Halloween Mask Cupcake Toppers

Are you planning a Halloween party, or in charge of bringing the cupcakes to a school or work Halloween party? These cupcake toppers are simple to make, with just a few inexpensive supplies. You can put these cupcake toppers on home-made cupcakes, or you can buy plain cupcakes from the store, and quickly insert your Halloween mask cupcake toppers before the party starts.

This fast Halloween craft is part of a whole week of fast Halloween Crafts this week… that’s right, it is Craft Lightning week! All week long, Angie from The Country Chic Cottage and I will each share a fun and fast Halloween craft in the morning… and each afternoon we’ll share a round-up of fun and fast Halloween crafts from our friends across the web!
