In a recent blog entry I shared the instructions for making clay toppers with the help of cookie cutters. You can check out that blog here. We decided to make clay toppers for Daddy's/Hubby's donuts and some decorations for Poppy's (my dad's) hamper.
My daughter and I headed off to Spotlight and picked up some clay, paint, glue and paint brushes and we were ready for action! I cut out the little letters from the clay using our 41 piece alphabet, number and punctuation set, used a mini heart cutter for the hearts and used our tractor with embossed details to make Poppy's tractor.
Here's the cut outs ready for the oven:
Below is Poppy's gift hamper. We stocked it full of his favourite things including salamis, sauces, some special seafood themed cookies made by Spoon & Fork and a special painting from Emmy. We painted POPPY in his favourite team colours also. This is the best thing about creating your own custom toppers, you can really personalise them for the recipient. We stuck the clay cutouts on toothpicks and once dry stabbed them into some styrofoam wrapped in black tissue paper.
Trent's (Daddy's) donuts with clay toppers are below. I knew this one would be a hit with his sweet tooth! Emmy is just testing that the chocolate sprinkles taste OK.
