a few final wedding projects...


i kept a few wedding projects until the last minute.  i'm a bit of a procrastinator, i have to admit...  :)

anyway, one of the last minute projects that we wanted to do was a cake topper for the grooms cake.  kyle had found some really cute polymer clay ones online that i became obsessed with, so i decided to recreate some (for, well, a lot cheaper than we could have purchased them for.  just an fyi).  i adore penguins, so he had found some really cute ones.

so a trip to michael's, two bags of pluffy and about two hours later, we had our penguin groom's cake topper!

here they are in all their little penguin glory:

i painted the bride's bow red and the groom's tie aqua.  i LOVED them!  when i get the professional pictures, i'll be sure to post a few!  i figured i'd have to settle for something not quite as cool as what he had found online, but i guess those two years of ceramics in college really paid off!  yay, fine arts!

project total:
clay - 2 bags of clay at $2.99 (used a 40% off coupon)
paint - 2 bottles of paint at $.99
around $8

$160 cake topper found online can suck it!
