Hillbilly Trick Mobile

Hillbilly Trick Mobile

My family really enjoys Halloween and fall. My Mom, known as the Halloweenie Queenie, really enjoys decorating her yard and tends to go over the top! This year with the help of my son she built a fun Hillbilly Trick Mobile – a fun little Halloween truck or car. So, I thought I’d share it with you and how you can build your own to display in your yard for the season!

What You’ll Need:

  • 7 Square Bales of Straw
  • People – Mom used scarecrows from Michaels Craft Stores
  • 4 Wheels – we used some old tillage equipment and wagon wheels
  • Lights
  • License Plate
  • Steering Wheel
Hillbilly Trick Mobile

To assemble your trick mobile, set four bales on the ground to form a rectangle. Sit two in the back for the back seats and one in front for the front seat. Sit your scarecrow men and women in the seats. Place two wheels on each side on the ground. For the lights we used part of an old sandbox boat, but you can get creative and use whatever you’d like. For the license plate my Mom spray painted a board black and my son painted “Trick Mobile” on it with orange paint. For the steering wheel you could use a wreath or whatever you can find! Enjoy 🙂

Do you have any unique decorations to share for fall or winter?

  1. that’s too funny! i like those fun decorations better than scary, bloody ones! your mom must be very creative…i try but unfortunately i don’t seem to be gifted in that category. lol

  2. What an awesome idea and so cute. I am always trying to come up with new fall and Halloween decorating ideas. Thanks for posting this one.

  3. My little great niece is only 1 year old 3 days before Halloween so I think she’s going as a duck, a sleeper onesie suit to be able to put her in bed when she conks out, lol

  4. LOVE this! I love all the Fall/Halloween activities… hayrides, pumpkin picking, etc… and trick-or-treating! My babies are dressing up as Monster High Draculaura, a black kitten, and an angel!

  5. This is a really cute and unique idea! Around here most people don’t do such creative decorating! I’m definitely saving this idea for next year. I love how the possibilities for creating it are really endless and it can be personalized for each family! Thanks for the idea!

  6. My 7 year old is going as laguna blue from Monster High and my other daughter wanted to go as Abbey Bominable so this would be so cool to win and surprise her with it. My son is scream

  7. I wish I could’ve read this before Halloween. This is a great idea! Thanks for sharing. This is just too cute!
