One of the best things about being a crafter is that you never need to BUY seasonal decorations. Whether you’re crocheting an Easter chick or a Christmas snowflake – there’s a special satisfaction in creating your own custom crochet decorations. Plus, you don’t have to battle the crowds in shops, or wait for a delivery! With Halloween on the horizon it’s the perfect time to get handy with your hook and create some creepy, but cute creatures or plump pumpkins to add a little spooky sparkle to your home. I’m going to share 10 spectacularly spooky Halloween crochet pattern ideas that are definitely more treat than trick.

This boo-tiful wreath from Erica of Highland Hickory is a riot of traditional Halloween colours and motifs. From the spooky spiderweb to the jack-o-lantern this is such a fun door decoration. Packed fun of techniques, you’ll never be bored while making it either. Feeling a bit non-traditional? Why not try going for a pastel-toned wreath?
