Halloween Garage Ideas

Halloween is the perfect time to take advantage of your garage space. Known for being dark and maybe even a little eerie, garages thrive on Halloween spirit. Think of all those scary movies you’ve seen where the spooks happen in the garage, (that horrific garage door incident in the first Scream movie, anyone?).

Whether you want to entertain your friends or create some holiday hype for your kids, let these Halloween garage ideas spark your imagination.

Scary Movie Night

One of my favorite Halloween memories is the year my friend hosted Scary Movie October in his garage. He lived out in the country and used a projector to play the movies on the wall of his garage. We all had chairs and blankets and got spooked every time we heard a car drive by out there.

It was awesome.

Because how often do you watch movies in the garage? Basements typically get all the attention as being the dark, spooky place to watch scary movies. But if your kids are into scary movies, they’ll love the thrill of changing up the environment.

Gather a small group of friends or your family, make some popcorn and take your blankets out to the garage. We dare you!

Haunted House

If you really want to impress your kids, transform your garage into a haunted house. Make it spooky with extra effects, like fog machines, black lights and candles. Use your garage workspace to make some DIY haunted house decor, like this creepy glowing masking tape hand.

Cover up any workbenches or tables with black tarp and sheets to make your garage as dark and spooky as possible. Hang monster and zombie decorations from the ceiling. Check out our DIY Haunted House Pinterest board for more Halloween garage ideas.

Trick-or-Treat Wonderland

Instead of handing out a Snickers or two at the door, turn your garage into a free-for-all candy buffet! With a garage full of candy, you’ll be the most popular house on the block.

Go all out and set up tables by category of candy. Give kids a small bag when they come in that they can fill with whatever they like.

Costume Party

For the adults, the garage is the perfect place to throw a costume party. You don’t have to worry about people making a mess in your house, and the garage adds to the spooky spirit of Halloween. Like with the haunted house idea, just throw black drapes or tarp over anything that doesn’t look Halloween-ish and have fun with DIY decorations.

Don’t have a costume? We have some ideas for that, too!
