DIY Lace Trim Cake Bunting

Hi guys! I hope you all are having a fun week! After a fun girls getaway, we are heading home from DC today. The city was so fantastic! I’ll be sharing a few of my favorite pics from our trip soon. Today I have a super easy and fun diy project for you, a lace trim cake bunting.  This bunting can be whipped up in just a few minutes and makes a super sweet addition to your spring cakes!

What You Need:

*Bamboo Skewers

*Lace Trim -1/2 to 2/3 yard


*Thread and needle

*Paint (optional)


If you would like to paint your skewers, do so first. Once the paint is dried you are ready to go. Clip your trim to two pieces. I made mine 8.5″ and 10″  long. Thread your needle and thread through the end of one side of your trim. Clip the thread to about 4 or five inches. Now tie the threaded end of trim onto your skewer and knot securely. You can add a dab of glue for added security if you like. Repeat with other side and other skewer. Once you have the first strand tied, thread and tie the bottom strand of trim to the skewers right under the first strand. To finish, tie a small length of ribbon in a bow on each side of the skewer where the trim is tied. Now you are ready to use your bunting in your favorite cake.

I love this sweet bunting! It is lovely and feminine, and makes an adorable topper! This bunting would be perfect for a Mother’s day cake or even for a baby or bridal shower. I will be sharing my new favorite cake recipe soon. The best thing about this bunting is that it is so simple and customizable! I hope I have inspired some of you all to give this one a try. You’ll love it!

Happy Crafting!

    This is so pretty, Ashlee! I really love the bunting lace that you used. The cake looks yummy too :) That’s not very nice, making us wait for the recipe. Lol.

  2. This is beautiful! Where did you find the lace trim?

    • Thank you Jen! I bought my lace at a local fabric store. You can find sweet lace online too. Give etsy a look, or search out a local independent fabric store in your area :)
