Do you decorate your home for Halloween? Sure, a lot of us carve a jack-o’-lantern or two, but do you decorate beyond that? When it comes to décor, Halloween may not have quite the same cachet as Christmas or even Thanksgiving, but that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t get in the spirit of the season.
(Get it? “Spirit” and Halloween?)
Plus, decorating may actually be good for you! Studies have shown that there are mental benefits to decorating. While most of those studies apply to Christmas decorations specifically, there’s no reason those benefits can’t also be achieved by decorating for Halloween. 🙂
Here are some ways you may benefit when you decorate for Halloween, even with freebies, like these happy Halloween printable signs!
- It may improve your mood. Decorating can evoke comforting memories such as those sugar filled Halloweens of your childhood! And thinking about positive images can help prevent or relieve stress and anxiety.
- It may help you feel more in control. Is your life stressful and overwhelming right now? If you’re struggling to balance it all, decorating may actually help you regain a sense of control.
- It may build a sense of anticipation and give you something to look forward to. Even as an adult, Halloween can be pretty fun; try looking forward to all of the amazing activities you’ll get to experience with your kids like visiting a pumpkin patch, choosing an adorable costume, and of course trick-or-treating!

To get you started with Halloween décor, I’m sharing three free printable Halloween signs plus a coloring page version of each in case you want to get a little crafty! Remember, coloring also has mental (and cognitive) benefits such as promoting relaxation. So if you opt for a colorable Halloween signs printable, you may get a double dose of wellness! 🙂
Halloween Signs Printable Download: Felines, Spirits, and Bats—Oh, My
Ring in the witching hour with free printable Halloween signs, like this one, that feature some of the staples of the holiday. This option has a black cat, ghost, skulls, and bats. Plus, the ghost is wearing a witch’s hat so it’s either the ghost of a witch or a ghost dressed up to go trick-or-treating … either way, it’s like a twofer, right? 😉
To use this happy Halloween printable sign simply download, print, cut away any extra paper, and hang up in your home. Pretty easy, right?
Tip: Consider placing some of these free printable Halloween signs in your windows, facing outward, so that your neighbors can see them. A study in The Journal of Environmental Psychology found that “people who decorate the exteriors of their houses with garlands, strings of lights, and all other manner of bright, cheerful, and merry holiday décor are seen as friendlier and having “greater sociability” than neighbors who don’t decorate.” Now obviously, that study pertained to Christmas decorations, but maybe the same is true for Halloween decorations?
Bonus: Decorating your home for Halloween may score you some points with the neighbors, and it might inspire your neighbors to get in on the fun themselves. Another way to encourage your community to seize the Halloween spirit is to download this “You’ve Been Booed” printable and start a neighborhood “booing” tradition.
