13 Cute Halloween Crochet Patterns

As soon as the first leaf falls from the tree, I’m ready for Halloween. Pumpkins galore, Beetlejuice on REPEAT and the perfect excuse to eat Reese’s pumpkins without the guilt.

I also love making my home as cozy as possible in fall and winter, which means it’s time to bust out those crochet hooks! These adorable crocheted Halloween patterns will add a warm charm to your home while adding a touch of seasonal flair!

Best of all, most of these projects can be made in an hour or less…so pop in Hocus Pocus, put some apple cider on the stove, and get to crocheting these cute projects for Halloween.

7 Day of the Dead Crafts

YOU GUYS…have you seen this preview for Pixar’s new film, Coco?

DOESN’T THIS LOOK ABSOLUTELY STUNNING?

Besides the fact that I love almost everything that Pixar does, I cannot wait to see their interpretation of this Dia de los Muertos story.  The color palette alone is reason enough to check this film out, but I have a feeling the music, the plot, and the overall message about death and remembrance will help this film go down in Pixar history as one of the greats…fingers crossed, at least!

I’ve always been fascinated with the sugar skulls and other decorations that make Dia de los Muertos one of the most ironically colorful holidays in existence…and if you want to add a little color to your Halloween décor this year, be sure to check out these 7 sugar skull-inspired Day of the Dead Crafts!
