12 fun Halloween projects

What would Halloween look like without our beloved pumpkin friends?
Whether you enjoy a spiced latte, prefer to dance around a pile of colourful leaves, or love telling old spooky stories when the sun has set, pumpkins hold a very special place in our autumn-loving souls. Our crafter hearts just can’t help “pump”kin that little bit faster when we come across yet another adorable project, that we just have to make, right?

Pumpkin 2

We are not always about the spooky life. Sometimes we just want to have a slice of pie and chill with a hot cup of loveliness. What cutie pie could possibly be sweeter than this little darling knitted pumpkin. They are definitely asking for a sweet little spot in your home and perhaps a veggie friend or two. Knitted flat, this is a wonderful project for beginners to practise the knits and purls.
