You could maybe wrap it in a electric blanket if it has a high enough setting and depending on how cold your garage is the best way iv seen is get a bin put water in it and put your fermenter in there and buy a couple small aquarium heaters with temp gauges on them and put them in the bin set temp 2 desired temp should heat it up pretty well and keep a towel wrapped around your fermenter

Without beer, life would be a mistake.

Take a look at my post here about making a dual temp controlled chamber using a STC-1000 http://http://www.homebrewtalk.com/f39/keeping-fermentation-warm-386327/index2.html

I also use the DIY paint can (with lightbulb inside) heater. It works very well and costs little.

With a controller and some FermWrap your troubles are over....even just using a controller and heating pad works....some heating pads have a safety feature that shuts them off after a certain period so you have to watch for that.
Something is always fermenting....
