Nothing says Halloween quite like zombies, and with the ever-increasing popularity of the zombie theme in movies, TV shows, and video games, this one is sure to impress. There are so many ways to decorate for this one, so get creative. You’ll have the scariest car on the block, and it’ll give an extra thrill to trick-or-treaters in your neighborhood.

Think the best part of fall is football season? Then this one is for you. No matter your favorite team (go Buckeyes!), this theme can include whatever you love best about them. You can simply fill the trunk with spirited sports merch, create a den with football fans watching their team play, or go all out and recreate a mini version of your team’s stadium. Check out your nearest party store for supplies and inspiration.

Named the 5th best zoo in the country by USA Today, the Columbus Zoo and Aquarium draws a lot of attention. A zoo-themed trunk will too! This one is simple. All you need to do is find your favorite animals in plush form and create the exhibit of your choice!

  • Giant Mouth

This one can be spooky or silly depending on the decoration style you go with. Turning your trunk into a gaping mouth can be done with cheap supplies like carboard and construction paper, and it looks really cool! You can even make the teeth pointy to create a monster mouth or a vampire theme. This works best with SUVs and cars with hatchbacks for maximum mouth size.
