How To Make A Layered Pumpkin Carriage Cake Topper
Start by uploading your Pumpkin Carriage cake topper layered SVG files to Cricut Design Space. You should have 6 or 7 or layers.
- Green Wheels Layer
- Back wheels circle layer, duplicate this layer
- Top wheel layer, duplicate this layer (optional if you dont want candy wheels)
- Top pumpkin layer rose gold
- Back pumpkin layer pink glitter
- White offset layer ( I would use a different color next time)
- Back layer (I used holographic card)
Measure your baubles and size your circle (back wheels layer) in Cricut Design Space as a guide the same size. Now, size your green wheels layer so your circle fits perfectly over the wheels with a border around the inside. The aim is the candy bauble will go over the top you pop the candy in and glue the circles onto the back.
Size all the layers to the exact size of your green wheels layer so it looks like the image below, colour the layers so you know which is which and send the layers to cut.
Building Your Layered Pumpkin Carriage SVG
When your project is cut, line up all the layers to check they align correctly. You should have 6 or 7 layers depending on whether you are having the spoke wheels or candy wheels.
Start by attaching the baubles to the top of the wheel with super glue. Put a fine layer of superglue around the edges of the bauble and hold until secure. You need to position them correctly so they line up like the picture above and allow the glue to dry. I left it an hour before the next step.
When they are dry, turn them over and fill them with candy, then glue the back circles in place and allow them to dry.
Put this to one side and build your carriage from the back. Attach the back two layers with sticky pads. However, the two carriage body layers must be attached and glued to the main body so it sits flat if you use candy wheels. If not, use sticky pads to build.
Now glue the wheels to the base of the pumpkin carriage and use nuvo drops to create a carriage door handle.
