My “You’ve Been Boo’zed” free Halloween wine tag printables plus a bottle of Halloween “spirits” is all you need for this fun Halloween tradition.
Trick or Treat! You’ve Been Boo’zed and I think you’re going to like it. Check out my adult-only twist to the popular “You’ve Been Booed” phenomenon. Instead of candy and Halloween treats for the family, my version secretly places a nice bottle of wine, champagne or spirits, at a neighbor’s doorstep.
Have you been “booed” before? I have! Multiple times actually and it’s awesome.
My first “booing” happened a good 7 years ago when I was still a 4th-grade teacher. I remember walking into my classroom and being shocked to find a plastic Trick-or-Treating pumpkin filled to the brim with Halloween candy, pencils, erasers, and other little trinkets.
Along with the goodies, I found two pieces of paper. One paper was a sign that said, “We’ve Been Booed”. The other paper explained that these treats were a surprise for myself and my class. We needed to continue the Halloween spirit and “Boo” another classroom who hadn’t been “booed” yet.
How do you know if someone has been “booed”?
When you’re “booed”, you must place your “We’ve Been Booed” sign in the window or on your door so anyone looking to continue the chain knows you’ve already received treats. Fun, right?!
Since that first time being “booed” in my classroom, I have been “booed” several more times by neighbors in our old community back in Tampa. It’s just a really fun way to help spread Halloween cheer.
Fast forward a good 7 years and we currently live in a more secluded area. Sadly, we get no trick-or-treaters here! Our son, Zach, is now 16 years old and goes trick-or-treating in his friends’ neighborhoods. Halloween sure has changed for us!
It’s really kind of hard to get into the Halloween spirit when Halloween doesn’t seem to happen in your house anymore.
But I’m making a change. This year is going to be different. I’ve given up the pity party and vowed to make this Halloween the best one yet!
Moms, dads, grandmas, and grandpas listen up. You’re never too old to celebrate Halloween!
Thus far I’ve created some delicious adult-only Halloween Creamsicle Jello Shots and decorated my house for Halloween in a non-traditional color palette that’s a far cry from the decor I once used when our kiddo was younger.
As a way of getting my fellow grown-ups on board with my “Take Back Halloween” revolution, I decided to gift a few friends and neighbors with a nice bottle of wine. I “Boo’zed” them!

Cut out the two tags. Don’t forget to remove the tiny holes for the neck of your bottle.
To remove the holes, I gently folded the wine tag and made a slit.
With the slit now cut, you can easily work around the entire circle until it’s free.
Simply slip the two Halloween wine tags on the neck of your wine, champagne or spirit bottle, add a festive bow just because it’s pretty, and leave the Halloween treat at a neighbor’s front door.
Sit back and admire your work! Hopefully, your neighbors follow directions and keep the chain going strong.
I’m still confused on how this “You’ve been Boo’zed” chain works.
Let me break it down one more time! And so you know, these instructions are printed on one of the Halloween wine tags so your neighbors shouldn’t have any problems figuring it all out.
- You begin the chain by printing out my “You’ve Been Boo’zed” printables and placing them on a bottle of your choice.
- Next, you secretly place the bottle at a neighbor’s front door.
- Once the neighbor receives the bottle, they make a copy of the two tags you placed on their bottle.
- After making the copies, the neighbor takes the original “We’ve Been Boo’zed” tag you placed on their bottle and puts it on their door or in a window. This is so other neighbors know “You’ve Been Boo’zed” already.
- The new tags they printed will go on a bottle they purchase to continue the chain with a new neighbor.
- It’s as easy as that!
I don’t know about you but I’m so excited to get this “You’ve Been Boo’zed” chain started! I’ve got my bottles put together and I’m ready to surprise a few neighbors ASAP. If you give this a try in your own neighborhood let me know how it works out!
