Getting ready for spooky Halloween crafting? These cheap and free Halloween fonts are perfect for all of your cutting machine crafts, including trick or treat bags, hoodies, decor, and more!
After a long summer, I think we are all ready to dive into the fall/Halloween season! I’ve been crafting for Halloween for the past few weeks—I just love spooky crafts! If you’re planning on making Halloween projects with your Cricut or other cutting machine, I’ve rounded up some of my favorite fonts are perfect for all of your Halloween crafting!
These are all fonts that I’ve verified will cut nicely on your cutting machine (see notes on the individual fonts below for suggestions). This is a combination of free and paid fonts. While getting fonts for free is awesome, I also think that the best, most “cuttable” fonts are often ones you pay for—plus you’re helping to put food on the table of a designer!
