Trunk or Treat Ideas including a wizard theme, Mad Hatter tea party from Alice in Wonderland, and Candyland.
Guess what? Last year I had amazing opportunity to be live on the morning news sharing some awesome trunk or treat ideas, as a result I got another gig! Last year, I was on Fox News LA and this year I appeared on KTLA 5 Morning News. It was so much fun!
I did three themes and decorated three Chevy vehicles:
- Candyland – Chevy Silverado
- Mad Hatter – Chevy Traverse
- Wizard/Sorcery – Chevy Bolt EV
You can watch the actual KTLA segment here.
Let’s start with the Candyland theme first.
Candyland Trunk or Treat Ideas
First, for Candyland, I made giant candies from items I found around the house like paper plates, cardboard tubes, toy balls, and pool noodles. I have a separate tutorial for how I made each of these. You can find it here. The game board pieces were made by taping 12X12 pieces of colorful scrapbook paper to a white roll of paper. I bought the white roll of paper at IKEA for just a few dollars.
I covered the trunk with snow covered boxes and made large bouquets of candy in painted terra cotta pots. See the how-to video below for all the candy.
Here is a list of items I bought off Amazon. This list has my affiliate links of the products that I used:
Making the Candy
Here is a YouTube video I made of how to make the giant piece of candy! There are five different ideas with tutorials.
Alice in Wonderland Mad Hatter Tea Party
First, I draped the Traverse in greenery and giant flowers from Hobby Lobby. As a result, the greenery really made it look great. Next, I also raided a thrift store and bought mismatched teapots, trays, and cups and saucers. You can find great deals at your local discount stores, including dollar stores. Lastly, I also built a sign post out of scrap wood I had in my garage.
Here is a list of the things I bought on Amazon for this theme. I recommend all of them! These are also affiliate links.
Wizard or Sorcery Theme
This last theme was inspired by Harry Potter, therefore I wanted an eerie feel. I borrowed some items from my best friend, after that, I pulled some small furniture pieces from home. Decorating with a lot of books, potion bottles, skulls, and candles makes this theme easy. I purchased the 12 pack of battery operated candles on Amazon. Lastly, I also designed the spell book pages and printed them and placed them in an existing book. You can download the spell book pages for FREE here.
I hope you like these! I had such a blast being at the KTLA studios. Here is a picture of Jessica and me on the set!
Here is a quick YouTube video I made so that you can see more details. In conclusion, I hope you enjoyed my three awesome trunk or treat ideas!
