If any of you are as much a fan of Etsy as I am, you would probably have seen photos of these adorable wooden doll cake toppers.
They are short little stubby people that are hand painted by the sellers to resemble the couple. First time I laid eyes on this idea I knew there was no other cake topper out there for me.
But there’s a catch.
Problem is most of them cost a bomb. Depending on the complexity / customisation of the doll, it could cost from $50 to $88 US Dollars! That’s $110 Singapore Dollars EXCLUDING SHIPPING!! I have a budget to keep to man. So I decided to trust my hands and amateur painting skills, get the naked dolls and paint my own cake topper!
I first sketched out the faces by referencing the ones on Etsy (kudos to them!) and the outfits. ! cut out a patterned dress from my huge collection of doillies and shaped sweet heart neckline. I think it’s pretty cute.
