I will admit that we have been completely holding back on posting Halloween decor and craft ideas just yet. Can’t we get through September yet? Well, we guess not. Because Martha Stewart’s Halloween Issue just hit the stands, and we’ve got some exclusive template and clip art to share. Just, you know, to bookmark for later.

Now admittedly a lot of the designs are very classic–nothing too cheeky or outrageous. However I happen to love these printable Halloween beverage labels which turn any beverage a little more scary. Maybe the cyanide soda label goes on some rice wine? (Sorry.)

Halloween cupcake toppers are a must and I like these three flags that are ready to print and fold. Stick with the smiling pumpkin for younger kids.

This cool printable Halloween party invitation just needs some printing on grey card stock, then some folding. Add the matching address label printables for the complete package.

Print one of the cute Halloween medalion printables on heavy paper, punch a hole, and hang. Or if you’re me, just tape it to the door and call it a day.

Instead of carving pumpkins with little ones, you’ll find Halloween pumpkin cut-and-color printables like a crow, a bloody eyeball, or an owl. Print to size, then let your kids color them in before affixing them to your pumpkin; they’ll be so proud of their work. Plus there’s templates for some basic costumes, masks, pumpkin etchings and more.

I suppose all things equal, better to gather it all up now than to be like me most years, scrambling to find one decent looking pumpkin on October 30. –Liz
