Our church has an annual Trunk or Treat event each fall. We’ve participated the past 2 years and try to match our decorations to our costumes. This year that meant creating a Mickey and Minnie themed Trunk or Treat design!

Mickey & Minnie Trunk or Treat for Halloween

Trunk or Treat Decor Basics

I started with a spider web tablecloth we’ve used in the past. It’s the perfect, simple background to build off of and is wipeable so I can easily clean if needed. I simply drape one end over the retracted rear cargo cover and pull the rest toward the front. The large candy bucket in the front helped hold and anchor it in place.

My son sweetly requested we have treats for kids that might need something gluten or allergy free. I thought our treats met those requirements, but just in case, I quickly filled a second treat bucket with fun plastic Halloween toys – spider rings, bats, and pencil toppers. I think they might have been just as much of a hit as the candy!

Adding a Mickey and Minnie Twist

My littlest convinced me to purchase the special Mickey and Minnie plush toys during a Halloween event last year. Paired with the cute little light up jack o’ lantern my son purchased this year, they made a great focal point for our Mickey and Minnie Trunk or Treat decor.

On either end we placed paper lantern Mickeys. My son made these with 2 different size and color paper lanterns plus hot glue. He added a cute face to one using a free printout we found online. They turned out so cute!

To finish filling in the trunk space, I added a small chalkboard from a past Kiwi Crate kit (yes, I raided our house for decorations!). I used chalk to sketch a pumpkin and add “Happy Halloween!” Finally, I placed an extra set of Mickey ears we own.

Simple Halloween Garland

We took the decorations outside of the trunk with a couple fun extras starting with a simple garland my daughter helped me create. We found a cute little jack ‘o lantern garland kit at Michaels on clearance. The black ribbon it came with was too short and I wanted a little extra “something.” While browsing the party section, we found the perfect silver and white tassel garland. I used hot glue to attach the little jack o’ lanterns and we had our own cute decor.

DIY Mickey Ghost

The final touch as our Mickey Ghost. We found a small paper lantern ghost kit with LED light at the local party store. I cut 2 ears from foam core and used hot glue to attach to the lantern. Then I used my seam ripper to open up holds for the ears in the sheer white cloth.

So simple and it gave that little extra touch as it swayed in the breeze.

All in all we had a great time putting together our Mickey and Minnie Trunk or Treat decorations as well as spending time with our church family. It was a gorgeous (albeit crazy hot and humid) October night.

Do you participate in a Trunk or Treat event?
