As Halloween approaches, avid fans of the holiday redecorate their home screens with app covers embellished with ghosts, pumpkins, bats, and more to celebrate.
To help you create a home screen fit for spooky season, I've compiled a list of Halloween apps icons that are free to use. You'll find aesthetic Halloween app covers for social media, bedazzled covers for essential apps, and minimal covers for a neutral aesthetic. When you're finished eyeing each set, choose your favorite, then begin customizing!
Cute Halloween App Covers
These adorable app covers from Pinterest are ideal for those looking to create a cute Halloween home screen. Every app cover has charming illustrations to revamp icons for spooky season. You'll find friendly ghosts, candy corn, spider webs, and vampire fangs to channel the holiday.
Orange Halloween App Covers
If you prefer white icons, these orange Halloween app covers are for you. Each cover has an orange background with dark gray artwork leaving room for a colorful wallpaper. There are twenty covers you can use and most feature the same artwork. I find this to be preferable if you like simple designs and consistency throughout your home screen.

The first two options are simple and sweet, but this set takes cover designs to the next level. Every app cover has a spider web background, a white icon to represent the app, and compelling illustrations to highlight each icon. The detailed illustrations are hard to miss and represent Halloween well.
Neutral Halloween App Covers
Last, but certainly not least in this roundup post is a set of neutral Halloween app covers that pair well with fall wallpapers. The varying shades of brown for background colors combined with intricate line art icons make for a minimal and versatile set that's easy on the eyes.
