If you like borders you might want to visit my Borders for All Occasions which includes more Holiday Borders to use to make invitations, flyers, posters and borders!
Bats, Bats and More Bats
Have fun making an invitation out of this Orange and Black Invitation with Bats, Bats and More Bats.
To use this and all of the invitations click on the small image and a larger image will appear. Right click and choose "Save Image As" and save to your computer in a folder where you will be able to find it.
To print the wording of your invitation it's easiest to use a layout program like Corel Draw, Pagemaker, Publisher, or the free program Scribus. You can use Microsoft Word by inserting a picture from file and then choosing the text over picture option to write your invitation.
Scaredy Cat cat can be changed to another color or you can leave Scaredy Cat Black and use Colored Paper like Orange, Yellow, Red, or Lime Green any color that is a nice contrast to black.
Scaredy Cat along with all of the rest of the invitations on this page are 8" x 10.5 but you can resize them to whatever size you need to fit your printer or your paper.
You could resize these to fit on the right side of a piece of landcape paper and use them for the front of Halloween Card! Just fold the paper in half then print or write your sentiment inside the card.
Halloween Decorating Ideas
Black Cat and Jack O'lantern
You can't see it that well but when you blow this image up you will see that jack o'lantern in this picture is actually orange and it is only the cat that is black so this is actually a color invitation.
If your school, class, or club is having a Halloween Party you can always blow these images up to fit a 11 x 17 poster. Or, a better way to do it is to lay it out in letter size first, 8 1/2 x11 then take it to your local copy shop and have it blown up on 11 x 17 paper.
It would be cheaper to choose one of the B & W images and have the copies blown up and copied in black and white on colored paper.
Ghost Trick or Treater
Use this cute little ghost trick or treater as either an invitation or as a sign put up at your front door greeting your trick or trickers. You could also use this for a sign at your church's Halloween carnival giving directions to the little goblins.
To Make a Sign, Invitation, Poster
Set your margins to at least one and 1/4 inch on all sides. (Borders are one inch at full size.
Type your message in a fun typestyle like Chiller, Creepy, Cut n Paste and Eraser Dust. (You can Google free fonts and find either these are others with similar names.)
Type in your information making sure to give the location, time and date and center it.
This Scary Ghost can be changed to any color and would probably look better in a bright color like neon orange, lime green or bright pink to make it stand out.
If you'd rather have your invitation look more like store bought, instead of keeping the border letter size, resize it to fit a half fold envelope, 4.25 x 5.5.
Use 67 lb velum to get a cardstock that is stiffer than paper and thin enough to go through an ink jet printer. Can't find a half fold envelope? Make it yourself out of wrapping paper, 11 x 17 paper. (I'll add a link to an article I wrote to show you how or you can always Google it to find other other sources.
Trick or Trick
This invitation or border is colorful enough on its own so print it on white. You could try to match the print to the green or orange to make it really stand out.
To add to the festivities you could add this border (in a smaller size) to labels that you either put on bags of halloween favors or use to identify each other if everyone is in costume and you can't figure out who everyone is. You might be able to incorporate the border into signs for directions to games or scavenger hunt clues.

Do you have a lot of ideas you'd like to see in print?
Stay at it long enough, put enough work into, light many who do make a living on Squiddo and you might even earn money for yourself or your favorite charity!
Yes, I had to include the Skull as a Halloween Decorating idea and find all of the Skull decorating ideas Amazon had available.
I know it's been done --particularly on teenager's T'shirts and such but it's still a good emblem for Halloween.
Theoretically you could turn the skull any color that you like but don't know that you'd want to since skulls really only come in black and white as far as I know.
If you have an iconic Halloween symbol you'd like turned into a Halloween invitation, let me know in the comments below because I will be adding to this collection as I go along.
