And with Halloween party season upon us, these free (free!) downloadable posters, decorations, labels, and games can all make planning a perfectly spooky party so much easier — and less expensive.
Here are some of my favorite Halloween party printables I’ve found around the web from all kinds of generous makers and designers. Please support the talented folks who made them! Because they’re all giving us more time and money to perfect that family Halloween costume idea and put the finishing touches on our jack-o-lantern masterpiece.
Free printable Halloween party decorations
This bat Halloween party printable is reminding me of Kristen’s sons’ brilliant “Catch him, Derry!” costume which definitely ranked among the best Halloween costumes of 2017! (If you haven’t seen it, prepare to laugh.) This project IS an easy one for kids to DIY themselves, with the help of a wire clothes hanger and this tutorial from Elsar blog. Just make sure you click “Translate” when Google prompts you; the instructions are written in Dutch.
I love the idea of having framed prints that I can switch out with the season, maybe in an entryway or on a side table. So I’ll definitely be bookmaking these super free printable Halloween posters at Clementine Creative, which make the perfect not-too-scary greeting for a Halloween party.
Every year, we come back to this amazing free printable giant haunted house coloring page for our Halloween party recommendations. It’s the perfect blend of decor and DIY activity, and our kids pretty much go nuts for it.
Free printables for Halloween party food and treats
Yay for a fabulous printable cake hack for the non-professional cake decorators among us! Thanks to Ashley at the Let’s Mingle blog for this clever bat cake Halloween party printable that I’ll be hanging onto for birthdays, too. Isn’t it just perfect? All you need to do is bake and ice. Or uh…buy one already baked and iced. No judgments.
It’s cracking us up that these Halloween Soda Labels Free Printable at Somewhat Simple are all labeled “100% organic.” Because we don’t accept any artificial sweeteners in our “Monster Mucus,” at this house, thank you very much. Organic or not, these fun, free Halloween party printables definitely upgrade your regular old soda, juice or lemonade bottles.
If your frosted cakes look more like something from Nailed It! than from The Great British Bake-Off (yeah, been there), try using these fun Halloween cupcake wrapper printables from Kraft Mint. No messy food dyes, edible eyeballs or elaborate clean-up needed; it’s a fabulous hack to create cute, on-theme party cupcakes or to make store-bought feel a little more homemade.
Ghost poop, witches warts, jack o’ lantern seeds, vampire vitamins…yum. Print the super clever free printable Halloween Tic Tac labels from Somewhat Simple for a really fun little treat for the kids. I think they’re just awesome.
I know so many parents will be grateful to Squirrelly Minds for coming up with this thoughtful sign for trick-or-treaters with food allergies. Download and hang this allergy-friendly home Halloween printable whether you’re throwing a Halloween party that involves candy (duh) or just handing out treats to the neighborhood Black Panthers and Ruth Bader Ginsburgs. Plenty of families will really appreciate your conscientiousness and kindness.
Free Halloween party treat bag printable
There’s no way kids will eat all of the goodies they collect at Halloween parties — or at least, I really hope there’s no way. So I’m glad The Beauty Dojo has gifted us with these awesome free printable Halloween treat bags that encourage delayed gratification in the cutest way, using little more than white treat bags and some clothes pins.
Free printables for Halloween party games and activities
If you’re like some of us and haven’t visited the recycling center in a while, take heart.

And hey, no bowling shoes required!
A temporary tattoo station is a terrific Halloween party activity idea, and if you’re up for it, you can DIY your own cool tattoos with these gorgeous — I mean scary — watercolor-style free printable Halloween tattoos from Persia Lou. You’ll need to get temporary tattoo paper (we found this pack from our affiliate Amazon, or check your local craft store) but we think the finished result is just perfect for kids and their grownups.
This Free printable I Spy Halloween Game from Teepee Girl helps kids develop a few different skills: counting, matching, and (hopefully) working independently for a few blessed minutes of silence.
This matching game Halloween printable at Fun Loving Families is a fun way to keep younger kids entertained at a Halloween party. It could also be a great addition to non-candy Halloween treats for kids who come to your door, along with those spider rings, temporary tattoos, and mini containers of homemade slime.
If you’re hosting a pumpkin-carving contest at your Halloween party, definitely check out this clever, free pumpkin carving scorecard printable at Alice and Lois. Its four categories guarantee every kid can be a winner at something, which is always a nice way to go.
If you have younger trick-or-treaters who are better off without a ton of detail in their coloring pages, try these sweet free printable color-your-own Halloween masks from It’s Always Autumn. I love the simplified version of a sugar skull, plus some other Halloween favorites like kitty cats and Frankenstein — which make perfect photo booth props when the kids are done!
