Dessert never looked more festive with DIY Halloween cupcake toppers! Printables, card stock and craft picks make it super easy (and inexpensive) to add that final touch to your Halloween table.
We’ve got three cute designs—a bat and shouts of ‘beware’ and ‘boo.’ Use one or mix it up with all three!
You’ll want to insert wood craft sticks rather than toothpicks. They’re not only flat, which makes it easier to glue into place; they’re also longer. Your topper will stand up tall without budging.
Don’t limit to just cupcakes—place them in appetizers, sandwiches, or anywhere you want to display the Halloween spirit.
