Easter cake topper (estate sale) makeover...

When I picked up these plastic cake toppers at the Friday estate sale, I didn't think baking...I thought crafting! 

I purchased the picture frames from the Dollar Tree, painted them white and coated them in glitter.

The glass was removed from the frame and scrapbooking paper was glued to the frame backing. Miniature wooden Easter ornaments were added for a bit more dimension.

 The pink garland trim was also a Dollar Tree purchase.  The pink scrapbooking paper is currently available in a bundle at the $1 bins at Michaels.

Totally kitschy.  

It's almost March.  I think the rest of my Easter decorations are coming out this weekend.

I remember having a coconut bunny cake made from one of those with jellybeans on it! I saw one recently and thought the same thing - craft! I really love what you did with them, I couldn't decide but now I may have to do something similar! Totally cute!

Totally kitschy and totally cool! Those are adorable. I don't know if I would have known they were cake toppers if I would have found them. You have a great eye.

Just wanted to let you know I got my Easter swap package! Yours already sent today. I'm savoring the cute polka dot box and will try to wait til the week-end to open it. (C'mon willpower, LOL!) Hopefully yours will arrive by the week-end!
