Tips for Cheap DIY Trunk or Treat Decorations

Typically, Trunk or Treat events are geared towards a younger audience. One of the best parts of the event is that it’s located in one, safe spot for kids to gather their candy. Therefore, these decoration tips will be more light-hearted.

Avoid overspending on this fun adventure. As a result, you can keep working on debt management without a hitch. Plus, you can still have fun on a budget! The more successes you have managing money, the more you will probably do so in the future.

Hopefully, the tips below will provide some guidance and a starting point as you consider your DIY trunk or treat options. Remember, participating in Halloween festivities is totally possible; it may require a little extra work and creativity.

Trunk or Treat Theme Ideas

  • Toy Story
  • Monsters, Inc
  • Crayon Box
  • Jurassic Park Vehicle (or dinosaur!)
  • Monster Mouth
  • Zoo
  • Aliens & Spaceship
  • Aladdin
  • Sesame Street
  • Transformers
  • Carnival
  • Harvest Time

Ways to Save Money on Halloween Decorations

  • Check your current inventory- Halloween specific and anything else around the house.
  • Borrow items from friends and family.
  • Paint, paper and cardboard can be very convincing.
  • Use the Internet for inspiration.
  • Bring your jack-o-lanterns and other autumnal decorations that you already bought.
  • Choose your theme based on things you already have!
  • Buy the cheapest candy you can. Have kids take 1-2 pieces each- not a handful.
  • Wait until it’s close to the day of Trunk or Treat- decorations will probably be on mega sale by then.

Remember, budgeting is a great tool to eliminate credit card debt, as well as incorporate fun. Plan ahead every month as you create your household budget. Anticipating costs, like Trunk or Treat, can help you avoid blowing the budget. While you may not have $200 to spend on the project, $25-50 can go a long towards buying candy and a few essential decorations.
