junk in the trunk

last night we went to a trunk or treat for our church. It is a really fun way for kids to trick-or-treat without the worry. Everyone pulls into a parking spot opens up their trunk and hands out candy! It is a blast and I always looked forward to it when I was growing up. This was the first time that I have ever decorated my own car and it was just so much fun. The whole thing total was under $20. Most of the items I found at Walmart or Target in their dollar sections. I had the little dude in a glow-in-the-dark skeleton costume, Mr L was a vampire and I was a witch so I wanted to make our car kind-of spooky so we all blended in. Of course I didn't take pictures of the whole trunk once we were there so the only picture I have of the whole thing is in broad daylight and a few of the little dude playing with the decorations. I taped a batter blacklight to the ceiling to pop out the spider webs and ghosts and some strobe lights going on which made it a little creepy but still fun. Here is a list of what I got and where in case ideas are what your are needing.

blacklight spider webs (.$97)
mini strobe lights (we already had these but I would say
they probably were $3?)
blacklight ($4 - on sale!)
fabric (clearance- $3 for the whole roll!)

ghosts ($1 each)
glowing skull ($3)
skeleton garland ($.99)
green bucket (G's toy basket that I found in the dollar section)

... he looks a little nervous!
