I know, I know – normally you’re aiming for ‘spooky’ or ‘scary’ when it comes to Halloween decorations. But if you’re looking for something a little, well, cuter – then look no further. These bat toppers are just so cute! A few black pom poms, paper and toothpicks and you’re all set. Bonus points for using a craft punch that usually only sees action during the winter holidays!
Step 1: Punch out holly leaves, snip into ‘wings.’
Step 2: Dab glue on and insert wings into pom pom.
Step 3: Punch out white paper, then use black Sharpie to draw on eyes (or simply glue on some googly eyes).
Step 4: Glue eyes onto pom poms.
Step 5: Glue toothpick to underside of bat.
Step 6: Insert toppers into cupcakes. Enjoy!
PS: If you have any leftover bats, glue them to a paper straw for spooky sipping.
