More Halloween ideas and helpful tips for your Halloween projects:

1) Avery 5160 Halloween templates for spooky mailing

Avery address labels are what we’re known for, and Avery 5160 (and 8160 which is the version for inkjet printers) are the undisputed rulers of them all. These versatile 1″ x 2-5/8″ white paper labels are beloved by users for everything from labeling Ball and Mason jars to product branding to making party decorations and crafts.

And of course, addressing envelopes. There’s so many awesome Avery 5160 templates for Halloween address labels that picking one hardly seemed fair. If you have a favorite, share with us on Instagram or Facebook, we’d love to know!

Pro Tip: Laser and inkjet printers are very different so it's important to always match your labels to the type of printer you'll be using.

2) Bold and batty Avery template for personalized name badges

While all the Avery templates for Halloween name tags are pretty cool, our favorite one for Halloween is a bold bat design. Designed for printing on blank white name badges, it’s great for parties as well as school, or community events where you want staff/volunteers to stand out.

3) “Hello My Name Is” Halloween t-shirt idea

A black and white raglan tee with a "Hello My Name Is" fabric transfer design that's personalized with "Freddy K." for Halloween.

Print this design yourself on our light fabric transfers (3271) using an inkjet printer. Then follow the directions for ironing on your favorite tee.

Edit the text on the template to be any character you want!

The Avery “Hello My Name Is” name tag is not just classic, it’s downright iconic. It’s been featured in tons of TV and movies, and now you can make your own custom “Hello My Name Is” t-shirt. First, open the template and click “Place Text Here.” This will open tools for editing text and the font. The possibilities are endless!

4) Cute little creepers for babies

Two Halloween templates on baby onesies. One is cute text that reads "Little Boo!" and the other is a jack o' lantern face.

Print these designs yourself on our our stretchable fabric transfers (3302) using an inkjet printer.

Creepers, diaper shirts or snap suits— whatever you call them, decorating baby clothes is so much fun. In fact, we loved it so much that we created baby onesie fabric transfer designs for every month of the year! Certainly, stretchable fabric transfers like the ones we used here are great for most baby onesies. However, you can also make pretty cool glitter or glow in the dark designs, like this adorable glow-in-the-dark jack o’ lantern face!

Pro Tip: Fabric transfers work differently on light, dark and stretchy fabrics. Avery templates for fabric transfers are designed to work best with each type of fabric. It’s important that you match the right transfer to the material you’re working with.

5) “Momster” DIY Halloween t-shirt

A DIY "Momster" tee shirt idea made with Avery fabric transfer 3302. It features the word "Momster" in classic creepy font accented with black bats.

Print this design yourself on our our stretchable fabric transfers (3302) using an inkjet printer.

Every mom needs a “Momster” tee. Whether you’re into classic pumpkin orange or as obsessed with the pastel Halloween trend as we are, that’s the beauty of creating your own. Our “Momster” Halloween template is designed to work perfectly with stretch fabric transfer products.

6) DIY Halloween greeting card template

Making your own cards is a fun way to celebrate any festive occasion. Especially if you have long-distance friends or relatives. Another great idea is to mail cards back home from your favorite Halloween haunts like theme parks or other travel destinations. For example, Disneyland, Knott’s Berry Farm, and Universal Studios are all well-known for Halloween celebrations and have places you can drop off stamped cards to be mailed.

Pro Tip: There are blank Avery templates for every printable product we offer. To find them you go to the template finder and enter your product number. It’s that easy.

7) Minty-fresh candy labels for Halloween

You can’t go wrong with a classic, especially these tiny candies for fresh breath. With a clever label you can instantly turn them into spooky treats for Halloween. In fact, they make great party favors. Try setting out a bowl of them at your Halloween party or adding them to Halloween party goody bags.

Pro Tip: Looking for a specific label size to fit different Halloween candies? You can shop labels by the sheet in a huge variety of shapes, sizes, and materials. You can even order custom sizes at no extra charge.

8) S’more boos please, Halloween tag template

S'more boos Halloween template printed on Avery 22802 tags.

Print this design yourself on classic rectangle tags (22802). Or, order custom-printed hang tags.

Everybody loves a treat bag, and who could resist cute ghost s’mores? Find the perfect printable Halloween tag template to add to treats, décor or “You’ve Been Booed” gifts. In fact, you can make your own personalized gift tags for any occasion. They’re fantastic for birthday goody bags and presents, Christmas gifts, wedding favors and so much more.

9) S’more fun with friends treat topper

S’mores are just too delicious, we had to include a second way to add them to your Halloween festivities. Small tent cards actually make really great DIY bag toppers for party treats and they’re so easy to do. To make these, we printed our cute design on small tent cards, put hot glue on the inside, and sandwiched the goody bag in between. Of course, you can always staple the cards to the bags, but we prefer hot glue for kid-friendly treats.

10) Halloween tic tac toe candy cards

Tic tac toe candy cards are a great Halloween activity for kids. Whether it’s at a kid-friendly Halloween party, winding down after trick or treating, or in the classroom. Simply print the cards and provide small colorful candies to use as markers. Kids will love playing tic tac toe and snacking as they go!

11) Pumpkins and stripes party invitations

Postcards are perfect for short and sweet party invitations, or printing on both sides to include more information. The Avery template for a pumpkin-carving party is our favorite because it’s easy to customize for any party with your own text. The classic black and white theme with pumpkins is super versatile.

PRO TIP: If you’re printing a large amount of invitations or your design has a lot of saturated colors, save money on ink and try custom-printed invitations. Professional printing machines can handle photographs, saturated colors and large quantities much better than your desktop printer.

12) Personalize comfy tees with blank Avery templates for stretch fabric

Classic white tee reads "404 Error: Costume Not Found" in plain font. Made with Avery iron transfer 3302.

Print this design yourself on our our stretchable fabric transfers (3302) using an inkjet printer.

Create a funny (and comfortable) “404 Error: Costume Not Found” tee with a stretchable fabric transfer and our free predesigned Halloween template. Or, try creating your own personalized Halloween t-shirt using blank Avery template for stretchable fabric transfers. You can design your own shirts using Avery Design and Print Online tools to add or edit images, text, shapes, and more.

13) Best Halloween templates for labeling goodies

DIY candy corn treats decorated with black and white Halloween labels featuring a spider, a cat and bats.

Choose several simple predesigned templates from the Halloween category to create eye-catching treats!

Print yourself on 2″ round labels, or order custom-printed round labels.

If you had to get just one size of label and make it work in a bunch of different ways, our glossy white 2″ round labels are incredibly versatile. In fact, there are three ways to personalize round labels using Avery Design and Print Online. First, choose from dozens of free Halloween templates for 2″ round labels that you can customize.
