Candy + Crochet Gift Ideas!

Ever get lost in thought while dipping and diving through all of the beautiful inspiration on Pinterest? You have? 🙂 Of course you have! This post is inspired by the never-ending stream of visual stimulation that is Pinterest.

For whatever reason, my Pinterest feed is exploding with tons of gift wrapping ideas right now. There also seems to be a trend with giving food items like cookies, cupcakes, and candies. Well, I am fully in favor of that! Since I feel the need to put my own stamp on things, I decided to combine (what else?) Crochet and Candy!!

Crochet Your Costumes, Accessories, and Decorations This Halloween!

Posted in Fun Ramblings on October 3rd, 2013 by Caissa "Cami" McClinton – 2 Comments

Do you love Halloween? I know that so many of you do! I mean, what’s not to love? There’s candy, costumes, revelry… all kinds of fun! Some of my favorite memories involve venturing out for trick-or-treating on a cool, autumn evening, crunching through leaves, and learning from friends about the houses with the big candy bars! Halloween is so much fun for kids!

The fun doesn’t have to stop in childhood, my crochet friends! Crochet has endless possibilities when it comes to costume elements, trick-or-treat bags, and even Halloween decorations! I think I am going to design a pair of animal ears and attach them to a headband for a semi-costume this year. I also want to be ready for the trick-or-treaters this year, so you know I will be crocheting something spooky to decorate the porch!

Guess what! There are a number of great Halloween patterns on Crochet Spot. Here are a few that could help make Halloween special for you and for the kids in your life! 🙂

How many of you started to crochet when you knew a little one was on the way? I have definitely crocheted quite a few things for my little loved ones-both relatives and the children of friends. It seems like the perfect time for the hooks to come out is when we know someone has a “bun in the oven!” There are many advantages to crocheting for little ones. Additionally, baby projects may be perfect for beginners! Here are a few reasons I love crocheting for children.
