Halloween is coming soon. The temperatures have finally dropped in Mississippi and I’m ready to do some holiday seasonal craft projects. We’ll start with some Halloween crochet projects that are easy to make and accomplish some stash busting at the same time. Just a few bits of yarn can transform the mood.
Then, I’ll share some information about paper crafting for the fall season. Craft outlets such as Craftstash and Cricut have so many trendy ideas for crafting with mixed media – everything from bits of lace to full vinyl products that add a holiday touch to your space (and make excellent thoughtful gifts too).

These four projects captured my attention immediately. The Halloween Skulls scarf was designed by Twinkie Chan more than ten years ago and remains popular on the CraftBits.com blog. In just 15 rounds, a single skull head is complete. If you are new to crochet, be sure to collect the right tools for the hobby. My favorites are featured on this post about crochet tools and tips for making crochet easy.
Next up are these cute and easy Orange Halloween crochet pins. We’re talking scrap yarn heaven! You’ll need bits of orange, green, and black to make this easy, beginner level pattern. The stitch skills include single crochet, double crochet and half-double crochet. Consider making a few this season to wear with a pin backing or to give away to trick-or-treat guests.
My third selection is a knitted candy corn bowl. Yes, it is knitted, but too adorable to pass by, especially for a candy corn lover like myself.
Finally, we have a cute wavy ghost that doubles as a fridge magnet. The pattern was designed by Myra Shaw Myra’s Craft Corner and available on Craftbits.com.
Halloween Paper Crafts
There are so many amazing designers and makers here, so it’s only natural to offer some different crafting options, instead of only the Halloween crochet items.
Paper craft projects are a natural fit for this season and fun for the entire family. The Haunted Hills Thinlits Die Set by Jennifer Ogborn collection has 8 silhouettes of a hunted house. Add on some of the included elements and choose a background for a spooky paper project. Use this visual for fall decor, cardmaking or as features in your family photo album.
The Cricut Maker 3 is now available and has the power to meet your creative ideas. It is advertised as the ultimate smart cutting machine, and the kit includes all the tools and supplies you need to start cutting immediately.
This is the fastest Cricut on the market and it is suitable for cutting fabrics, paper, cardstock, and some leathers and lightweight balsa wood products. You’ll create professional-level products for yourself or to start a business! The 13 tools allow you to use decorative effects with power and admirable precision – whether it is writing, cutting, or engraving – you are covered.
Crochet Pattern Books
My bookcases are overflowing with crochet books and magazines. The crochet book selection on Amazon is truly wonderful and it’s no surprise to find dozens of Halloween crochet patterns available at reasonable prices and with free shipping through the Amazon Prime program.
