Creative Ways to Use Your Shed This Halloween + Cook Portable Warehouses

Haunted House

If you are hosting a haunted house for the whole neighborhood or just your family, you can create a spooky, unforgettable experience by using your shed. To get started, cover the existing walls and doors with black tarps or trash bags.

Then change out any bright lights with either lower watt bulbs, colored lights like a red, or even strobe lights to create an eerie effect.

Other must-haves are spooky, dramatic music, a fog machine, creepy decorations, and volunteers from your family and friends to act as ghouls, goblins, zombies, and other scary characters.


Costume Shop

Dressing up is one of the most fun parts of Halloween, but most kids want a new costume each year, which leaves plenty of extras. Grab your kid’s old costumes and invite neighbors and friends over to bring their gently used outfits as well.

Make a Halloween-themed party, with pumpkin flavored treats and mix and match costumes for a lower cost way to celebrate the holiday. If the weather is nice enough, have a fashion show and let everyone show off his or her favorite outfit.
