Create glitter cake topper numbers to help celebrate any birthday! An easy DIY craft tutorial idea that can also be used as photo props.
Last week my oldest daughter became a teenager. AHHHH! I now have two teenagers in the house and I have decided that I am not old enough for this. I have tried to boycott this, but Morgan didn’t care about my feelings and said she was turning 13 anyways. Typical teenager.

How to Make Glitter Cake Topper Numbers
Begin by cutting out two sets of numbers. I used my Cricut Explore to make sure the numbers were exactly the same size. Two sets needed because one set will be the front and the other will be the back.
Keep track of which number is the front and which number is the back and decorate the front of each side.
For the backside of the numbers, Squeeze a large dollop of the glitter glue on the number and spread it across the paper using a paintbrush. The numbers will curl a little bit when they are wet but will flatten out as they dry.
For the front numbers, apply the glitter glue a bit thicker and press the sequins into the glue. I found it easier to do smaller sections at a time when adding the sequins so the glitter glue doesn’t dry before I get to it.
Set the numbers aside to dry.
To assemble, lay the backside numbers glitter down. Apply a little bit of hot glue at the base of the number and adhere the skewer.
Add more hot glue all over the number and place the sequence numbers on top, covering up the skewers.
The Sequins Numbered Cake Topper is done! Or in this case, they are Pie Toppers. This girl is after my own heart and LOVES pie. So her birthday cake was actually a cherry pie, and it was delicious!
But whether you put them into a cake or a pie, this cake topper is so cute and pretty simple to do! They make great picture props too!
