Halloween Garage Door Ideas

My Halloween garage ideas came to me after I stumbled upon some cool but very overpriced garage door decals online. We’re talking two hundred bucks! I particularly love the zombie apocalypse theme and knew I could create something for a lot less.

Garage Door Halloween Decor Supply List

  • Colored sidewalk chalk – look for some with black, green & red chalk
  • Biohazard tape
  • Thick clear tape

That’s all you need for this project! I got the chalk from Michaels and the tape from Spirit Halloween Shop. I spent less than $15 for everything!

How to Make Spooky Garage Door Halloween Decorations

We have a three car garage, but this project will work if you have a one or two car garage as well. I decided to concentrate my garage Halloween decorations on the middle bay.

Step 1. – Write Message with Chalk

Plan out what you’d like it to say on the Halloween garage door. Figure out where the letters will go before you start writing. Mine was a little tricky with the raised panels. You’ll also want to choose which colors to use.

Step 2. – Outline the letters

To make everything stand out, trace the outline of the letters with black chalk. You’ll also want to fill in any bare spots with color inside the outline.

Step 3. – Tape the Doors

Finally, I taped the other two garage doors shut with Biohazard tape. Secure the Biohazard tape with clear tape in a criss cross pattern.

And that’s my idea for garage door Halloween decorations! It’s an easy and inexpensive way to add some spooky fun to your outdoor Halloween decorations. And of course, it washes off 😉
