Effortless Halloween Decor Idea
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 the easiest thing 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 paper waste.
Where to hang a banner?
The nice thing about banners is that they can be used in so many places. Here are just a few ideas:
- On a mantel.
- Across a window.
- Over a doorway.
- Along the front of a serving table or island/bar.
- Along the front of a dresser or console table.
How to Hang a Printable Banner
Weave Twine Through The Letters
Use twine to hang the banner on your wall, mantle, or furniture. Punch holes in the top corners, and weave a piece of twine through the holes. Secure the ends of the twine with command hooks or very small nails.
Use Tiny Clothespins For the Letters
You can do this instead of weaving the twine through the letters. Just use tiny clothespins to hang the letters on the twine.
Frequently Asked Questions
Here are some questions people often ask about free printables, including this Halloween banner.
Can I print this at home?
Yes, you can print this banner right at home. Any color inkjet or laser printer will work. Another option is to send the file to an online printing site.
Should I laminate the banner?
Laminating the banner is a very good idea. It will add extra protection from bending or tearing. Even if you don’t laminate, the banner will last for years if properly stored. The best storage solution is a small plastic bin. The banner will be protected from dust and moisture.
What kind of paper is best?
A thick cardstock is the best kind of paper for printing banners at home. It is less prone to tearing, and won’t blow around as easily if used outside. The extra weight also allows the banner pieces to hang nicely from the twine.

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, since my children are grown, I like to add a few touches of Halloween, but I never go overboard. So if you feel the same way, this post is for you.
