1. Pumpkin Love Crochet Pattern
It isn’t always a must to go for intricate pumpkin carvings or worry about the gourds getting all perished when it comes to working up a stunning Halloween decor – because you can always get it done with some hand crocheted 3 dimensional pumpkins. What you are going to need to put the faux pumpkins together is a few yards of worsted weight yarn for pumpkin body, small amount of green for pumpkin stem, size J crochet hook, polyester fiberfill stuffing, and a yarn needle.

2. DIY Spider Web Crochet
Work up a crocheted spider web on the windows, or simply hang a bunch of webs around the house to integrate a creepy crawly vibe to Halloween in an instant. Not to forget, the web is accompanied by a scary faux spider, loaded with fiber fill. Beginning from a simple crochet circle, you continue to expand towards the outer rings of the web.
Gather a size 10 crochet thread, size 8 crochet hook, fiber fill, a round container or object to form spider legs, seed beads for spider eyes, an empty pizza box, wax paper or plastic wrap, cellophane tape, glue, water, paint brush, stick pins, and clear thread to forge the webs. The pattern gets it done with triple treble stitches and chain spaces between webspokes, in a way that makes sure that each of the spokes looks unique.

3. Halloween Tree of Spookiness
A real or fake branch adorned with homemade Halloween ornaments can yield a picturesque vase that falls apt and appropriate for the trick-or-treat day! The Halloween tree shared by Red Heart is customized with spooky yet adorable crochet crafts that have got three different types of ghosts and super cute Jack o’ Lanterns.
The white ghosts with googly black eyes look incredible when hanging on the branch, while the bright orange pumpkins with facial features in black add the much needed element of color to the decor. Apart from orange and white yarn, you need a steel crochet hook, thread needle, polyester fiberfill, white buttons, white sewing thread, and a few ornament hangers. We love the inverted tear drop shape sported by one of the ghosts, while the peanut-shaped one looks equally adorable.

4. Halloween bag Trio
Great holiday decorations to jazz up the space for Halloween, or winsome storage for festive candy for your kiddos – this bag trio works wonders for both. Each of the bags is put together using the same pattern that goes for foundation chain and single crochets – the key is to simply switch the colors and end up in the finished design. While the scarecrow and ghost have got crocheted pieces for the faces, the pumpkin uses felt to get it done.
The ghost face with its asymmetrical features adds so much more character to the piece, letting the crooked face bring out a free flowing form and vibe. Highland Hickory Designs shares the free pattern to forge the three bags for Halloween, while taking you through the detailed steps to build the fun and festive trio collection with utmost ease.
