Whether you are a contestant in a virtual house-decorating contest or you want to get in on the fun, here are some ideas for decorating your front yard for Halloween, including transforming your garage door into a monster.

If the door is malfunctioning, contact a garage door repair service professional before decorating it to ensure that it is operating in a safe, reliable manner. Have a happy and safe Halloween!

BOOtiful Decorated Pumpkins

It wouldn’t be Halloween without carved, stenciled, or decorated pumpkins. Many excellent decorating ideas can be found on Pinterest. Show your support for local businesses by picking up an assortment of bright orange pumpkins from a pumpkin patch and display them around your front yard, porch, and entryway. Offset the orange of the pumpkins with gourds in various colors, hay bales, and a black doormat and wreath. 

Add Spooktacular Pathway Lights

This year, placing individually wrapped goodie bags at the end of your driveway is recommended, so it’s a good idea to add some LED pathway markers to ensure they’re visible. Halloween pathway markers resembling pumpkins, ghosts, and witch hats can be staked into the ground, and with the light of a spooky blue moon will make it so that kids can quickly grab the goodie bags.

Turn Your Garage Door into a Monster

Assuming the garage door is optimally operating – and if it isn’t, hire a garage door repair service professional, like APEX Garage Door and Repair – you can turn it into a monster using either homemade or store-bought decorations. Amazon sells several monster decal kits with eyes and teeth that can be applied to the door. Each time it opens, it’ll look like the monster is swallowing your car.
