Each year we attend a Trunk or Treat in my in-laws neighborhood. It is amazing to see the trunk or treat decorating ideas people come up with! My favorite part about a Trunk or Treat is that it brings everyone outside and it feels like a PARTY! I wanted to create an easy trunk or treat idea to share and came up with my Trunk or Treat Monster! Isn’t it cute?! It took about an hour to assemble the decorations and about 30 minutes to put it all up. Not bad for a totally awesome trunk! My neighbors thought I was a little odd staging this in my yard in September, but that’s what bloggers do. And, now it is all ready to put up on Halloween!

**Now, a word on adhesive. Use painters tape or masking tape if you are adhering something to the paint of your car. 

***My Trunk Or Treat round up has over a dozen Halloween trunk decorating ideas and I’ll add this over there to. Be sure to check it out!

Trunk Or Treat Ideas - more than a dozen trunk or treat ideas! Events To Celebrate

A lot of neighborhoods and churches host a trunk-or-treat on Halloween and I LOVE the idea! You may be scratching your head wondering, “What is a trunk or treat?” Simply put, each family parks one car in a designated area (a church parking lot, for example) and hands out candy to the kids trick-or-treating. This replaces the door-to-door trick or treating. The best ones have some way of interacting – like a ring toss or having the kids do the fishing game for their candy.

Each year we go to the neighborhood trunk or treat at my in-laws and there have been some amazing decorations! There is one family that always does a tailgating theme and they grill hot dogs to hand out instead of candy. The people next to them always do a soda shop theme and serve cups of soda to go with your hot dog. Brilliant, right?! Last year there was even a camping theme and they had a portable firepit, camping chairs and s’mores supplies. 

My favorite aspect of the trunk or treat is that it gets people outside socializing! You get to know your neighbors and have fun as a family! Don’t wait for someone else to organize one, do it yourself (that’s the party planner in me talking)!

Trunk or Treat Ideas:

Zombie Football Toss Trunk Or Treat

Genius idea, right? They had artificial grass with painted yard lines on it. Then they had a table set up with a PVC Pipe End Zone for a football toss! They had insulated coolers and football pennant flags o bring this football zombie theme home! This grass print table cover would also work great for the football field. 

Haunted House Trunk-or-Treat

Using spooky Halloween cutouts on the doors and lots of spiders webs really made this a fun display! Inside there is a Witch standing over a cauldron on real wood logs. 

 

Pirate Ship Trunk Or Treat

They built this Pirate Ship over a mini van!! I’m totally serious! It took them a few weeks to make it and they used really big sheets of cardboard to wrap the van and then spray painted the whole situation. They added a ship mast, cannons, ladders, a treasure chest and even water at the bottom! It was incredible (and time consuming)! 

Spooky Trunk Or Treat

If you don’t have 2 weeks to build a pirate ship over your car, these car decorations are perfect for you! With large eyes and a spooky mouth made from poster board they transformed this trunk! The giant spider finishes the look! 

Spooky Vegetable Garden or Cemetery Trunk Or Treat

I love this idea because it is a way to do something with all of my vegetable garden plants at the end of harvest! Throw those pumpkin vines (that overtook your entire yard even though you only planted 1) in and a few foam Halloween headstones, add in a spooky spider’s web and you’re all set!

Monster Trunk or Treat

Check out all the step-by-step details on how I created this silly, slightly scary and really fun Monster themed trunk or treat! 

Sweet Shop Trunk-or-Treat

I caught them when they were still setting up, but you get the idea. It turned out really cute! They filled the jars with sweets and all wore cute aprons and soda shop hats. This cardboard Candy Stand would work so great for this theme! 

Wizard of Oz Trunk Or Treat:

The Wizard of Oz is such a popular Halloween theme for costumes and trunk or treats. We ued large cardboard sheets to create the house, with bunched up brown craft paper for the thatched roof. Then we stuffed a pair of striped tights with fabric batting to nestle under the house. A 12′ length of yellow craft paper was used for the yellow brick road. Can’t find craft paper? Use a yellow plastic table cover to create your yellow brick road.

I love that this one can be done as a last minute trunk or treat idea. Get some poster board, some paint and start crafting! Or, use these giant Wiggle Eyes to help recreate this look. 

The Addams Family House Trunk Or Treat

Some people have too much time on their hands. Right?! This was built from a wood frame and plywood (like a kids play house) on a trailer so it could be transported. The attention to detail is so impressive! It was amazing and I hope they did something fun with it after the party!

 

Daniel in the Lions Den Trunk Or Treat {Image Source}

Trunk or Treat Daniel in the Lions Den

Such a fun play on a scriptural story! Daniel and the Lion Halloween costumes are really what pulled this trunk together!

Not only would the costumes be easy for this theme, the decorations are relatively simple as well! But the best part is that it is still really fun!! These vinyl record decorations make this theme a cinch to pull together!

Hippies Trunk Or Treat {Image Source}

Trunk or treat hippies

Another idea that would be pretty simple to execute and bring a lot of fun to the party! Hand out peace sign necklaces or tattoos and have everyone wear a tie dyed shirt with some John Lennon style sunglasses

Jonah and the Whale Trunk Or Treat {Image Source}

Trunk or Treat Jonah and the Whale

Another playful take on a scripture story! The whale car decorations alone would be awesome, but adding Jonah takes it up a notch for sure! 

Looking for supplies?
These Cat’s Eye Stickers  or Giant Googly Eyes would be perfect and are only a few bucks!

Car Lashes are the perfect look for any vehicle. Add some pink lips made from a poster board and you’re all set!
