Americans are expected to spend a record $12.2 billion on Halloween this year, according to a National Retail Federation 2023 survey.
While plenty will go to candy and costumes, decorating for this once obscure holiday has become a national pastime. Here are some ways to dress up your garage to maximize your home's spook appeal and keep trick-or-treaters shivering from the curb to the candy bowl this Halloween.

1. Treat your garage door as a giant canvas.
Deck out your garage's exterior with a festive set of decals that affix easily to a steel garage door. They can be removed and reused each year!
Make a statement with a monster teeth garage door mural. The weather-resistant material attaches to the surface of the door with a hanger and is easily removed after Halloween night.
These dancing bones are fun and festive.
2. Transform your garage and front door into a haunted (party) house.
Add props like a skeleton, hanging witch hats, and giant spiders, and you’ve set the stage for a ghoulishly good Halloween get-together.
Replace light bulbs inside the garage with orange lights or project shapes onto your door. Add a fog machine and eerie music for maximum effect.
