Free Backgrounds for your Desktop & Smartphone for October

Share the fun!

Hello October!  I am so excited to welcome this month.  It is the start of the best quarter of the year.  Seriously, we get to start off with Halloween, then run right into Thanksgiving and Christmas, then end the year with New Years Eve!  How could you not just love everything that happens in the 4th quarter of the year 🙂

Pumpkin and burlap are the best way to celebrate fall on your smartphone and computer. Download your free backgrounds from housefulofhandmade.com.
For some reason, I was having a hard time coming up with an idea for the October backgrounds.  Crazy, I know.  I love everything about Halloween, but wanted something not silly or spooky on my computer and phone.  I ended up going classic with pumpkins and then added one of my favorite rustic textures… burlap!  And it couldn’t have turned out more perfect!  I just love the way this month’s free backgrounds look.

I really love having a calendar on my phone and computer for quick reference, but I also wanted something fun for Halloween, so I made 2 free backgrounds for your desktop and smartphone, you can choose which one you like more, or switch back and forth cause you can’t choose!

I also chose a saying that wasn’t super Halloween so it can work all fall, even through Thanksgiving.  For the smartphone backgrounds, I went with a calendar and non-calendar option too.  This one is like a little fall bunting for my phone.  So perfect for the season!

I LOVE the idea of having a calendar on the home screen of your devices. I'm pinning this right now because tomorrow morning I'm going to be changing the ipad screen to this lovely calendar. This is seriously the best organizational tip I've gotten in a while. Thank you for sharing the tip and a lovely screen to use. #FantasticFriday

Thank you Elizabeth. I use my background camera all the time for quick reference. I hope you enjoy the background, there is a new one every month!

I really enjoy these backgrounds. I think it's great that they aren't particularly spooky, so that I can still use them next month. Thanks for sharing! Right now the quote with pumpkins is my background on my desktop. :)
