Variety of Photoshop Halloween Brushes
If you're looking for Photoshop Halloween brushes, you've come to the right place. In this article, you'll find all sorts of different types of Halloween themed brushes that you can use to decorate everything from invitations and printwork to trick or treat bags and website graphics.

Halloween Vectors Brushes
As always, I seem to like to start off these features with a little something from redheadstock. Halloween Vectors Brushes contains 33 high resolution brushes that are great for decorating all of your DTP projects like invitations, decorations, or even things like trick-or-treat bag decals. This pack contains all the Halloween classics: Skulls, jack 'o lanterns, skeletons, spider webs, bats, and so much more. Compatible with not only Photoshop and Photoshop elements, but also GIMP. A great pack for anyone looking to add a little something spooky to your seasonal projects.

On the other hand, while cute is fine, isn't spooky better?
