Halloween icons and symbols for Word, Powerpoint and more

Quickly add a Halloween ghost, pumpkin, witches hat and more to your Outlook email, Word document or PowerPoint slides.

Icons, Stock Images and Stickers are all available in Microsoft 365 for Windows or Mac.  Illustrations is new and only seen in Insiders versions.  Some Icons are also available in Office 2019 Windows/Mac.

A reader suggests … “Maybe the scariest Halloween 2020 costume is just someone coughing without a mask?”


Insert | Illustrations | Icons has the best range of Halloween symbols.  Look for ‘Halloween’ to find most, but not all scary icons like evil pumpkins, ghosts, witches hats and skulls. 

Most, if not all icons, come in two forms; Black and White (outline).

But a few are missing. Search for ‘skeleton’ to see a complete set of bones plus dinosaur skull.

There are also ‘Bat’ icons

Black Cat also needs a separate search.

Office 2019 also has Icons, but a smaller selection. Only four icons (web, skull, headstone and pumpkin).

Halloween Icons

Any icon can be recoloured from Graphics Format | Graphics Styles | Graphics Fill.

Pumpkin color is Hex #FF7518  or RGB: 255, 117, 24.

More Halloween Icons

Beyond Office there are many Icons (really SVG graphics) available on the Internet. See Finding more SVG or Icons for Office then search for Halloween or specific words like Bat, Skeleton, Scary Clown etc.

If you’re using earlier versions of Office (Office 2016 and before), use JPG or PNG images.


Searching for ‘Halloween’ shows just two Stock Images!


Look for ‘Halloween’ shows two Stickers. Not sure what these two characters are supposed to be.

There’s an evil ghost and a heart shaped one.


The new Illustrations feature has no specific Halloween options.  Some Cats but none of them black and they are all smiling.

There are two pumpkins illustrations but the uncarved variety.
