These crocheted heart cake toppers are a lovely way to bring a bit of handcrafted charm to your wedding! They are easy to assemble and will give you a timeless look of vintage elegance to top off your wedding day.



 


Materials Needed:


Crocheted dollie (purchased at local craft store), kitchen skewers cut to size, glue, water, a mixing bowl and spoon & scissors.



Step 1: Cut out a heart shape in each dollie by folding them in half and cutting 1/2 heart shape through both layers.



Step 2: In a mixing bowl, stir together two parts water to one part school glue.



Step 3: Drench the entire crocheted heart into the bowl, making sure it gets completely saturated.



Step 4: Lay out the wet shaped dollie on wax paper or a kitchen pan to dry, allow at least 24 hours dry time to ensure the crocheted heart has been hardened by the glue.


 


Step 5: Using a dab of glue, secure the kitchen skewer to the back of the dollie to finish the crocheted heart cake topper. Voila! You have a gorgeous homemade accessory for your event.
