Whether you’re planning a big party or a virtual one, a creative flyer design can really sell it. Here’s a creative approach that actually just uses icons and letters to create a show-stopper.
With a blocky font, you can type individual letters and arrange the text boxes however you like. The messy organization of letters in this template creates a “tumbling” effect.
Then swap in new icons and illustrations that give this template its own look. Venngage actually has 40,000+ icons and illustrations that you can use while editing your work. There are a ton of different styles to suit any look you go for.
5. Cute Halloween Party Flyer Template

6. Halloween Sale Flyer Template
Does your business have a spooky season sale planned? An eye-catching flyer is a great way to get the word out there.
A Halloween flyer is a good opportunity to use creepy or wacky fonts, so don’t be afraid to crack one out. This Halloween flyer template uses Averia Libra and Unkempt to give it a cartoon-y feel. If you’re using a dark background color, be sure to use a bright, light-colored font so that your information will pop out from your flyer.
You can easily incorporate product shots, then resize and crop or frame them with the image editor. Don’t worry about losing your progress either. You can close or refresh your browser any time – your work will save automatically.
7. Trick Or Treat Halloween Flyer Template
If you prefer a more minimalist style, then a solid colored background with a few sparse embellishments can make for a classier flyer design.
Keep your text brief and include only the most important information. Pick one lighter color and one darker color to create contrast.
Also, try playing around with different sized icons. For example, this free Halloween flyer template uses different sized bat icons to create the effect of a group of bats flying:
8. Pumpkin Halloween Party Poster Template
Do you want to give a sneak preview of what your guests can expect at your Halloween bash? You can use a photo as a background image for your flyer to do just that.
Choose a photo that hints at what your activities might be. You could use stock photos (just make sure it’s not one of the really cheesy, cringe-y ones) or photos from the previous year. If you have the resources, it’s always a good idea to use original photos!
Here’s an easy design hack: overlay your background image a semi-opaque square. This will allow your text to stand out from the background without obscuring the background image completely.

Not all Halloween content has to be scary. Halloween is also a fall holiday! Create a social media flyer that spreads a bit of warmth and coziness, to counteract all the creepiness of other Halloween posts.
Combining a fall-themed photo with a simple message written in a decorative font will make for a highly shareable social media flyer. Don’t forget to include your company branding!
10. Halloween Pets Safety Flyer Template
Sharing valuable safety tips is always considerate. Making it look great is a sure way to make people actually read it!
So many folks have pets and make their pets part of their Halloween festivities. It’s important, especially for new pet owners to feel informed.
You can use a flyer like this provide info, but also advertise your business, get people excited for an upcoming event, or offer some cool content for your audience!
Just because it’s Halloween, doesn’t mean you have to stick to the traditional black-and-orange color scheme, either. Don’t be afraid to think outside the box and mix some unusual colors with bright Halloween icons.
11. Halloween Kids Safety Tips Flyer Template
Halloween may be mostly fun and games, but there are certain precautions you should take to ensure everyone is safe. A safety tips flyer is a good way to spread important information to families.
Combine concise tips with illustrative icons to make the information easy to understand. Pick icons that are easily recognizable–for example, a children’s crossing symbol or a fire symbol.
Since it’s Halloween, there’s no reason why you shouldn’t throw in some festive icons while you’re at it too. Just make sure that they don’t distract from the important information! Adjusting the opacity of your decorative icons to make them blend more into the background is an easy way to establish a visual hierarchy.
