Every year our neighborhood hosts a trunk or treat party and we love seeing all the fun themes and creativity that goes into decorating trunks for the big day.  The kids love running from trunk to trunk gathering up all those yummy goodies and the adults love hanging out and visiting each other.

This year our family chose to decorate our trunk with a Willy Wonka inspired theme. From lickable wallpaper to Wonka vision glasses, you're bound to find some fun ideas for your Trunk or Treat party!

This Wonka inspired Trunk or Treat was so much fun to put together. Check out the rest of the post below to see how to recreate it yourself!

The first thing I did to create this magical Wonka factory was to pin an Amethyst Plastic Tablecloth to the inside of the trunk. I then created a balloon garland (here's a great tutorial on how to DIY a balloon garland) and instead of using only balloons, I also added a several Solid Color Hanging Paper Lanterns to the garland to give it a fuller look without needing to blow up a lot of balloons.

Using my Cricut Explore Air 2, I cut out several golden tickets and paper candies to attach to the garland. I also used my Cricut to cut out the letters to spell Wonka and attached them to the backdrop using glue dots. It all held together great throughout the evening!

Here's our very own little Veruca Salt demanding "I WANT IT NOW" with a golden ticket and swirly lollipop in hand. To create this look, I found the red dress on Amazon  and sewed black buttons down the front of the dress. I attached a peter pan style collar around the neck that I cut out of white fabric and then a black ribbon tied around the waist finished the costume off.

Let's all sing along! 

Kids loved picking out these funky Shutter Glasses in a variety of colors. I set a few glasses out and placed some inside a jar with a sign that said Wonka Vision Glasses. It was so fun to see all the kids walking around with their Wonka glasses on! 

Candy filled Golden Eggs were a huge hit with the kids and they were all relieved they were "good eggs" when they came by to pick out their treats. 

 Large Cherry Flavored Swirl Lollipops turned into Twirly Whirly Wonka Pops and the little trunk or treaters were so excited over these giant rainbow lollipops!

Ok, so this is definitely NOT lickable wallpaper (so be sure to remind the kids!) but I wanted to incorporate the fruity wallpaper into the trunk or treat somehow. So, I came up with the idea of attaching Fruit Slice Putty to white foam board. I think the kids preferred this idea over lickable wallpaper because they were able to choose a fun fruit slice putty to play with and take home! 

Instead of fizzy lifting drinks, I thought fizzy lifting bubbles would be just as fun and what kid doesn't love blowing bubbles? Bubbles filled the air at our trunk or treat festivities and were a huge  hit with the little ones!

I hope you enjoyed this Willy Wonka inspired Trunk or Treat idea! I'm sure Mr. Wonka himself would feel right at home surround by all these colorful treats and goodies!
