Printable Halloween Paper Puppets | Artist In La La Land

Omigosh, these printable Halloween paper puppets from Artist In La La Land are awesome! The creepy characters include everyone from the Headless Horseman (and his horse, of course) to Dracula, the Wolfman, and Dr. Jekyll & Mr. Hyde. Each is available as a printable PDF, which can be assembled with a few brads to create creepy cool party favors – great conversation starters, no doubt – and Halloween decorations.
