If you thought these Halloween PowerPoint backgrounds were scary, then perhaps you should turn back now. These Celtic Cross PowerPoint backgrounds are a little more sinister.
Our PowerPoint designers have just discovered how to add sound to their presentations, so each slide of these templates has the ominous tolling of a bell. Just what you don’t need ringing in your head as you’re trying to drift off to sleep.
When you run each presentation, a bell tolls automatically (you don’t have to click anywhere to trigger it), and it tolls just once. Any more than once and it might drive your entire audience potty. There are two styles of bell tolls, so you can pick the one you like the most.
As these backgrounds are quite dark (in more ways than one), you’ll probably want to use light coloured text for your content so that it can be read clearly.
Click on each of the images above to open up the background in PowerPoint and then get busy adding your content. Ctrl+s to save a template to your own computer and then you can use it in your upcoming presentations.
You’ll be relieved to know that once Halloween is behind us, we’ll resume making our non-scary templates again. In the meantime, you might have to remain hiding behind the settee.
What do you call them – Jack O’ Lanterns or just plain old pumpkin heads? Whatever you call them, we’ve got a spooky Jack O’ Lantern template here for you to download for free. It’s just one template that includes four different Jack O’ Lanterns appearing in a sinister manner, each on a slide of its own.
If looking at those ugly pumpkin heads doesn’t put you off your breakfast, I don’t know what will.
They’re animated too, so each Jack O’ Lantern floats in with a text box attached, in which you can put your bullet points. Because there are four slides, each with a different pumpkin head appearing, you can actually save out four different Jack O’ Lantern templates, each one showing just one pumpkin head. Then you would have four different templates. Does that make sense? What I would do is download this template and then save three further copies of it so you have four in total. Open each one in PowerPoint and delete three of the pumpkin head slides so you have only one pumpkin head left. Do the same in the remaining three templates, so each template shows a different pumpkin head.
But, it’s up to you what you do with them. We credit you with sufficient chutzpah to be more creative than us!

All those teachers who are faint of heart or of a weak disposition – turn away now! Or at least don’t download this free Halloween PowerPoint background. The image above doesn’t really do justice to the template you can download. On the downloadable template, there is a title slide and also a content slide, both of differing spooky designs – replete with text boxes (unlike the image above, duh!).
Click on the image to open up this scary Halloween background in PowerPoint, press ctrl+s to save it to your computer and then add your own content so you can use it in your own presentations. We’ve quite generously saved all the fonts we used with the template, so you don’t have to seek out and download them yourself. This leads to a bigger file size, but less work for you. Your audience never knows how big the file sizes are, so what the hell?
If you like this background, you’ll probably enjoy this pumpkin headed Halloween template and this bat infested Halloween background, too. You can download them all free, and use them in your own presentations.
We got such a good response to our Halloween PowerPoint template, that we put our designers on overtime to get another one created and published. Of course, they’re having nightmares now, but we think it’s worth it. Glowing pumpkin heads, a dark and sinister background, shrieking cats and a spooky font – this new Halloween background has got it all! Just don’t view it immediately before going to bed!
You can right click on the image above to save it directly to your computer, or simply left click on it to open it up in PowerPoint itself. Then amend it and save it to your computer, so you don’t lose your changes. Don’t worry about the spooky font we used; we embedded it into the template so that you can use it whether you have that font installed on your PC or not. The consequence of embedding fonts is that the file size of the template is huge, but that shouldn’t matter too much (it’s still under 3MB). At least you get to add or change text without having to hnt round, download and install the font. It’s all done for you.
