Happy Monday all! My mind this week turns to all things birthday with the other half's big day due sometime this week, which may or may not be accompanied by a very exciting parcel. So what better craft to kick off the Birthday Week than a cake cover? This was super-duper easy. I bought a cheap mesh cake cover from Ikea and spray painted it dark silver to start with. Then I found a cheap sprig of fake mini roses from a craft shop and removed each bloom and leaf, do this carefully so as to keep about 3-5mm of the stem intact.
Next I used a glue gun to attach the flowers and leaves. One by one, add a little drop of glue in equally spaced spots on the cover and poke through the blooms and the leaves. If the stem is too big for the holes, simply cut it down with a pair of scissors. Remember to do this project with newspaper underneath to catch any pesky glue drips. Use your cover for condiments outside in the summer, or cake at your next tea party or even a cheerful way to cover food whilst it defrosts.
