Here’s a treat: free printable Halloween party decorations to spook up your table! My kids are young so I wanted to make festive table decorations for our neighborhood Halloween potluck that weren’t too gory. I started by making a clever printable skeleton “doily.”
Doilies are typically very sweet and delicate so I liked the idea of combining that throwback sweetness with a little spooky. I loved how the orange skeleton doily turned out so I added green and purple…
And I couldn’t stop! It was like I was possessed by the skeletons and kept making more free printable Halloween party decorations like these printable cup wrappers…
…and these printable Halloween place cards and printable Halloween table food markers (that YOU can personalize yourself using Adobe Reader 9, a free download)…
…some printable Halloween napkin rings…
…and a festive printable Halloween skeleton hanging banner.
This post is sponsored by HP and all opinions are mine. My free printable Halloween party decorations printed beautifully using my new HP Photosmart 7520 e-all-in-one Wireless Color Photo Printer with Scanner, Copier and Fax (affiliate). It’s wireless, fast, and the colors printed out really vibrant on the HP Brochure Paper which is cardstock that’s heavier than normal copy paper. I’m super happy with it so far, a very big thank you to HP!
One of my favorite features of the HP Photosmart 7520 e-all-in-one printer is the web-connected apps, which means you can browse things to print from Disney, Highlights, Better Homes and Gardens, and more straight from the printer itself. It’s cool. So far Elise has had me print a ton of coloring pages, and I plan to play around with it for myself too.
I’ll be posting more free fall printables using my HP printer and paper in addition to these free printable Halloween party decorations. And keep reading below to enter to win your own HP Photosmart 7520 e-all-in-one printer. Now who says only kids get to trick-or-treat??

How to make DIY skeleton Halloween party decorations
Step 1: Download my free printable Halloween party decorations and cut out
Download my free printable Halloween party decorations. I designed them while half-watching X-Files re-runs to get in the mood (which is becoming an annual habit). Print them out; I used my new HP Photosmart 7520 e-all-in-one printer and HP Brochure paper – be sure to enter the giveaway below to win a printer for yourself!
Step 2: String the free printable skeleton Halloween banner
Punch two small holes in each skeleton for the banner.
String yarn through the free printable Halloween banner…
…and hang (heh, get it?).
Step 3: Make the personalized Halloween place cards
Personalize the free printable Halloween place cards by opening up my free Halloween place card template in Adobe Reader 9, a free download. Type into the fields to personalize the Halloween place cards with your own text.
Then cut out the printable Halloween placecards and fold in half. You can fold the back circle down a bit to keep it from rolling. Glue the skeleton onto the front. Add creepy Halloween food and drinks.
