Halloween Cupcake Free Crochet Pattern



When I think of October, I can’t help but thinking of Halloween!


October is such a fun month...not only my favorite season is at its best with the colorful trees, the pumpkins and the cinnamon aroma everywhere, but also it looks like everyone is busy prepping porches and front yards for the spookiest night of the year!


I love walking around the neighborhood to spot all the scary decorations - gigantic spiders, carved pumpkins, skeletons and spiderwebs! What about you? Will you be decorating your house for Halloween?


Today, I'll be sharing a little Halloween project - super easy to make, this cupcake is just the perfect spooky addition to your Halloween table!
