With Halloween fast approaching, we thought you might want to spruce up one of your Formstack online forms. Are you selling tickets to a midnight showing of a horror movie? Collecting donations to buy costumes or candy for a local charity? Do you just really love Halloween?

We’ve created a Halloween form theme that is free for all users. Follow the steps below to use this theme for one of your forms!

In order to implement this free form theme, you need to:

1. Create a new form theme in Formstack under the “Settings” section.
2. Copy the code in the box below and paste it into the box labeled “Additional CSS” within your form theme.
3. Give your theme a name before saving.
4. Then apply this theme to either an existing form, or create a brand new form and then apply the new theme.

That’s all! Create any kind of form you want with this free theme. Take a peek at our finished form HERE.
