Double double toil and trouble, fire burn & cauldron bubble.. Something wicked this way comes!Shakespeare, from Macbeth
Something wicked is about to land in your inbox.
It’s October, and it’s officially the warm-up to the Holiday Season. A time for falling leaves, moody overcast days, squash-bedecked stoops, and trees haunted by ghostly grocery store bags (best upcycling craft ever).
It’s the big breath before the Christmas frenzy begins. The final time we button our pants with ease before the onslaught of Halloween candy, Thanksgiving dinner, and an IV containing 1000cc eggnog daily resolves us into January gym memberships.
Halloween is officially this Thursday, and I’m in a festive spirit! My Halloween bucket list is nearly checked off:
- I’ve watched Hocus Pocus— twice, but avoided any actual horror films. Because I’m a real life scaredy-cat. Fun fact: I also have a cat-niece named Binx.
- I’ve successfully avoided carving a pumpkin. Because I’m a single childless 29-year old, and no one can make me!
- I’ve supported my sister, Brooke’s Beauty Bazaar, in the creation of her can-can girl costume. If only by cleaning up her messes. Peep her can-can girl costume in the video near the bottom of this post, because she did a spectacular job!
- I refrained from devouring the mixed bag of M&Ms, Snickers, and Twix. I can proudly say I didn’t even have one piece, and it’s fully sealed and intact for Thursday’s trick-or-treaters.
- And.. I’ve created some Halloween Clip Art just for you!
Today I’m sharing this Frightful Free Halloween Clip Art with you, plus three fun ways you can use it right now!

HIGH QUALITY PNG HALLOWEEN CLIP ART FILES
When you unzip your Halloween Clip Art file folder, you’ll find 14 individual high quality .PNG files, plus a Personal Use License.
.PNG files have a transparent background, so you can “stick” these to anything.
You’re free to use this clip art for personal use, but you are not allowed to redistribute these files, use the files commercially, nor resell the files.
There are so many fun things you can do with this halloween clip art, but I’ve come up with three ideas for how you can use it now.
THREE FUN IDEAS FOR HALLOWEEN CLIP ART
1. Use Halloween Clip Art in your own digital designs.
You can add these files into your own graphic designs! If you’re a blogger or business owner, you could add them to a Halloween-themed email you’re planning to send out.
Check out this simple graphic I created using the Halloween Clip Art files in Photoshop.
If you don’t have Photoshop, don’t worry! You can upload these files directly into Canva, a free design tool that allows you to create flyers, business cards, email headers, and more.
2. Print out Halloween Clip Art with ready-made Avery Labels.
In recent years you’ve likely noticed a teal pumpkin or two while you’re out trick-or-treating. The teal pumpkin is meant to let trick-or-treaters with severe food allergies know that you have a non-food treat for them.
If you want to offer something non-food this year, stickers are a perfect alternative to candy for trick-or-treaters! Or maybe you need a fun Halloween party favor for your kids, students, family, or friends.
To make this halloween clip art into stickers, you’ll need a printer (with color ink, obviously!) and some pre-made labels, such as Avery Labels.
Instead of getting little address labels, I prefer to keep the full-page labels on-hand. That way I can print all of the stickers at once and cut them out individually. But if you have the address labels, you can print each file on the label individually, too.
For the purposes of this craft, I’m using the full-page label.
Simply arrange the stickers on a blank page in your preferred Word Processor. If you don’t have Microsoft Word or Apple Pages, you can use Google Docs to do this. Then hit print, cut out the stickers, and they’re all ready for your trick-or-treaters. And don’t forget to put out your teal pumpkin!
Of course if you just want a fun treat for yourself, you could always make these stickers for your bullet journal!
3.Use Halloween Clip Art in your Instagram Stories.
Another great use is jazzing up your social media with these Halloween stickers. You’ll have cool instagram stickers that your friends don’t- although I won’t hate you for sharing your insider knowledge with them!
This is simple to do! Just Just head to Instagram and record a story. Then click the sticker icon and in the search bar, type “maker lex”. You’ll be able to access these stickers plus some fun animated versions!
Watch this quick video to see them in action. (& thanks to my sister for being an amazing can-can dancer model!)
