Crochet Heart Cake Topper Pattern

 Easy DIY Crochet Heart Cake Toppers

I want to share with you a cute pattern to make your own crochet heart cake toppers.

They look great with cupcakes or you could even make a few to decorate a wedding cake with a handmade vibe.

I used a thin thread (from Anchor) to make the ones in the photos and it was a bit fiddly at times.

The larger the crochet hook you use the bigger the crochet hearts will get.

This was a fun little project and people have asked where I got the cake toppers from and if they were easy to make.

I hope you enjoy this pattern and have a great time making them!

  • Anchor pearl cotton crochet thread
  • Toy stuffing
  • Sticks – either barbeque skewers or toothpicks
  • Glue


  • 0.60mm crochet hook
  • Scissors
  • Darning needle


  • With your yarn choice and a 0.60mm crochet hook make a slipknot
  • Ch 3 – join to form a circle
  • R1 – ch 1, work 9 sc through the centre of the ring.
  • R2 – 18 sc – work 2 sc into every stitch around.
  • R3 – Work sc into every stitch (18)
  • R4 – One sc in every stitch (18)
  • Complete 4 more rounds of 18.
  • Make 2 of these circle pieces – In the first circle to end – slip stitch to even the round, cut your yarn and thread through.
  • In the second circle – leave 5 remaining sc before you finish.
  • Attaching the circles together – There is 13 sc on round 4 of the second circle piece – now work the two pieces together.
  • Count 5 stitches back on the first circle piece and sc the two pieces together back to back.
  • R5 – work 1 sc in every stitch around – until you come back to the beginning tail.
  • R6 – work in the round – sc – there will be a decrease at each side of the heart.
  • To decrease – put your hook through the first stitch, wrap yarn over, pull it through – 2 loops on hook – put hook through next stitch, yarn over then pull yarn through when you have 3 loops on hook.
  • Work sc until you come to the opposite side, decrease on the opposite side.
  • Continue to do this for all rounds until the heart is forming a point.
  • Stuff the heart with toy stuffing or polyfill as you go, as the opening will get smaller and harder to work.
  • In the last round – one sc decrease in each stitch around.
  • Cut the yarn and pull tail through to secure. Sew remaining stitches together.
  • Insert a stick into the pointed end of the heart and secure with a little bit of glue.
  • Your cake topper will be ready to use!
