Hi All! Happy Halloween Season!
I had the privilege of signing hubby and I up for our very 1st Trunk or Treat! I have never done anything like this before, never even visited one so back on Pinterest I went for inspiration!
I have to say, there are so many creative trunks out there, it was hard to not want to do all of the ideas in one trunk! But of course it had to be a Disney themed trunk and since I signed up last minute I only had 2 weeks to put it all together. My go-to? All the décor on my front porch! Mostly Mickey and Minnie themed so away I went!
I bought an orange party table cover at the dollar store, taped it up to the lid of the trunk, found 2 polka dot flower pins at Hobby Lobby to pin my Magic Kingdom Halloween flag which I attached to the orange table cover. I hung my Halloween Mickey Pumpkin mobile on the left side with a paper clip hooked into a hole in the lid of the trunk. The flag and mobile were purchased at Disney Springs several years ago however I’ve been finding more home décor items from Disney Parks online, either at Disneystore.com or Shopdisney.com or the Disney Parks Shop App and they can ship these items straight to you.
The paper striped and polka dot garland at the bottom of the flag I put together from a kit in the Halloween section at Hobby Lobby. What I’m super proud of is my 3 stack battery-operated inflatable pumpkins I found at my local grocery store, BI-LO for $9.99!!!! That inflatable got tons of compliments! Then I finished off the left side of the trunk with a plain crate, 3 tealight holders and 2 funky black candleholders that I glued glitter pumpkins to the tops of- all from Michaels Craft store. I placed a gray Styrofoam pumpkin inside the crate and a small white Styrofoam pumpkin to the outside and laced a garland of glitter bats all over the crate and display.
I lit the tealights when it got dark so you could see the flickering pictures on them and hubby placed 2 pumpkin-carving led lights on either side of the trunk to flash the light up onto the flag so everyone could see the images.
Then of course hubby and I dressed the part with me in a festive apron and he with his Mickey tie from the College Program years at Magic Kingdom, and our Honeymoon Mickey and Minnie mouse ears. It was a SWEET success and so many memorable pictures were taken in front of the display with the children in their adorable attire. Next year is going to be more fun!
Just keep Dreamin’,
