If you want free party invitations to print at home, you might like this printable Halloween party invitation. All you have to do is download and print them and then roll them up to seal them. They’re super-easy. The hardest part is deciding who to invite to your spook-tacular Halloween bash!
DIY Halloween invitations are way better than a boring text message or phone call. There’s nothing wrong with getting into the seasonal spooky spirit ahead of the actual day. A readymade printable Halloween party invitation only has to be printed out and written on!
What You Need to Make Free Party Invitations
You could make really basic party invitations with simply some pens and paper, but it’s so much easier to make DIY Halloween invitations with a printer.
As well as your printer, you’ll need ink, paper, labels or sticky paper, film labels, scissors, a marker, and an acrylic marker. A cutting map, ruler, bone folder, knife, and stamps are optional.
How to Make Them
Once you’re ready to make your printable Halloween party invitations, you can go ahead and download and print them. For the best results, have the quality set to ‘best’ and make sure your printer will make them the actual size rather than scaled down. These might or might not be your default settings, so just check if you aren’t sure. Then print them out.
The address labels you can also print at home. Use printer labels or similar. The next step is scoring between the fold lines of the illustrations with a knife or bone folder then cut them.
Use a chalk or acrylic paint marker to write in the blanks, then fold the free party invitations in half. Stick them with washi tape. I love this Halloween themed washi tape!
Once you’ve folded each printable Halloween party invitation in on both sides and up from the bottom, it will look like an envelope. Then you can stick your printed labels on there, add stamps (if need be) and send them out!
5 Tips for the Best DIY Halloween Invitations
- Make sure you have all the materials to hand before you begin. You might need to order washi tape, sticker paper or some of the other items. And check you’re not running low on printer ink.
- Make sure your printer is set to print actual size and on best quality.
- You can score the invitations with a detail knife or X-Acto knife. If you don’t have one of those, you can use scissors or any other sharp knife.
- Make sure you send these out in plenty of time, so people have time to RSVP!
- Since most of the print at home invitation is in black and white, you can print in black and white if you don’t have colour ink. It won’t matter much if the spider at the top is blue or gray. However, bear in mind some printers (mine included!) refuse to print in black and white if the colour inks have run out. And vice versa!
Time to Plan Your Halloween Party
These print at home free party invitations are only step one of your Halloween party planning. You’re also going to need to plan the event itself. You will have a rough idea of who will and won’t come before you even download and print the invitations.
If you’re having more than a handful of people over, it’s going to be easiest to have a buffet. There are lots of Halloween snacks you can make ahead, such as mummy stromboli, Snickers mummy treats and Halloween pizza.
As for the drinks, adults beverages to consider include black magic rum cocktails and coconut rum shots that glow in the dark!
Halloween is a holiday you can have a lot of fun with, and it appeals to all ages. If you’re a fan of this holiday, you will probably have last year’s Halloween decorations in the attic or garage.
If not, there are plenty of Halloween decorations online you can order. And of course there are also items in the stores around Halloween. Well, OK, more like from August onwards!
