Trunk or Treat Ideas including a wizard theme, Mad Hatter tea party from Alice in Wonderland, and Candyland.
I had another opportunity to be live on the morning news to share some fun trunk or treat ideas. 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.
First, for Candyland, I made giant candies from items I found around the house like paper plates, cardboard tubes, toy balls, and pool noodles. In the next day or two I will do a separate tutorial for how I made each of these. The game board pieces were made by taping 12X12 pieces of colorful scrapbook paper to a white roll of paper.
I covered the trunk with snow covered boxes and made large bouquets of candy in painted terra cotta pots.
Here is a list of items I bought off Amazon. This list has my affiliate links:
Alice in Wonderland Mad Hatter Tea Party
First, I draped the Traverse in greenery and giant flowers from Hobby Lobby. Next, I also raided a thrift store and bought mismatched teapots, trays, and cups and saucers. Last, 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
Finally, this theme was inspired by Harry Potter. I borrowed some items from my best friend and also 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:
