The new trend for Halloween is a Trunk or Treat! Decorate your car or SUV with one of these amazing Trunk or Treat Ideas and be the talk of your neighborhood, school, or church!
What is a Trunk or Treat?
Trunk or Treat is a relatively new idea that takes ALL of the running through dark neighborhoods out of trick or treating! A Trunk or Treat usually takes place in a parking lot, generally of a church or public meeting area of a town. Everyone shows up, pops the trunk of their cars or SUVs and decorates them in a variety of themes! All of the kids can walk around to all of the cars and gather their candy in a short amount of time. Everyone has a great time and it’s safer than traditional trick or treating (although I do love trick or treating!!) It has become very popular with churches, schools, and in neighborhoods where everyone wants to keep a closer eye on their kids. It’s truly an amazing idea.
My neighborhood is a popular place to go on Halloween night, so we decorate our whole house and have a great time handing out treats. But a couple of years ago I had my first chance to participate in a Trunk or Treat, and it was awesome! Everyone got into the idea of making some easy (but AMAZING!) Halloween car decorations, and it was so fun walking around and checking them out.
If you’ve got a car to SUV to decorate this year, look no further! I’ve gathered up some of my FAVORITE Trunk or Treat themes and ideas to give you tons of inspiration to have the best decorations in the parking lot!

I have a “No Tricks, Just Treats” Halloween invitation in the shop and really love it, so I thought that might be a fun theme to use for our Trunk or Treat.
