What better way to announce the arrival of your little bundle of joy than the coveted occasion of Halloween? We have a range of ideas to help you in the process. Pumpkins and costumes play a major role in the reveal. Lap it up as spooky, cool, boo-tiful, and witty ideas are thrown your way.
1) Pumpkin Baby Announcement
Write the names of the family members on pumpkins using black markers. Alternatively, you can use stencils on black construction paper for the letters and glue them on the surface of the pumpkins. Add a small pumpkin to the group and write baby on it. Quite a hint, what say?
Those adept at carving pumpkins can hollow out a bigger pumpkin signifying the mother and placing a tiny pumpkin within. Isn’t cuteness redefined? The other pumpkins can have the names of the other family members on them. Pregnant pumpkin carving stencils can be used for a creative birth announcement. Isn’t it great to make a pumpkin having a baby inside?
If you don’t want to clutter your pumpkins with letters, just draw Jack-o’-lantern faces on them. A hat on one pumpkin signifies the father, a flower on another signifies the mother, and the baby pumpkin can have a pacifier glued on. You can notify the due date on a chalkboard placed in the background.
If you want to surprise your husband with the announcement, make the below-carved pumpkin for him with light inside. Get the photos clicked and share them on social media to get instant attention and hearty good wishes for the upcoming little one.
2) Halloween Baby Announcement Costumes
These eerie black and white skeleton costumes and the right makeup are sure to send a chill down your spine. Note the tiny skeleton on mom-to-be’s costume denoting the baby’s arrival.
For twins, you can have 2 baby skeletons on your shirt. Look for Halloween maternity T-shirts at a nearby store.
Distribute cards with the due date among friends and family. They should be Halloween-themed.

4) Onesie With Birth Announcement Wordings

5) Dogs For Pregnancy Announcement
Let the dogs do the talking with a cool chalkboard-style announcement as the backdrop. Share the photos and let your faithful friends be popular on social media. A torrent of best wishes should follow.
It would be a great idea to make a video of your pumpkin carvings, complete with a beautiful, meaningful song playing in the background and announcing the new arrival with a pumpkin message in the end. The below could be your inspiration. Share on social media and see the reaction!
