Hot Glue Gun Confetti Heart Cake Topper 17



We had a blast when we made our New Year Confetti Hot glue gun numbers and we had a rather large amount of confetti left, so we decided to have a go at making a hot glue gun confetti heart cake topper for valentines day.

This is a fab DIY craft to make a confetti heart, which is perfect as a cake topper for celebrations and if you only confetti one side they make a brilliant window cling. You could make any shape, letter, or number. You could even frame it as art instead of putting a toothpick in it as a cake topper

Both of my boys are obsessed with using the hot glue gun, so I made sure that they got involved and helped me make them and I can see every occasion and celebration this year having confetti cake toppers!

How to make Confetti Heart Cake Toppers

Print off your template for your letters of numbers.  You can make one on Word and place it underneath your parchment paper.  You should be able to see your template through it.   Or you can do like we did and use a cookie cutter as a template directly onto the parchment paper.

Trace over your template with glue onto the parchment paper.  Allow it to dry before adding another couple of layers of glue.

Add your cocktail stick into the glue before the next layer of hot glue.  If you are using a low melt glue gun, you want to add about 2 inches of glue before piling on some confetti and continuing round your number, stopping every couple of inches to add more confetti.  If you are using a hot melt one, then you can trace the whole of the heart and pile on the confetti!

Allow your glue to completely set before peeling it off the parchment paper.

Before turning over and repeating on the other side.  If you have confetti on the larger side (like we did) then you can trim the edges with a pair of scissors.
