoise together. And I heart whales, so I made mine with my favorite whale stamp.

The best part? You can customize these toppers to match any theme or color scheme. And you don’t have to spend a lot of money. All you need is a few sheets of white card stock to layer on a colored or patterned card stock, a few punches, some popsicle sticks and glue.

Stamp your selected image on the white card stock. Punch out the image with a scalloped circle or whatever shape suites your theme. Use a strong adhesive to stick the scalloped circle on a larger punched circle. Put some glue around the back of two of the large circles, add some extra glue in the center for the popsicle stick, and sandwich the stick between the circles. This way you have a whale (or whatever image you selected, on both sides of the stick. I used mini clothespins to hold everything together while the glue set for a couple minutes.

Happy crafting!

  1. Fun! I love to help people make custom cards and decor for special times, too. Those whale cupcake picks are very cute. Turquoise is one of my favorite colors and it is really bright when paired with red. Cute!
