Craft Trend Report: Halloween

Autumn is finally here! Hooray!

We love the autumn season, there is always so much to look forward to. Cosy nights by the fire, woolly jumpers and mittens, autumn fairs with sweet treats and Halloween! Yes the spooky season is nearly here and as the children are picking out their creepy costumes, how will you prepare?

Below we’ve picked out some of the best trends we’ve seen for Halloween 2019. There is everything from décor to nibbles so keep reading to find out more!

Decorative Pumpkins

Fabulous Fabric:

We love a good pumpkin moment. Whether it’s in a pie, being carved or just nestled somewhere in the home as decoration, a pumpkin can bring in a lovely pop of autumnal colour.

A particularly big trend we’ve seen this year in the run up to Halloween is rustic style pumpkin décor.

We absolutely love this idea not only because it looks cute, but because it’s so customisable! You can use fabrics that you love to really make this your own and match it to your existing décor. This is also a great way to use up any scraps of fabric or old shirts and dresses that you were going to throw away!

The best bit is, because of the material, you can easily store these adorable little pumpkins and re-use them year after year saving you money.

Our absolute favourites come from Wonderwood and Hearth & Vine! Check them out to see how they created their fabric pumpkins.

Get Knitting:

We’ve spotted a similar style of decorative pumpkin in the knitting community. We just love the cosy feel of these knitted pumpkins and similarly to the fabric ones they are completely customisable.

We adore Gina Michele’s knitted pumpkins and she has an easy to follow tutorial over on her blog that would work perfectly with our Spiin yarn sets!      

Colourful Craze:

As much as we love the rustic aesthetic of the previous two crafts, we also love a bit of colour here at Trimcraft HQ and nobody does colour better than A Kailo Chic Life so we just had to check out what she had made for Halloween and we were not disappointed!

These bright colour block pumpkins are truly amazing, perfect as decoration or (if you use a smaller pumpkin) a centre piece.
