We love when our own readers share cool things with us, and in the case of Nicola Pravato of Next to Nicx, I’m so happy she brought to our attention her squee-cute kawaii Halloween printables that are awesome for upcoming Halloween parties.
She is one talented designer — we fell in love with her Stormtrooper easter eggs earlier this year — and I absolutely adore her style.
Check out the free downloadable templates and comprehensive instructions on her blog; they’re not your basic crafting 101 stuff, and you will need an X-Acto knife and some good quality paper to print on, but the results? Wow.
She’s also got a tutorial for some seriously outrageous kawaii Halloween cupcakes which I could never do in a million years. But since she knows that she is the professional designer and I am not, she’s also made the designs available as simple free printable downloads, featuring the world’s cutest bat, ghost, and Frankenstein monster. You can use them as cupcake toppers, or get creative with them – cut out the characters and tape them onto ready made goody bags, clip a ton of them to a string and drape it like a Halloween garland, or just let the kids decorate your front door with them for Halloween.
Good chance it will be the cutest front door on the whole block.
