Free Halloween Printables

Decorate With Trendy Word Art

by: Sarah Gunn

As I mentioned in my last post, I love decorating for the holidays. Halloween is a tricky one for me though. I tried decorating with traditional Halloween colours last year and, although it was pretty, it didn't really work with my style. This year I switched it up and came up with some great ways to make Halloween pretty. But I am not done yet!

Word art is such a fun trend right now, so I thought I would make a Halloween piece. After a lot of hilarious attempts {long story}, I finally got it right but I could not decide between all words:

or one with a picture:

so I made both!

And because I want you all to spookify your home for Halloween, I made them into free printables!

Turns out life isn't a fairytale and she's not exactly living in a castle. In fact, her house is in constant need of design intervention. Little things like children, exhaustion and budgets get in the way.
