Halloween Cupcake Toppers – Tutorial

Halloween Cupcake Topper Tutorial - How to print and assemble 2" cupcake toppersHalloween Cupcake Toppers

Are you ready for HALLOWEEN?  I know that if you’re like me, you’d like to do something cute and crafty but don’t have a lot of time.  Putting together Halloween Cupcake Toppers is super simple – and takes less time than you’d think!  These two inch Halloween party circles are pretty versatile and fast to assemble.  Here’s a tutorial on how to assemble them: the fast and easy way!

Step 1:  Print out the pdf on plain white cardstock and assemble your supplies.  I needed:

  • white cardstock
  • paper trimmer
  • lollipop sticks (I used the 4″ but I also like the 6″)
  • ribbon/yarn (I used orange yarn and black velvet ribbon)
  • glue (I typically use Elmers White glue because it dries clear but I was in a hurry and just used tape!)
  • 2″ punches (I used my 2″ round and 2″ scalloped punch from Fiskars)
The supplies all ready to go!

Step 2:  After printing, cut the cardstock into strips using your paper trimmer.  I typically cut across so that I have 4 rows of 3 toppers.

Step 3:  Once you have them in rows, flip your circle punch upside down and make sure that the image is centered.  If it’s not centered, trim the strip slightly and test it again.

Step 4:  Attach your popsicle stick or lollipop sticks to the back of the topper. (I cheated this time and just used clear tape (Scotch).  I usually use Elmers white glue because it dries clear and it gives me the flexibility to move the stick around before it dries.
