At this point, I think we are all pretty comfortable with the idea that Halloween isn’t just for kids. Adults should totally be getting in on the fun too! And we will!
Though you may want to skip the traditional orange pumpkins and green goblins that are typically reserved for the kiddos. If you’re thinking about throwing a grown up Halloween party (Any excuse to wear a costume, I’m in!), my recommendation would be to play up deep blacks and geometrics in an interesting color scheme. Maybe even throw in a golden eye or two for good measure.
And with that in mind, I created a set of modern gift tags for just the occasion, and I partnered with Avery to bring you the free printable. So, all you have to do is download the printable PDF, grab a pack of Avery printable tags, and print! The tags are perforated, so you won’t even need scissors. Doesn’t get much easier that that, does it?
Need some DIY ideas for how to use these gift tags? Here are a couple of suggestions…
1. Fill a vintage box, like mine, or a plain gift box, with grown up candies…like wasabi peanuts. Then wrap the box in a thin layer of cheesecloth that has been dyed black. Tie on your printable gift tag and you are good to go.
2. OR skip the box idea and make a small bouquet of flowers in a dramatic color (deep plum, vibrant orange, etc) for the occasion. Add some string and a gift tag and you have a unique Halloween gift idea / party favor.
P.S. After you’ve printed a set or two of these gift tags, if you’re feeling inspired, you can design your own set of tags too, using Avery’s Design and Print software.

Thanks Kel. For Halloween, I figured the black background was appropriate. It’s fun to play around with something totally different, every now and then.Brittni
Love the black background in these photos, B and the non-traditional palette you used on the tags. I’m all about mixing up colors for Halloween, and these rock!Kelly @ Studio DIY
