I generally have a rule about rushing the season… that is, I try not to. But Halloween has been in the stores for so long now that it’s starting to go on clearance. So today, I’m officially kicking off the Halloween season here on The Cake Blog! And what better way to start things off than with a fun Halloween Cupcake Liner Craft? If you’re a regular reader, you know we love a good cupcake liner craft! And why not? They’re adorable, easy and make great use of the extra cupcake liners we all have lying around.
Over the weekend, I got into the Halloween spirit and came up with a fun new tutorial for you. In a few simple steps, you’ll brew up these bewitching Halloween cupcake toppers. So break out your scissors, extra baking liners and let’s get started! Perfect for Halloween treats and easy enough for the kids to craft… hope you enjoy my Cupcake Liner Witch Hats!
CUPCAKE LINER WITCH HATS
a DIY by Carrie Sellman
Mini Cupcake Liners
Double Sided Tape
STEP 1: Grab a regular sized cupcake liner. Fold liner in half. Fold in half again, creating a pie-like wedge. Tape the two flaps together using double sided tape, so that you have one solid triangle.
STEP 2: Fold in half again. Tape again. Now you should have a tall skinny wedge that is 1/8 the size of your original circle. If your liner is now a flat triangle due to folding, fluff it up with your finger so that it makes a cone.
STEP 3: Insert a toothpick into your cupcake and place your cone on top of the toothpick. This is the body of your hat. The toothpick will help your hat stay in place.
STEP 4: Grab a mini cupcake liner. Cut a hole in the middle of the liner. I found it easiest to do this by folding it in half and then cutting out a ‘C’ shape on the folded edge. Open up liner and slightly flatten with your hand. This will be the brim.
STEP 5: Slide the brim down over your cone to complete the hat. Smush and crinkle to add character. Bend the tip of the hat, if desired.
Whether they top off your delectable homemade cupcakes, spruce up some store bought sweets or provide a Halloween activity for the kiddos… I hope you enjoy these Cupcake Liner Witch Hats!
