How to Add Halloween Decorations to Your Ride

1) Devise Your Ideal Theme

Every great decoration plan is centered around a theme. If your kids are big Halloween fans, you might want to try out something more cutesy. Or you could always go the slasher-movie route or gore or whatever you’d like. The options are limitless when it comes to decorating your Clermont Toyota car, but you should start with a clear theme idea to keep everything cohesive.

2) Figure Out Where to Purchase Your Halloween Decorations

This is when you really need to get creative. Now that you’ve developed a theme for your Clermont Toyota car, it’s time to plot our your decoration layout and figure out where to buy all the supplies you’ll need to make it happen. Get creative with different materials and supplies to give your ride a little extra oomph in the decoration department. Cut teeth out of styrofoam or cardboard, turn your vehicle’s front end into a menacing face, the options are endless.

3) Make Sure Your Direction Schematic is Rooted in Safety

While your mind might be running wild with ideas and themes to deck your Clermont Toyota ride to be as spooky as possible. But, you need to make sure your halloween decoration plan won’t affect your overall safety while on the road. Here are a few things to keep in mind when putting your ride together for Halloween:

  • Your front and rear windshield should be clear at all times.
  • Don’t put ANYTHING near your tires. There’s always the chance that something could get caught in your tires and cause an accident.
  • Don’t put anything fragile on your vehicle that could fall off when traveling at high speeds. You’ll regret losing the decoration item and it also poses a major hazard for others on the road.
  • Don’t hand anything from the rear end or near the exhaust. The exhaust gets very hot while driving and could result in a burning decorations on your ride.

4) Keep it Simple

Unlike your house’s front yard and roof space, there’s limited room to work with on your ride and plenty of decorations can pose a hazard to you and others while on the road. At the end of the day, try to keep it simple and think your designs through to make sure nothing happens during your daily commutes.
