Pinning it Down~ Rainbow Unicorns

Well this week's Pinning it Down post is Birthday related again! Bunny's Party is this week and things are in full swing! Yesterday I made the cake topper for her birthday cake! I have pinned some amazingly sweet unicorn cakes. All of them have 6 amazing rainbow layers (we will be doing that with my sister in law on Friday) and they all have amazing little unicorns on the top of them! Some of the bithdays that have really inspired me are This green one here, and this blue one here. Well we have to have a unicorn on the top of the cake for the Unicorn birthday party! So I was off to Etsy to see what I could find. Well everything was a wee bit more then I was would be able to swing. Then I found the sweetest unfinished wooden unicorns here. They were the perfect size, the perfect price, and they really cute! I ordered quite a few of them, since the kids will paint them at Bunny's Party. I however painted the ones for the cake! I used basic white acrylic paint for the body, different rainbow colored acrylic paint for the mane and tail, and glitter to put over the colors!!!! Here is how they turned out.

I really think that Bunny is going to love them! I am going to coat them heavily with clear coat so that the glitter doesn't come off as badly in the cake. These are still a surprise for Bunny. I am so excited to see what she thinks!
This post has been linked up to Pinning it Down. This linky party was made for all of us out there trying to make the habit of doing things off our our Pintrest Boards! I hope you stop by there and see all the fun that people are having! Maybe you'll be inspired to join us! Happy Crafting!
