11 Free 'You've Been Booed' Printables

Three Halloween candy buckets

The Spruce / Lara Antal

Have you been booed? "You've Been Booed" is a Halloween tradition of delivering treats to your neighbors in secret and asking them to pass on the fun. It can be a great bonding experience for the whole neighborhood. To start the process, you'll need a few printables: a You've Been Booed letter, a You've Been Booed sign, and a We've Been Booed sign. The letter explains how the activity works, and the signs are for people's front doors to let people know when they've been booed. You'll also need to include some Halloween treats when you boo someone. This can include candy, baked goods, or fun toys and trinkets.

Here are 11 free options for You've Been Booed printables. Some of the sets also include tags, cards, and other fun items.


For other fun Halloween activities, try pumpkin carving or throw a Halloween party. And don't forget to plan your Halloween costume.

    You've Been Boo'ed! Printables

    A brown take-out box with a spider on the tag

    Old Salt Farm

    This spider-adorned set of printables is in a fun orange, black, teal, and white color scheme. The letter and signs are all included, as well as tags and an I've Been Booed sign, which is a nice way to involve neighbors who live alone (as opposed to a 'We've Been Booed" sign). Instead of a bag for your treats, consider putting them in homemade takeout boxes. You can even print takeout box templates that allow you to assemble them yourself. Decorate with the sign and attach it with some spooky Washi tape.

    Anders Ruff

    This set of vintage-inspired printables from Anders Ruff works a little bit differently. Include the printed tag in your basket of treats, and your neighbor can hang it on their doorknob instead of taping it up somewhere. A You've Been Booed letter is also included, which you can place in the basket of treats.

    There's also another set of You've Been Booed printables that feature bats and ghosts against an orange chevron background. They're a little more cute than creepy.
