Creepy, spooky, fun: the best Halloween fonts for your decorations

halloween fonts

Cross our hearts, we swear it’s not just about the candy. We love Halloween for so many other reasons besides chocolate, truly we do. The costumes, the make up, the stories, the trick or treating, the marshmallows and s’mores… Ok, we just slid back into candyland, sorry. But one thing no one can deny is that decorating for Halloween is one of the best family and friends activities. So, before you pick up that spray can and fake spider webs, make sure you have the best fonts for your Halloween decorations. 

There are endless possibilities when it comes to Halloween decorations. You can do dark and twisted, very creepy, psychedelic, spooky, fun or even dainty. If you spend enough time and energy on the process, it’s bound to look great. 

We highly encourage you to spend months and months planning your show stopping Halloween bash. Whenever you feel just a bit too old for it, just Google Heidi Klum’s Halloween party tradition and you’ll get an instant reminder that Halloween is for everyone and every age. If a supermodel spends six hours dressing up as Fiona, you can do better than wearing a baggy t-shirt and jeans and, ok? Good. So, Halloween is tomorrow night, on October 31st. Not too much time to plan even a family dinner, let alone a fun, engaging party. 

But, if you don’t have the time and honestly the creativity and energy resources for it, let WhatFontIs come to the rescue. Scroll through our list of the best fonts for Halloween and use it as a starting point. We’ve compiled so many different styles that you will definitely find the one just right for your Halloween party and decorations. 

Let’s start with a classic Halloween font. Charming Font is something you could easily see on a horror movie poster. Or on an old, rusty, gigantic gate locked outside a haunted mansion. Or on a sign warning you to stay out of the woods! You know how it goes, when the characters split up in the movie, someone will die in the three minutes. Except for Scooby Doo, when the gang splits up, they catch the bad guy in the monster suit. Speaking of suits, what are you going as this Halloween?

Or you could kill them more softly, with a beautiful cursive with just enough creepy vibes that you will look over your shoulder for the rest of the day. Endless Sorrow is, because of these features, a great Halloween font. Also, the name, come on, it just screams Halloween!

For a more modern day crime scene, choose the Super Danger font as your Halloween go-to typeface. The fading shapes build up the suspense, just like in a classic thriller. 

But, if there’s no doubt about who is the killer and the scene you are after is more horror movie as opposed to thriller, than the Another Danger Slanted is the best Halloween font option for you. This font is Freddy Krueger approved, trust us. 

Halloween decorations always mean a lot of black. If you are going for a dark background, one Halloween font that looks good on contrast with black is Blood Crow. It would work wonders with a ghost themed website, for example. Or vampires, because obviously they need the dark background to save them from melting in the light. 

Another classic and a children favourite is Creepsville. Honestly, we’ve seen this one far more often than other, but that’s exactly why it’s a classic, right? The Monsters, Inc. vibe looks great for any Halloween font. 

Let’s stay in the kids friendly area just bit longer. Remember that episode when Claire from Modern Family goes just a bit too far with the fake blood and creepy decorations on Halloween, basically freaking out every kid on the block? Yeah, you don’t want to be that person. The parents were sitting outside here house, urging children to avoid it. The Halloween Voysla font will keep you grounded, reminding you it is, essentially, a children’s holiday.

Same with the Halloween Spider font as your Halloween font of choice. It has everything it needs for a cool, fun event, without risking any angry looks from your local mom patrols. Spiders are a staple Halloween decoration, so you could easily integrate them in your party invitations, for example. Instead of adding them on top of a plain text, why not use a Halloween font that was specifically designed with spiders?

And with the Halloween Kiddy Font, need we say more? The name pretty much sums it up. A sweet, childish font, with cute Halloween shapes cut into block lettering. 

But for more sophisticated, adult or young adult Halloween themed events, The Crow font is amazing. It reminds us of the noir, horrifying theme from ‘A Series Of Unfortunate Events’. We’re really checking our office for Count Olaf right now.
