Make Your Own 3D Pumpkin Cupcake Topper
You can change up the supplies you use to make the theme you are trying to create. I used a standard cardstock in orange and green, but you could change up the look by using black and white or maybe a patterned paper.

Decorate your cupcakes to match the theme. For a pumpkin patch look (perfect with pumpkin spice, right?), I used a fork to create some texture in a spiced frosting. Then I sprinkled some cinnamon and gold sugar sprinkles. For a Halloween look, change out the cupcake wrappers to Halloween colors and add some chocolate drizzle to the top of each cupcake.
Next, add the pumpkin toppers. First, you will need to cut the pumpkins from the paper and assemble each one. You can get the full instructions for assembling these cute paper pumpkins here. You can also get the free SVG file for uploading to your Cricut at that link.
To create the cupcake pick with the paper pumpkins, simply add a toothpick to the bottom center of each pumpkin. You can secure into place with a little glue.
Then just place on your cupcakes to create the desired look. Repeat for as many cupcakes as you need for your party or event.
