'Tis the season for creepy crafting! With the most frightening time of the year fast approaching, we felt it was our duty to showcase some of our favourite fearsome projects for you to make. From decorations, to costume ideas and patterns to make your life more menacing, there is something for every crafter to enjoy.

13 Spooky Halloween Projects To Scare You Silly

1. Bats Begin

Decorate your home with dozens of quirky bats! They look friendly enough in pink and blue but you could easily change up the colours with what's in your stash to make them more terrifying. The little ones will love them and you can guarantee they'll be out of the decorations box year after year.

2. Walking Dead

Increasing the fear factor a little more, we bring you our (literally) eye-poppingly scary zombie. He'll stand on your windowsill and give any trick-or-treaters the scare they're after this Halloween.

8. Little (Tea) Shop Of Horrors

When you're brewing a potion (or perhaps a decent cup of tea after all that mad trick-or-treating!) it needs to be in appropriate décor. We love this creative cosy, the wicked witch will ensure your potion is up to scratch and will almost certainly terrorise your guests with her gruesome glare.

9. Wicked Little Things

Whether they're used as accessories to go alongside costumes, or even just to get them excited about the event, these toys are great for the children. Simple to knit, but pleasing on the eye, these can come out year after year and become a timeless part of your go-to Halloween trimmings.

Give your guests a fright early doors and greet them with this crazy crocheted skeleton! His ghoulish charm is incredible and he's easy to make so why not craft one for all the rooms in your house?

11. Web Of Shadows

Keep your costume stylish with this wonderful web! Not only does it work as a low-key costume if you don't fancy going all out this year - and paired with a witch hat you'll still be rocking the Halloween look - but it also works as a handmade extra for pretty much any spooky attire.

12. Grave Encounters

Haunt your friends and family with this fantastic grave-yarn! Although this quirky pattern is simple to make, you'll wow everyone with your extraordinary crafting skills. If you're a particularly confident crocheter you could even try adapting the pattern to a bigger scale.

13. Dead Calm

It would be wrong to have a list of crafty Halloween makes without including a blanket! This can equally be used as a throw to decorate your sofa for the big day as well as serve as a cosy comforter to keep you warm throughout autumn, and beyond. We love the colour combinations.
