Goblins and ghouls and ghosts, oh my! Whether your Halloween costume is cute, funny, or scary, you need to show it off (and make other witches jealous). The best way to do that? On social media, of course! 

Fall and Halloween Instagram Ideas

But are you struggling to come up with some fresh Autumn and Halloween content for Instagram? Then I have you covered. You have my full permission to go light a pumpkin spice candle, put on a cosy chunky sweater and settle in for some Fall and Halloween ideas that you can easily create on Instagram.

I have come up with a list of easily sourced props and captions for your Halloween Instagram content, so I am taking all of the hard work out of it for you. You can never be too early researching props for seasonal posts on Instagram. Let’s face it all of the good stuff can sell out super early. So I am here to help you out. I have already done all of this research for my own content for Instagram so I thought that I could help you guys out by sharing the goodies that I found.

Halloween Caption Ideas

You cannot underestimate the power of a good caption. Building a community on Instagram is key for both growth and monetization. Your audience gets to know YOU through your unique voice on Instagram. Anyone can take a pretty picture but the caption is where people get to know the real you.

But I get it! Everyone draws a blank when it comes to captions, especially for seasonal content. So I am here to help with some quick Halloween caption ideas. However I do encourage you to adapt them and put your own spin on it or else you will be saying the same things as everyone else! And that can get boring really fast.

So here are some cute and funny Halloween captions to make all the other witches jealous!

The Best Halloween Hashtags for Instagram

Hashtags are so important for reach on Instagram. If you want the complete low down on just how and why hashtags work for your Instagram account check out my post on The best travel hashtags for killer reach.

Hashtags are important to use on Instagram because it means more eyes on your profile. More eyes on your profile mean more engagement and followers. More engagement and followers equals Instagram Superstar!

In my opinion you should mix up your Halloween hashtags with other hashtags relevant to your photograph and location for best reach.
