Are any of you hosting a Valentine's fete tonight or tomorrow? I'm loving that this heart-filled holiday falls on a weekend. There's time for a Galentine's soiree with your besties and Sunday brunch with your love. And if there are sweets involved (there should be), we've got this chic last-minute DIY for you to try. Why buy a cake topper when you can craft one as cute as this? Super simple how-to below!

Thin, sturdy cardboard
Gold confetti
Hot glue gun
Scissors and/or x-acto knife
Wooden skewer


step-1Cut a heart shape out of your cardboard using scissors, and then cut the inner portion of your heart out with an x-acto knife.

step-2Glue your cardboard heart cutout to a wooden skewer.

step-3Put hot glue all over your cardboard heart cutout and skewer (leaving room at the end bare to stick in your cake) and then cover your hot glued areas with gold confetti.
