    Today we’ve got a sweet little DIY that is perfect for any party or event, big or small. My favorite online wedding marketplace, Your Cloud Parade teamed up with one of their shops, Typologie and Co, to bring Oh Lovely Day this cute DIY cake topper. It is simple and so pretty.

    What you’ll need:  scissors, bamboo skewers, different shades of ribbon to get the ombré effect, and a cake, of course!

    First, cut several 14 inch strips of ribbon in each color.  You’ll need enough to tie across your cake.

    While alternating colors, tie each ribbon across one ribbon (the base of the garland) using a crow hitch knot (shown above).

    Carefully cinch each knot going in the same direction across the base ribbon until you get all the way across.

    Once complete, insert your skewers into the cake, letting the ribbon hang free.

       Three things: 1. You've got one day left to enter my @mywildbird sling giveaway, so head over to my blog (link in profile) and tag your friends. 2. I was featured on @loyal_hana blog as part of their motherhood series, so if you want to give it a read and hear about my typical (hot mess) day or how I (don't) balance work and mothering head to their profile to find the link to their site. I pretty much live in their nursing-friendly clothes and was honored to be featured. 3. Charlie took this picture (and basically directed me for the shot) and it makes me really really happy   Putting the finishing touches on the boys' bedroom and had to stop to admire the magic that the morning light and their @babyjives mobile was making. ✨☁️⭐️❤️✨#charlieandcalsroomredo
