What you will need to make this cake topper for a first birthday, or any birthday.. Just change the number. 

White rafia (or use gold or silver with a colored number) 3.99 for whole bag
Dowel stick or thick wire .50
Vintage German glass glitter $2.99
Letter or number .99
Glue gun
Elmer's glue
Gold spray paint

Spray paint your letter, I used gold spray paint
Once it dries, smear Elmer's glue all over the letter 
Sprjnkle the vintage glitter all over, not to miss the sides
Set aside

Cut a small peice of oaper as long as the bottom of your number (mine was 1 1/2 inches.
Hot glue your rafia piece by piece to your paper
Take the dowel or wire and hot glue fun it to the back of your number. Once dried, take your paper that you cut with the rafia hanging from it and hot glue that over the stick to secure the stick. Press firm and let dry. 
I added more rafia with hot glue to the front of the number in front if the stick just to fill it in more.
That's it! So easy and I can use this for my next little baby (if it's a girl) :)
