These free Vintage Halloween Printables are unique in that they're double printables. There is actually one witch's hat design, as well as a page of black lace...both are designed to be used together for a spooky little vintage-looking vignette. By layering these two printables together, you're bringing in a bit of extra texture and interest. Download both of these vintage Halloween printables below.
Vintage Halloween Printables
The best part about today's vintage Halloween printables? They were totally by accident. Today is also our monthly Thrifty Style Team day. I had originally planned to create fall placemats from my old buffalo-checked table runners with some orange grosgrain ribbon embellishment for my project. They were a complete craft fail of epic proportions (my seam ripper and I are no longer on speaking terms). Since I'm doing all of these printables this month, I was also going to do some coordinating printable placemats, as well. But, when I scrapped the buffalo check placemats, I went a new direction all together. And these sweet little vintage, layered prints were well worth the sewing disaster. I'm really happy with how they came together.


Thrifty Projects
And yes, as I mentioned above, we have everyone's favorite day of the month happening today! The Thrifty Style Team is made up of some of my absolute favorite creative bloggers. Once a month, we get together and share each other's thrifty projects on our blogs. It's always a guaranteed good time with lots of inspiration all around. Some of my favorite Thrifty Style Team posts from this year have included the one with my French Lavender Linen Spray Recipe and my Vintage Linens Post (which featured my aunt's embroidered linens from over 60 years ago).

While I rarely do printables for Thrifty Style Team posts, I think today's prints are definitely a thrifty way to decorate for the Halloween season.

Witch Hat Printable
As I mentioned earlier in the post, these printables look fabulous when layered together...or not. Above is the witch's hat print on its own (framed without the optional black lace patterned print). It looks great on its own, so that's definitely another option if you're wanting a simpler look to your piece.


Vintage Halloween Greeting Cards
I also have a companion print available for these prints. The above free printable Halloween Card is available over on my greeting card site: Print Pretty Cards. There are two versions available for you to download and send to your pretty.

Layering Your Vintage Halloween Printables

  • To get the layered look to these printables (you can see how that looks in the first photo of this post, as well as several photos included below), you'll need to print a copy of the black lace and a copy of the witch hat (all download links are listed out below).
  • There are several ways to do your sizing when layering prints. I used the 8x10" lace pattern, along with one of the 5x7" witch hat prints (pictured above). I purposefully don't have a 4x6" lace pattern, since it wouldn't work with layering. But you can also print a 5x7" lace print and top it with a 4x6" witch hat print. 
  • If you want lots of lace in your finished piece, it would be fun to do the 8x10" lace print with the 4x6" witch hat print on top. This is a fun set of printables to get creative with...I can't wait to hear what you decide to do.
  • Be sure to print both of your pieces on white cardstock so they look nice. Regular copier or printer paper is too thin for printables and will show through the colors behind it.

Watercolor Halloween Printables
  • After trimming the white borders off of both of the printables (as pictured above), I simply glued mine together, with the witch hat on top.
  • You can also use double stick or rolled tape for this. It would also look interesting to use mounting squares in between your prints, if you're not using a traditional frame with glass. That would really add some unique dimension to the finished piece.
