5 Fun Garage Door Ideas For Halloween This Year
Get creative with these five great ideas to turn your garage door into a backdrop of Halloween fun.
Glow-in-the-dark art is one simple but effective way you can make your roller garage door in Adelaide stand out. Get yourself a canister of black light hairspray and unleash your artistry any way you want. Draw a jack o’ lantern face on your garage door, complete with a forest background – or keep it simple with a good old-fashioned scary Halloween greeting.
You don’t need to worry, though – this will not be a permanent addition to the decor of your house. Just give the hairspray a good wash with some soap and water once Halloween is over, and your garage door should be as good as new.
Fake crime scene
Here's a cheeky and unique Halloween idea: make your garage door look like the entrance to a crime scene. Some people have done this by pulling out all the stops – like displaying a fake corpse made of sacks of cloth, together with artificial blood stains too. However, you don't have to make your crime scene quite so drastic.
Instead, you can go for a more subtle effect that will not be too terrifying for the little ones in the neighbourhood. For example, you could try putting up “Do Not Enter” signs on your garage door, or tape it over with some caution tape.
Fuss-free cut and paste
If you are looking for a more laid-back way to get the Halloween mood going, just craft up some simple cut-and-paste decorations. Use some black construction paper to cut spooky silhouettes out of black construction paper – this works especially well if your garage door is white in colour. Then, you can simply paste them on your garage door.
Not sure what shapes to cut out? You can always opt for simple cut-outs of ghouls or witches. You could even base them on your favourite Halloween movies or characters if you are feeling adventurous. Or you could get a roll of black electrical tape and fashion a giant spider web on your garage door – then all that is left to cut out is the spider!
Make a statement with a figurine
If you want to leave a proper impression, you could consider buying a figurine or two to position around your garage door this Halloween. Compared to paper cutouts, the three-dimensional effect of a Halloween figurine will certainly leave a bigger impact. You could have Frankenstein’s monster crouching in the corner, or perhaps suspend the figure of a wicked witch on a broomstick over your garage door.
You can easily pick a Halloween figurine up from your local store, or you could go the extra mile and build one yourself using materials lying around at home. Your kids would definitely enjoy the craft time together!
Dress it up with lighting
Adding spooky and inspired lights to your garage door will be the icing on the cake. You can purchase Halloween-themed lighting decorations at the store or make do with any outdoor fairy lights that you have. Either way, lighting up your garage door will be a good way to catch attention and create a bigger effect.
Hopefully, these suggestions have inspired you to really get into the Halloween spirit and unleash your creativity on your garage door. Looking to replace or upgrade your garage door?
