Printable Trick-or-Treat Signs

Trick-or-Treat Printable Signs for When You're Not Home

You can't be everywhere at once, and Halloween is a busy night for many people. If you know you won't be home or won't be able to tend to the door all night, that doesn't mean you have to let the trick-or-treaters down. You can leave a bowl of candy out for self-serve trick-or-treating. Let the candy scavengers know they can help themselves to a piece or two with a friendly printable sign.

Signs for No Candy or Trick or Treaters

You may have run out of candy and don't want to face the disappointment, or perhaps you simply don't celebrate Halloween. Regardless of your reasoning, it's okay to ask the little visitors to skip your house. These signs will politely let them know not to come knocking.

Displaying Your Trick-or-Treat Signs

Once you've got your sign picked out, you'll need to figure out how you want to display it. You can simply tape it to your door if you're low on time, or you can incorporate it into the design of your home or Halloween decorations with a little bit of creativity:

  • Display it behind a pretty fall or Halloween wreath on your door
  • Set up a Halloween creature, like a spooky skeleton or friendly scarecrow, in a chair to hold your sign for you.
  • Glue the sign to a sturdy piece of cardboard, attach a dowel or two to the bottom, and stick into the ground or into a jack-o'-lantern.
  • Put the sign in an acrylic sign holder or an 8x11 picture frame to protect your sign from the elements. Set on a table with the bowl of candy.

Halloween Signs

However you decide to display your printable sign, it is a thoughtful way to let trick-or-treaters know what to expect (and what to do) when they visit your home this Halloween.
