Halloween Template Round-Up

It's only 10 days now until the witching hour is here, and I'm so excited! We're having a small, somewhat impromptu get-together at our home with some friends, so I've been scouring the web for DIY projects, decoration and recipe ideas, and free templates. I've come across oodles of stylish tags, labels, garlands and more that you can print at home that are perfect for today's Thrifty Thursday post.

Last month I was introduced via Twitter to Matthew Mead, who is a celebrity lifestyle and entertaining expert. His site is crammed with downloadable goodies, but here are a few of my favs. Click here to see the rest of his printables.

Wicked labels.

Ghost garland.

Treat box.

Paper Crave is another great place for freebies. They've been tempting the cravings of paper nuts since 2006, and in 2008 they uploaded some great printables that are still available. You can go to their Halloween freebies page here. They also have their own roundup of freebies going, full of templates to download. Check out Part 1 here, and Part 2 here.

Cute garland.

Illustrated labels.

Via the Twig and Thistle blog I came upon these super chic printables from Shauna Younge, a dessert table designer from Minneapolis. I especially love the tags for the brownie bites, which I will mostly like download for our little party. Get the links to download these freebies here.

Treat flag labels.

Candy bar wrappers.

Simple, last-minute invites.

Then there is always the fabulous Martha Stewart. Her site is a never-ending supply of ideas for the holidays. I have been on a silhouette kick while decorating house and downloaded the black cat. You can find a gallery of her Halloween templates here, here and here.

I love treat boxes, if you couldn't tell.

If we had stairs, I would do this in a heartbeat.

Great idea if yo have wall space that needs some spook.

Chic paper lanterns.

Great way to finish candy bags.

Lastly, I fell in love with these creepy and chic BOO blocks from the love&lace blog. You can find her Tutorial and BOO template here.



Yes, you do have to break out your crafty pants to make these work, but I know you can do it. You may have to buy some paper goods and supplies, but I can assure you it'll still be cheaper than getting stuff that's already finished.

If none of these suit your style, check out some of your favorite magazines and see if they have ideas or freebies on their site. Or just Google phrases like "free halloween templates."

Hope these leave you inspired to create a thrifty (but still stylish) Halloween!
