DIY Halloween Cupcake Toppers

I don't consider myself a creative person or even a fan of do-it-yourself projects (they never seem to come out looking as good as the featured photos!). With the HowlOween Pawty around the corner, I wanted to whip up a sweet treat for our Scottie Mom friends and family. So, I set to work on creating a simple cupcake topper design featuring our beloved Scottish Terriers that will add a little trick to your treat this Halloween. Trust me: if I completed this project successfully, you certainly can, too!

For this DIY project, you'll need: lollipop sticks, a pair of scissors, thick paper or cardstock, a color printer, tape, some yummy cupcakes and our free, printable Halloween cupcake topper design. How do you download it, you ask? Simply drop your name and email into the fields below to claim this sweet treat. You'll receive it in your inbox shortly and will automatically be signed up to receive more free Scottie stuff in the future. Doesn't get much sweeter than that, does it?

Now, for the "tough" are the instructions to make your Halloween cupcake toppers.
  1. Download the free, printable design and print the sheet out on cardstock or a thicker paper.
  2. Cut out each circle.
  3. Place the lollipop stick in the center on the back of the circle.
  4. Secure with tape.
  5. Add your own creative touch (like I did with the bows) or go ahead and put these cute toppers in place!
Bonus: This template doubles as the perfect Halloween cupcake topper and festive sticker! If you don't want to take on a DIY project, try printing the free design sheet on Avery 2-inch diameter, round labels (I recommend these) to add a spooktacular touch to party favors or treat bags.
