have you seen those wooden initals they sell at walmart?? maybe you could hot glue some crystals to one. If that would be too big maybe taking some sort of wire and shapping it to the inital and then hot glueing the crystals to that. hope this helps

Hi Meandmine! I've been searching for a source for the initials for a wedding cake topper without a great deal of success.

I looked at the wooden ones at Walmart last week, and didn't buy them because they seem too thick to me (at least 1/2") and they aren't very tall, so seemed a little chunky, but for a child's cake they might be fine. I think they were only about a dollar each.

Walmart will also have a good selection of beads and stones to decorate it with, but I'd recommend buying a good clear glue to put them on with, hot glue is good for a lot of things, but I don't think it willhold the stones/sequins, etc. on these initials very well, particularly not with children handling them.

In the meantime, I am still looking for reasonably priced lucite or lightweight metal initials that we can glue swarovski crystals on! Janice
