Spider Web Cake Topper DIY

by Chiara Alberetti Milott

Did you know it only takes an hour for a spider to spin a web? That’s about how long it takes to create this simple cake topper using just a sheet of paper. Then attach a plastic spider for the final touch.  Make sure your guests do not get caught in your web when you serve them cake!

Cupcake Costume

Hey cupcake! Today we’re sharing another sweet little Halloween costume with you. Fergi came up with this really clever way to get the shape with hula hoops! She is a genius. I love how the person wearing it can squat down and they “turn into” the cupcake. Get all the details below and find ALL of our Halloween costumes right here.

Pom Pom Bat Cupcake Toppers DIY

by Chiara Alberetti Milott

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!
