Birds of a feather... marry together!
Here's how to create your own rustic lovebird-themed cake topper.
Cut out the base of your cake topper. Sand the rough edges
Sculpt a small round ball out of clay. Pinch one end into a point (the tail of the bird) and elongate the other end. Pinch the very tip of the elongated end into a beak.
Make two birds out of clay and allow them to fully dry.
Paint the birds with acrylic paint. I gave them two coats, plus a coat of sparkly sealant.
Create the outline of your cage using the wire. Add on curved lengths of wire to create the full cage.
To make the perch, wind the wire around the dowel or pencil and gently slide off. Attach the perch to the top of the cage.
