Ideas to Use Your Garage This Halloween
Halloween is the perfect time to take advantage of your garage space, especially with our Colorado weather. You don’t need to worry about the snow if you keep your activities inside, in your garage.
Halloween is known for being eerie and dark, just like most garages. So use this to your advantage to create some Halloween spirit! Entertain your family, friends, neighbors, and even the trick-or-treaters. Let this give you and your imagination a start with these fun ways to use your garage this Halloween. Use some of these garage Halloween party ideas for your garage.
1. Trick or Treat
The first idea to use your garage this Halloween – Instead of handing out candy from your front door, turn your garage into a trick-or-treat haven. If your neighborhood is popular for trick-or-treating, you can use your finished garage as a designated stop. Decorate it with festive Halloween decorations, set up a candy station, and provide a warm and welcoming space for kids and their families to stop by and collect treats.
Halloween Garage Decorations
Decorate with pumpkins, skeletons, ghosts or monsters, or whatever your heart desires, to greet your trick-or-treaters. Set up tables and put out a candy selection. Then put small bags for your trick-or-treaters to use to select the candy they want. Invite your neighbors as we do, and not only do you have a bigger candy selection, but you also have a fun party while the neighborhood kids come to your garage to trick-or-treat.
Have yourself a garage Halloween party. You will be the hit of the neighborhood!
2. Scary Movie Night
The second idea to use your garage this Halloween is to set up your garage for Scary Movie Night.
This is pretty easy actually. Hang a sheet or use a blank wall, if you have one, for the screen. Use a projector to show your favorite scary movie. Put out the chairs and lots of blankets for your guests.
Then pop up some popcorn and put out your favorite Halloween candy for everyone to enjoy Invite your family, friends, and neighbors … we DARE you!
3. Haunted House
The third idea to use your garage this Halloween – This one can be a bit more labor intensive, but fun nonetheless. Impress your kids, friends, and neighbors by building your own haunted house!
Make it spooky with extra effects like black lights and fog machines. Use your garage workbench to make some of your own DIY creepy haunted house decor.
Use black tarps or sheets to cover up your workbenches and tables, or anything else that doesn’t belong in the haunted house. Hang your monsters, skeletons, zombies, or creepy critters of your choice, and make it SPOOKY! Create spooky scenes, set up jump scares, and add eerie lighting and sound effects. It can be an exciting and immersive experience for trick-or-treaters or guests.
4. Costume Party
Use your garage as a venue for a Halloween costume party. Decorate the space with themed props, set up a dance floor, and create a spooky ambiance with fog machines and strobe lights. Encourage guests to come in their best costumes and host a costume contest.
5. Pumpkin Carving Station
Turn your garage into a pumpkin carving station. Set up tables, provide carving tools, and have a variety of pumpkins available for guests to choose from. Offer stencils, paint, and other decorative items to make it a fun and creative activity for both kids and adults.
