Because why should every car look the same?

We’ve all been there: walking around a sea of cars in the parking lot of a supermarket or mall, trying to remember where you parked. Often, looking out into that parking lot we see a mass of drab, grey and black vehicles devoid of any uniqueness or self-expression. During this year especially, the world has experienced a lot of heartbreak, sadness, and plain old monotony. If we can’t gather for parades and parties, why not spread a bit of the parade spirit through your car? The idea of spreading joy through your car may seem like a stretch at first, but you may be surprised at the kind of difference small actions can make in the lives of others. Seeing a clever decal on the body of a sedan as you’re on an otherwise tiresome road trip can really bring a smile to your face. So, if you want to be the kind of driver that can add a little bit of happiness into the days of your fellow drivers or pedestrians, here are three ways you can add some spice to your ride.

1. Decorate Your Headlights And Taillights

Adding customization to your head and taillights may be an easy way to start if you’re new to decorating your car or you just want something a bit more subtle. You can express yourself with a vinyl coating over your lights in a unique tint like pink or purple. Or use a stencil to create a shape or design in the vinyl for a fun outline on your lights. When you hit the brakes or use your turn signal, the driver behind you will be delighted in the small but expressive touch.

2. Use Car-Safe Decals To Decorate Your Exterior

Using decals on your car’s exterior is a great way to spread some cheer on the road. Many decals made of heavy adhesive or magnets can damage your car’s paint, but the cloth-based decals from Car Floats are completely reusable and won’t damage the paint. Plus, they come in both every day and seasonal varieties. That means you can make a statement with a bold floral or star decals all over your car, or spruce it up with a St. Patty’s themed set of decals for some holiday cheer. Either way, you will be guaranteed to get some grins from the passerby and other drivers who spot your fun and expressive car design!

3. Full Body Wraps

Another way to decorate your car’s exterior is using a full auto body wrap. These could be fun patterns, advertisements for local businesses, or a solid color in place of a paint job. Though they are louder and may be a bigger commitment, car wraps will definitely get some attention and bring a smile to the face of anyone who sees you drive by.

Adding some pizzazz to your car doesn’t have to be tacky, it can be about simply expressing yourself and spreading a little bit of joy in your community. Everyone could use a pick me up every once in a while, and with some neat car decorations, you could be the provider of those happy moments.
