Spook Up Your Party with DIY Halloween Printables

DIY Halloween Printables

Halloween is the time to flex your creativity, and that goes beyond making the best costume (although that's important, too!). This fall, throw yourself into party planning DIY-style and personalize every aspect of your spooky soiree using Halloween printables. Invitations, masks, accessories, pumpkins, snack presentation - can all be crafted using a Canon PIXMA TS printer.

Set the tone with clever DIY printable Halloween invitations

Dem bones are the basis for these hauntingly adorable Bag O' Bones Halloween Party Invitations, which you can print yourself, thanks to Mr Printables. The bones tumble out of the envelope, and your guests will have to assemble them to read the details about your party. Bonus points if you print both the recipient's address and sender's address on Halloween-themed labels that brim with bats, ghosts, pumpkins, goblins and haunted houses.

Print your way to the perfect jack-o-lantern

No Halloween party is complete without a mind-blowing pumpkin! But you don't have to be a talented pumpkin artist to carve a jack-o-lantern to remember. All you need is a Canon PIXMA TS printer. Pumkinlady.com created more than 700 pumpkin patterns, templates, and stencils and they're all free - just download, print and carve away. Choose from all the classics, including witches, cats, bats, spiders and toothy grins, or get creative with patriotic flags, clowns, penguins, and even Abraham Lincoln's face.

Play with your food

What other time of year is it good to be grossed out by food? Halloween encourages cooks to put a little flair - like some hot dogs that resemble human fingers - into their party planning. A few ideas: deviled eggs crawling with spiders, cheeseballs that look like bats and mummy meringues. But wait, you're not done yet! Make sure your guests remember what they're celebrating. Top your eyeball cupcakes and other items with mini tombstones using this template from Chickabug and cap off your cake with flying bats from Free Pretty Printables. For items in jars, print out these vintage apothecary labels from Worldlabel and put them on apothecary jars of gummy worms or on the blood-red sangria dispenser.

Make your own masks

Why spend a lot of money on an expensive mask this year when you can print your own at home? Cat masks, monster masks, skull masks, spider masks - take your pick with these comical options from Mr Printables. Just download the pattern and use paper or even trying matte paper and a few craft items (glue, string or rubber bands) and you're ready to get the party started.

Don't forget the favors

Whether you're sending guests home with candy (like lollipops with oween holders), games or other treats, put them in printable, easy-to-assemble treat bags courtesy of polkadotchair.com or print your own treat-bag toppers using downloads from Etsy. Did you know you can print your own stickers?
