Instead of a pot-of-gold at the end of my rainbow… I always wish for cake! Lucky for me, this adorable rainbow felt cake topper is the perfect solution for celebrating this week. Saint Patrick’s Day is just as much about rainbows, wishes and sweet treats as it is shamrocks and leprechauns. So let’s see where the end of this rainbow will lead us… I have a feeling it will be sweet.
To make the felt ball rainbow topper you’ll need: felt balls (here’s my favorite source for buying them), jewelry wire, and of course a cake!
Start making the rainbow felt cake topper by inserting the wire into the first felt ball, turn the wire in a constant motion to get it through. Continue pushing the wire through each felt ball (elbow grease necessary!). Once you thread a rainbows worth of felt ball colors, shape the wire into a rainbow shape, leaving about 2 inches exposed wire on each end of the rainbow.
Stick the two ends of the wire into the cake for a lucky dose of bright fun.
The felt balls are easily moved off the wire and you can reuse them for other projects. Follow the same directions with a much longer wire to create the felt rainbow garland to go along with the cake.
Use this sweet rainbow detail to top any Saint Patricks’s Day treat and brighten up the week with colorful, lucky style!
