So easy peesy in fact, you’ll wonder why you didn’t make these adorable mini flags sooner!

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

DIY cake topper bunting with washi tape

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.

DIY Vintage Button Boutonniere

Today, I’m excited to introduce our new Guest Blogger – Ashley Rose from Sugar and Cloth {which I recommend you pop on over to later for a gorgeous dose of yummy treats & pretty ideas}. Ashley, is what we at LWB classify as a bona fide “DIY Diva” – wonderfully creative, super crafty, and a gorgeous girl to go with it! Which is why we’re thrilled she will be dropping in to Love Wed Bliss regularly with fantastic DIY projects for all our readers! So without further adieu, I’ll hand you over to the lovely Ash for her first LWB project (which I know all you DIY brides are gonna love!).

DIY Button Boutonniere Wedding

Hello, Love Wed Bliss readers! I, Ashley, am so excited to be collaborating with LWB to inspire you to add a few DIY touches to your special day. I have lots of neat projects in store for you, but first up are these sweet little vintage button boutonnieres. Maybe I’m bias because of my small(ish) obsession with all things buttons and polka dots, but these boutonnieres are sure to get a thumbs up as modern alternatives to flowers.

Pro’s: Budget friendly, keepsakes, modern, customizable . . . AND you can make them in advance.

Con’s: Not exactly a good choice for button haters.

1 | Buttons in various sizes and styles

2 | Floral wire

3 | Wire cutters / Scissors

4 | Twine / Ribbon

5 | Safety pin

How To Make A Button Boutonniere

1 | Stack buttons on a flat surface to get a general idea of the layout you like.

2 + 3 | String floral wire through one button hole, and back down through the opposite hole.

4 | Twist the wire tightly to the back of the buttons to secure the hold.

5 | Cut the wires leaving excess wire. The excess is how you will attach each “stem” to the safety pin.

6 + 7 | Repeat stringing wire through the remaining button stems.

8 | Next, you’ll wrap the excess wires from each of your stems around the safety pin, using one hand to maintain the desired placement and height of the buttons. Make sure the safety pin enclosure is facing the top (as shown) when you begin wrapping so that when you’re finished the enclosure will be hidden behind the buttons.

9 + 10 | String ribbon or twine through the bottom loop of the safety pin and wrap all the way around the wires. 

11 | Tie the two ends of your twine together (You can also use hot glue).

What’s the icing on the cake? That you can coordinate your buttons and ribbon to any color combination, light or dark!
