CAR FOR HALLOWEEN
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.
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

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
