These 15 Halloween wall art printables will help you add some spooky flair without breaking the bank.

    How To Use These Halloween Art Printables

    Download the free wall art templates. They come in two design themes with either a colorful background or white background. Use one design for a specific wall aesthetic theme, hang them hang as singular photos, or mix and match them in your own design.

    Another thing you’ll love about these 6in x 8in wall art pictures is the various convenient ways you can hang them on your wall. You can frame, tape, or hole punch and add a ribbon – and voila! I personally prefer framing and hanging them but frames for decorative imagery can get expensive so I use paper frames. For these printables, I would suggest using either Juvale’s black or white paper frames. You can take this craft to the next level by painting or using Halloween-themed washi tape to decorate the frame borders.

    The key is to be creative and have fun with them!
