How to Make a Trunk or Treat for Halloween and Fall

Halloween and harvest festivals have changed this year but that doesn’t mean they’re canceled. You can still have some socially distanced fun. Creative Living host Jane Clauss shows how to put an easy twist on these traditional events by creating your own Trunk or Treat.

Coordinate with your family, neighbors and friends.

Keep the invitation list on the shorter side, so you’re only around those you feel most comfortable with during the pandemic. This way, you won’t have any crowds and everyone can remain socially distanced.

Find a location for your Trunk or Treat.

Pop the trunk, pick a theme and decorate.

The sky’s the limit when it comes to your imagination and decorating the trunk of your car in the most amazing way. You can go with a fall harvest theme and get some hay, corn stalks, scarecrows, pumpkins and gourds. Don’t forget the coordinating fabrics and your overalls.

Or you can go scary with spooky ghosts, goblins and creepy, crawly things. Or pick a fantasy theme like something from one of your favorite books or movies. And you might want to add some food and games to your Trunk or Treat. Getting into the spirit is easy with a little imagination and some inspiration.
