Decorating for Halloween can be tricky. Do you go with skeletons and mummies? Or cute jack o’ lanterns and pretty witches? It’s always a dilemma for me. Over the years I’ve found that one of the easiest things to do is simply add a few Halloween details to my existing fall decor. I use things that can go up in October and come down before Thanksgiving, quickly and with no fuss. That’s what this Happy Halloween Banner is…easy, effortless, and possibly free Halloween decor.

To give the banner a vintage feel, I used an antique script background and an Old English font. The letters are formatted to print two to a page so there’s no waste.

Happy Halloween Banner Hanging Tips

  • Attach the letters to a piece of twine or yarn with tiny clothespins.
  • Punch holes in the top corners and weave a piece of twine through the holes.

The nice thing about banners is that they can be used in so many places. Here are just a few ideas:

More Halloween Fun!

When my kids were little, my favorite thing about Halloween was making their costumes. The rest of it didn’t really interest me. I was one of those moms who wanted to skip right over Trick or Treat night! Now I just like to add a few touches of Halloween, but not go overboard. I hope this post helped if you feel the same way. As always, thank you so much for stopping by and sharing a bit of your day with me. I’ll see you soon!

      Thanks for taking the time to let me know!

  7. Ann,
    I am having difficulty printing the banner . It is only printing the cream background , nothing else . Any suggestions ?

    1. Ann Drake says:

      Hi Rose…the only thing I can think of is that you may be out of black ink? If you downloaded to your computer it should print correctly. I would like to help but I’m not sure what else it could be…

  8. I’ve never decorated our house for Halloween on the inside and my outside decorations are pretty simplistic these days. When we lived in Denver, we handed out treats in one side of our garage that I turned into a haunted house: black fabric, oooky-spooky music, Jack-o-Lanterns, candles, spider webs complete with giant spiders, me in a witch costume and my husband as assorted monsters and zombies. One thing we lost in the move was his remote controlled rat, the one he used to chase children back down the driveway. We may have overdone the thing; some of the smaller children refused to come up the sidewalk. Father: “It’s all in fun. Go get your candy.” Small Boy: “No way!!!!”

    We finally gave up on this after two Halloweens in a row took place in a sleet storm. And now we don’t have the right kind of garage to pull it off.

      Oh this is awesome! I know what you mean about the weather though. It’s miserable when it’s cold or raining.

    Ann, can I purchase a tote like on your stairway with a red strip?
    I will pay before you sew, guaranteed to buy!
    Can we make this deal?

    Whatever it has taken over these years, II am glad you are blogging!

  10. I agree with you Ann, keeping it simple and eliminating the gory décor. Love your fall printables and the Halloween banner. I finally happened upon an olive bucket like yours, it’s funny how things suddenly appear when your not looking. Love your posts, you are a gem I’ve learned so much.

  11. Love simple decorating, love this banner.

  12. I like the way you think….

  16. Norma Rolader says:

    Great ideas since we do not have any small children anymore all grown up :( Thank you and have a blessed Sunday

  17. I printed one of the fall printable s and framed.
    Cut a bouquet of dried hydrangeas which is my favorite. Added a small pumpkin. This is by my kitchen entrance which is the entrance my friends use. They think I’m so smart. I told them my friend Ann keeps me inspired. Thanks Ann for making me look good.

    Ok!!!! I’m ready for spring. That’s my season.

  18. Simple decor is my favorite. Love your banner.
