How many times during the Christmas season have you seen cars driving around town with wreathes hanging from their grills or little Santa's sticking from the top of their antenna?

And how many times have you said to yourself, "I should have done something like that to my car for Halloween!" Below are a few ideas to get you started on decorating your vehicle for Halloween. Use common sense and think safety first.

License plate frames are a great way to express how much you love Halloween. We came up with a few ideas for our engravings, but you can have these frames read just about anything you want that will fit on the frame. "I believe in the Great Pumpkin", "Happy Halloween", "This car stops at pumpkin patches", or the address of your Halloween web site would all work well.

Usually all you will need is a wrench or socket set to remove your current license plate frame and replace it with the new, custom one. And if you live in a state that requires both a front and rear license plate, you can show off your custom frames coming and going. Customized license plate frames are available from many sources on the Internet.

Decorating the grill of your car is fun and really sticks out during the Halloween season. During this time of the year you can find many ornaments suitable to act as grill decorations for your Halloween Haunt-mobile.

In this example we used a common plastic pumpkin you can find just about anywhere. First we replaced the flashing bulb that came in it, with a non-flashing bulb. Flashing lights on your car would possibly be illegal and dangerous to on-coming traffic.

Next we carefully drilled two holes into the back of the ornament and slipped a piece of bailing wire (you could also use picture hanging wire) into one hole, through the body of the ornament and out the other hole.

The wire is used to secure the ornament to the grill of the vehicle. Remember that the ornament must be very secure to endure the vibration and bumps while the vehicle is in motion. So, make sure it is very securely attached before driving.

Decorating the radio antenna on your vehicle is a staple for holiday fun. A small pumpkin, skull, ghost or other ornament works great and really sticks out. You can attach the ornament by hot-gluing it to the antenna, but make sure that you do it in a way that it can be removed if needed.

Remember, the faster a car goes the more wind resistance the decoration will have to endure, so keep antenna decorations small. We don't put anything larger than a ping-pong ball on the antenna.

Fuzzy Dice?
No way, the staff at Halloween Online likes to hang strings of fake garlic, rubber bats, pairs of skulls or small pumpkins from the rear-view mirrors in all our vehicles!

Just make sure that the Halloween decoration is not so large as to obscure your vision through the wind-shield or can become an obstacle to your driving.
