Along with everything else in our lives, Halloween celebrations may also look a bit different this year due to the global pandemic. If you’re considering how to trick-or-treat safely with your kids this Halloween, this might be the year to try to decorate your car for Trunk-or-Treating.
Indeed, a recent Halloween 2020 trends report showed that 22% of parents surveyed expect to put up Halloween décor as part of Trunk-or-Treat this year, along with families they know. For the uninitiated, Trunk-or-Treat is a Halloween tradition in which cars get just as decked out as candy-seekers. Participants bring their vehicles to a central location, most likely a church or school parking lot, and then decorate them with some thematic flair. Then, costumed trunk-or-Treaters roam from vehicle to vehicle, collecting candy and Halloween treats as they go.
Trunk-or-Treat ideas run the gamut, from turning your open-trunk cars into open-mouthed monsters to re-creating some of your favorite movie and TV show scenes and sets in and around your vehicle. If you’re looking for fun ways to decorate your car for Halloween, we have over 45 creative ideas for you. All you have to do is bring your own candy!
How To Decorate Your Car
1. Halloween decorated hearse
While planning your decorations, none of us would usually think of a hearse in our driveway. But if you did, it could end up being one of the most satisfying projects that you’ve had in months. You could also do a Halloween license plate with the most sinister combination of numbers and letters that you can think of!
2. Zombie killer car
At first glance, you could be forgiven for thinking that you have just ruined your car’s paint job with your marked decorations. But don’t fret! An easy look can be accomplished with chalk markers as well. These markers are temporary for glass surfaces and other non-porous surfaces such as cars.
Once you are ready to remove the ‘paint job,’ no residue is left behind. The writing stays on in the rain but comes off easily with the help of a wet, damp cloth. This idea is perfect for a one-day decoration that sets a fun mood!
3. Car trunk pumpkin vignette
If you have a car that usually sits in one spot, dress it up with some hay bales and a few painted pumpkins. It gives instant curb appeal and adds a decorative look to your garden.
4. Skeleton driving a Halloween car
Imagine the look on people’s faces when they pull up next to your parked car when a skeleton is sitting in the front seat! For this fun Halloween car decoration, a plastic skeleton is positioned in the front seat, wearing a baseball hat, sunglasses, and a dress. Carry the skeleton with you to add when you leave the car, or position your vehicle in the front yard to give trick-or-treaters a scare.
5. Halloween car trunk décor
If you don’t want to go all-out with decorating your car, how about you decorate the trunk with a few Halloween lanterns? The space is large enough to set an entire scene of your liking. Tailgate parties are a great way to socialize without being confined in small indoor spaces.
