Ok so you've probably all seen this on Pinterset
I've been pretty much obsessed wit it since I found it (photo credit: http://rusticweddingchic.com/rustic-west-virginia-wedding) But i was having a hard time figuring out how to pull it together.
About 6 months ago I found pine cones while I was hiking. Then about 4 months ago, I ordered a little tiny hat from this website: FactoryDirectCraft.com the description (1 x Mini Black Flocked Felt Top Hat - Size: 2"w x 2"l x 1"h (12767) = $1.29) said it was a top hat, but it actually wasn't exactly what i was looking for, and honestly if i was to do it all over again i would have gotten a slightly larger hat. BUT the shipping was 2x as much as the hat, so I just went with it.
Soooo from inspiration to reality:
I bought two little stands that are used for making icing flowers (i think they're called flower nails and i got them at Michaels in the cake decorating section) and then I just hot glued my pine cones t othem. I cut some nubs off the top of my man pinecone to make the hat fit correctly
and then for the bride I used some tool from my dress and then I had a little line of pearl stickers left over from my card box so I stuck those on there for a little bling
once i got all the stuff together it took about 30 minutes and i'm pretty happy with them!
Very cute! Yes those are called Flower Nails :) And you could add the little ring to the bride to give it a bit more something on the front. Just get a small bead/rhynstone and a little circle :)
That is so cute! Made me smile :)
I don't have any professional pictures yet, but check it out on top of our cake!
the cake is from whole foods and the base was made by my sister in law. It looked awesome!
