28 Clever Trunk or Treat Ideas


Every year my church hosts a trunk or treat and I love seeing all the Halloween pictures.  It is typically a night to decorate the car and go trick or treating from car to car instead of door to door.  The kids love it and it’s a fun way to see all our friends in one place.

If you’re attending a trunk or treat this year I’ve hooked you up with some over-the-top car & trunk decorations complete with Halloween pictures for you to be inspired from.
