I love to decorate for the holidays. I’m not talking about putting out a pumpkin and a plastic skeleton or two. When I say I love to decorate I mean spiders dangling from the ceiling, a life size Grim Reaper watching over people on our balcony, realistic looking rats on the counter… the works!
With our condo being on the market we felt like it wasn’t a good idea to go all out and crazy decorating like me normally do. We know that some people don’t celebrate Halloween, plus we wanted people to be more focused on the “bones” of our home (flooring, walls, updates…) then plastic skeleton bones in a cauldron on the kitchen counter.
Knowing that a holiday is upon us and not being able to go all out decorating drives me bonkers. I NEED some kind of decorations around my home. Thankfully there is the HP Creative Studio. I can print out FREE Halloween goodies from my home computer and printer and have some fun decorations for family and friends to enjoy.
For now I want to be able to add a few decorations to the kid’s room and a few things in the living room. That way everyone can enjoy them. I would like to put up some decorations on our front door for the Trick-or-Treaters too.
Whether you are looking for a few decorations or fun party supplies and printables, HP Creative Studio has what you need. All you need to do is print, assemble accordingly (if required), decorate, have fun and enjoy!
HP Creative Studio has…
Halloween photo frames
Halloween party invitations
Halloween greeting cards
Photo book and scrap book pages
Additional Halloween decorations
Some items can be customized with special messages or photos once you follow the step-by-step prompts, such as the photo cubes and scrapbook pages.
I love the Halloween invitations and greeting cards. They have cute cards, funny cards and creepy cards available. You can print them out on regular printer paper so there is no extra supplies needed. If you wanted to make the cards a bit more sturdy you could print them on cardstock. Another idea would be to embellish them with glitter and rhinestones. For example, add some glitter around the moon or a Jack-0-Lantern’s features to give the appearance of it being shiny and sparkly.
HP Creative Studio has some interesting pumpkin templates that allow you to make some unique designs/faces on your pumpkins. Sadly we ddin’t pick up pumpkins this year. With all the work we’ve been doing around our home we just haven’t had a chance to pick some up. This is the first year in a long, long time that I won’t be able to make roasted pumpkin seeds.
Check out this cool skeleton wall decoration. It’s from the HP Creative Studio. All you need to do is print it out, cut out the pieces and assemble. You can use brads to make the parts move. I didn’t have time to run to the craft store for brads so I just taped the pieces together. I just made sure to put him in a fun pose before I did that.
We also have a fun Happy Halloween banner that I am going to hang across the opening between the living room and hallway. I’m just waiting for paint to dry (the handyman has been busy removing paneling and painting). I have the pieces printed and cut out. I just have to string them together and hang it up.
I printed out some hanging Halloween things too (Bat, Ghost and Spider), I just need some string to hang them from the ceiling.
The site is super easy to navigate. You simply select from the drop down menus what you are looking, and then scroll up and down (or side to side) looking for the project you want. All you need is a printer. Some items might require glue, tape or another extras. Most of which are usually found around your home.
If you are looking for Halloween related activities make sure you check out the printables. I love the coloring pages, Word Scramble and Matching Game.
Please note that the free printables, crafts and decorations found at HP Creative Studio are not just for Halloween. They have fun things available year round and for just about every occasion. They even have Disney, NBA and other
