Cute DIY Crocheted Home Décor Projects

If the pandemic has taught us something, it is to get more creative. Getting stuck at home sparked our creativity. Some started painting: others knitted, crocheted, and wove through the boring days of lockdown. Sewing machines were taken out from closets, dusted off, and put to good use. So were needles, yarns, and quilts, all of which spurned a creative trend for all things vintage. While the crocheting craft itself might seem modest, the revenue it generated wasn’t. 

A rise in crafted merchandise on Etsy, an e-commerce company that sells handmade and vintage arts and craft supplies more than doubled during the pandemic increasing the company’s revenue to $1.7 billion in 2020.

Does your home need a creative touch? If so, consider a few creative crochet projects that can add an artistic touch to your home and make you relax, unwind and get your mind off stress. 

Transform Your Pillow Covers

Transform your old pillows and give them a new lease on life by crocheting colourful covers. With a variety of styles and patterns, you can create designs that will transform your living room and make a statement.
