Anybody else find themselves enamored with the adorable mini-buntings adorning cakes all over Pinterest? I love the ease and simplicity of these sweet little cake-toppers and thought I’d come up with a design for Halloween. This would be the perfect touch for a Halloween party!
Add this simple printable jack-o’-lantern bunting to a frosted cake for an adorable Halloween dessert.
Glowing jack-o’-lanterns are one of my favorite Halloween decorations. Several years ago, I took this picture of a smiling pumpkin face. It’s become a favorite image in my Halloween crafting and decorating. Some of you might remember it from the Halloween Glass Tile Pendant tutorial I shared here last year.
I started with a picture of a pumpkin that glowed orange. (A little editing in Photoshop Elements and we’ve got green and purple jack-o’-lantern photos too.)
Supplies Needed for a Halloween Bunting Cake-Topper
- Wooden Skewers (2)
- Cake Bunting Pieces (printed on card stock)
- Baker’s Twine
- White Card stock
- Tiny clothespins (optional for attaching pieces to twine)
You’ll also need a scissors or paper cutter.
How to Assemble a Halloween Party Mini Cake Bunting
Click to download a copy of the Halloween Cake Bunting printable.
Print the cake-topper on white card stock. Cut out the bunting pieces. (Mount the bunting pieces on black card stock if desired. I left mine plain.)
Tie a length of baker’s twine between two skewers and position by poking the skewers into the cake. Use tiny clothespins to attach assorted bunting pieces to the twine. Or try stringing two pieces of twine for a tiered look.
No miniature clothespins handy? Use a pushpin to make holes in the corners and use a needle to string the pieces on the twine before tying each end to the skewers.
Display on a pretty cake stand.
Wasn’t that easy? I hope you enjoyed this simple Halloween cake decoration. These mini-buntings look adorable decorating picture frames, memo boards and even wreaths. Check out how Landee has used other mini banners and buntings for inspiration!
