1: Draw or print out a paper template for your wooden cake toppers. I drew hearts in three sizes. Using the templates, cut out hearts on the wood sheets.

2: Stick cellophane tape across your wooden hearts. Now, paint one side of the wooden heart, and the tape will help you keep a straight edge. I taped my hearts at different angles and used two paint colours to get a fun, colourful look. Set your wooden hearts aside to dry.
