free Halloween black butterflies printable

 I get so excited this time of year. 

The changing of the seasons, and the anticipation of all the upcoming holidays.

Halloween is one of my favorite holidays to decorate for. 

Each year I find new inspiration and I hope you find some new ideas here as well!

I created a fun printable image for you today and I hope you think it is as fun, or spooky, as I do.

Read until the end of this post so you can grab my free Halloween black butterflies printable!


Rather than gory Halloween, I prefer whimsical, fun, a bit creepy, but chic at the same time.

These black butterflies are just that.

Add them in abundance to any space. They look especially good on a light background, standing out with their black color.


Not only do they look good on walls, but scattered throughout whatever room you are decorating.

My centerpiece for this table is a big bowl, a battery operated candle in the center, and plastic skulls surrounding it. 




Once you print them out, cut around each one.

When you are ready to hang them, fold them in half and add a piece of double sided tape to the back, or other paint/wall friendly adhesive.

Hang them every which way so they appear to be flying.

I also liked to splay the wings out randomly so each one wasn't the same.

And here are some decorating ideas/details for a small get together.


Serve up bloody cocktails in spooky glasses.



I found this fun skeleton serving tray at HomeGoods and it was perfect for appetizers. 




I have two different options for you to print out your butterflies.

The first one requires black card stock. 
Print out the following image onto a full sheet of black card stock, and cut out the butterflies.


The second option requires more black printer ink, but you can print these out onto white card stock.


You can also print them out at different sizes, so you have a variety of sizes of butterflies. 

I'd love it if you'd pin any of these images!

These are so cute - still Halloween-y but cute and not too spooky!
