DIY Golden Animal Cupcake Toppers

This has got to be one of the least expensive DIYs ever. Plastic animals, candle holders, and gold spray paint come together to create cute, customized cupcake toppers. This adorable, easy tutorial via {this is glamorous} was just too cute to pass by.

Want to make these shimmery toppers for yourself? They're perfect for a kids party or an animal lover. You could choose different breeds of dog or little peacock figurines for a cool touch.


1. use any type of plastic animal you can find, keeping in mind the size of the cake or cupcake you are planning to top; ones with a flat back work best

2. with the pliers, hold the animal steady, and drill a hole straight down, being careful not to come out the other side; the hole only has to be deep enough for the candle holder to fit

3. spray paint the animals in a few light coats, rotating them to cover all sides; note: gold/metallic spray paint will work fine without primer, but if you are using regular spray paint for colour variations, be certain to use a plastic spray paint or a primer for plastic, and always test one first

4. spray the candle holders to match

5. put on your dancing shoes & pop open the champagne
