3 Ways to Decorate Your Car this Halloween


Pumpkin spice fumes invade the air, leaves are falling to the ground and the brezze is getting a bit briskier, you know what time of the year it is. The fall time is here & in full swing and for many Americans’ one of their favorite holidays, Halloween is right around the corner. For countless individuals who take part in this holiday, not only do people enjoy dressing up in their favorite characters, alter ego’s etc., they also take to their car as another willing participant in their holiday festivities. Here are three ways you can decorate your car this Halloween whether for your churches’ annual Trunk or Treat or if you’re spicing up the office/dealership like us!

1.  Not that creative? There is a kit for that!

Whether you’re in a rush or just plain ole don’t have the creative juices freely flowing through your head this year, there are plenty pre-packaged Trunk-or-Treat decoration packs. While doing our research, we found that many of them are categorized, fully inclusive of everything you need and themed, so literally all you have to do is show up and decorate. Some great places to start with finding these decoration packs are Party City, Amazon and OrientalTraiding.com

2.  ALWAYS, start with a theme 

The best way to make this decorating process as less stressful as possible this year is to establish a theme for each car you want to decorate. Meaning if you want to go with a “Dawn of the Dead” theme for one or maybe Charlie Brown has always been your favorite character and you chose your car as the perfect embodiment to bring him back to life. Decide first and for-most what theme you are going for! From there, devise a list of every prop, decoration, candy, wig, and tape etc. that you need to make your idea come to fruition. A great place to start for Trunk or Treat themes is always going to be Pinterest.com and quick Google search.

3.  Props are the way to go

You almost can never be too outrageous with your design ideas for your next car decoration endeavors. But to take it to the extra mile and ensure that you’re ranked win (if you’re in a full-fledged contest) additional props are going to be the way to go. Have your idea? Don’t just stop at decorating your car, think how can I make this extremely memorable? The key to this is going to be to EXTEND your decorations. Whether you decide to make your truck feature a 5 foot tongue that is left hanging out of its mouth or you personally are the dungeon keeper, of the gruesomely scary and cob-web filled dungeon, add EXTRA! This can be done by incorporating a personal costume to match your cars’ theme or including props like a full-fledged fishing-hole positioned outside of your car, Go Big or Go Home is the name of the game when it comes to decorating your car this Halloween Season.
