Bat and Raven Halloween Cupcake Toppers

Written by: | Published: September 06, 2016 | Updated: August 16, 2022

Grab your cutting machine and get ready to make super quick and easy Bat and Raven Halloween Cupcake Toppers. When you are hosting a Halloween party, little accents like cupcake picks are a great way to spruce up the decor without a ton of money or time. You can make fancy cut designs in no time with your Cricut machine. These bat and raven cut outs are a great Halloween craft that fits all kinds of party themes.

I’ve created my cupcake toppers with standard black cardstock. However, for a cute kid party, you could cut just the bat design and use different Halloween colored cardstock, thank orange, green, purple and maybe black.

  1. Follow the onscreen instructions to cut out the bat and raven designs. I’ve set up a Cricut Canvas you can use. You must buy the designs to be able to cut them.
  2. Apply a small bit of glue to the end of a toothpick, press the toothpick to the back of the cut out shape. Alternatively, you can use two cut out shapes, glued together, and place the toothpick in between them.

Tip: Tape works well too when you are in a hurry and don’t have time to wait for glue to dry.

The raven and bat cut out shapes both have fancy cut lines included in the designs. I used the base silhouette of each design, but you could get really fancy and use the detailed cut for your decor instead.
