Printable: Color Your Own Halloween Paper Dolls

Last fall I had a bunch of requests for a black and white version of my Halloween Paper Dolls printable so that kids can color the dolls and costumes themselves. It took me about a year to get around to doing it, but I've finally done it...


At least I got it done before Halloween came around again, right? :)


I think people figured it was just a matter of deleting the color from the original version, but it was more complicated than that. The fill colors were hiding overlapping lines that I needed to cover or erase to make the black and white version. It took some time, but I'm glad I did it. My oldest was happy to get her hands on them...


Same six costumes as the color version: superhero (boy and girl), pirate, fairy, Frankenstein, and princess.

Instructions: Print on white cardstock at 100% (no scaling). Color paper dolls and costumes. Carefully cut out each paper doll, base, and costume. Cut slits in bases on solid black lines. Fold stand bases on dotted line. Match up slits in doll bases and stand bases to assemble. Fold back all costume tabs to dress dolls.

Tip: Last year several people attached magnets to the paper dolls and costumes so kids could play with them on the fridge. It makes it much easier for younger children to dress up these dolls when they don't have to use the little tabs :)

All printables are for personal, non-commercial use only. Thank you!

Last year I also had some requests for non-Halloween clothing for the paper dolls... uh... :) What can I say? I've found that my creative interests have moved away from the printables. That doesn't mean that I'll never make them... maybe I'll surprise you one day ;)

Enjoy!

I did print these out for my daughter and she IS loving them- as expected! I know you are not really doing printables anymore, but your little "Welcome Autumn" mini pennant (last year) was one of the first printables I ever printed out from one of the first creative blogs I ever explored.
