My niece requested a Halloween Party for her 7th birthday. After posting my daughters Tea Party invites, my sister-in-law contacted me and challenged me to come up with an invite that had a coffin and a skeleton. I originally thought about doing a 3D coffin using my Silhouette Craft Cutting Machine, but my sister-in-law nixed that idea due to the need to hand deliver those. Instead I came up with these festive Halloween Bash Invites:
Aren’t these fun? They were super simple to make and Mckenna LOVED her invitations, as did her little friends. And because I love my readers so very much, I’ve made a free template of the invite for you to download. You can fill in the information on the second page by typing in the information in the pdf or print the invite and fill in your info with a Sharpie!
There are two versions to choose from. If throwing a Halloween themed Birthday, choose the first, if you’re hosting a Halloween Bash, choose the second!

The 8.5″ x 11″ pdf downloads include the main coffin template, the front piece that says either “It would be a Grave Mistake to miss this Halloween Birthday Bash” or “It would be a Grave Mistake to miss this Halloween Bash” and the inside with the skeleton holding a parchment with who, where, when and RSVP to fill out.
Use the coffin template to create the main portion of the card using colored cardstock. Once that is complete, cut out both the front and inside of the invitation and glue them to the coffin. Simple and festive!

Happy Birthday to your niece. Beautiful invitation.
That is such an awesome invite! Happy birthday to your niece!
Thanks for the fantastic pdf!
Thank you! This is perfect for my sons 10th birthday party!
I love this invite but I can only print the first page for some reason. Could you please send me another link to use? I have no clue why pages 2 and 3 wont print. Thank you!!!
Make sure you are saving the file to your desktop. Do not try to print directly from the web browser version because it can do silly things. Once the file is on your hard drive, open it in Adobe Reader and you should be good to print. If you already did that, then the only other thing I can think is to try a different computer? I just tried downloading and printing both files and they worked for me – and I actually received an email from another reader who just printed these, so I know they’re working. Fingers crossed you are able to make it work!
Love this invitation! Thanks for sharing! I just had one question. What is the font you used for the “grave mistake”?
I would love to address my envelopes using that same font!
I made this invite several years ago and it must have been on my old computer because I don’t seem to have the font anymore. I would recommend trying a free (for personal use) font website, like dafont.com. They have lots of options – Chiller might look cool!
Do you have an idea of where I can find an envelopes that will fit and not be to big for me to mail out?
If you trim just inside the line of the coffin template (3rd page of the pdf) then the invites SHOULD fit in a regular #10 envelope. We used orange ones that we found at Staples.
These are great! Can you please post the Halloween party invite link? Both links seem to be the birthday one. Thank you kindly!!
Nope, they are different. One says Halloween Birthday Bash, the other just says Halloween Bash. The insides are identical, the front just has one word different.
Oh, I see! The Halloween Bash file name says birthday! It’s still the right invite though. Sorry about that! I’ll fix the file name soon, but for now, it is the right invite. 🙂
