I’ve made a ridiculous amount of printable bookmarks over the years, and in my experience the most success in DIY coloring bookmarks is the type of paper you use. Using a bright white cardstock in the heaviest weight your printer can handle will make your bookmark sturdy.

How to Make Halloween Bookmarks

You can print and assemble the bat bookmarks in advance then hand out as non-candy Halloween treats.

Or make them as a craft for:

  • school parties,
  • scout meetings,
  • senior centers,
  • libraries, or
  • wherever you need a fun fall activity.

Use the instructions below to make your Halloween coloring bookmark. You can print or save the instructions to your favorites using the buttons in the instruction card so they’re always easy to find.

  2. Use paper trimmer or scissors to cut out bookmarks along outer lines. I use a 12" guillotine trimmer for nice straight cuts.

For use as a party craft, place each cut out bookmark (from step 2) along with a 2x6.5" strip of colored cardstock and 9" piece of ribbon into a zipper bag for ease of distribution.

Allow crafters to color as desired, then complete steps 3 and 4 on their own to complete Halloween bookmark.
