Frida Kahlo is making a comeback. Those statement eyebrows and that floral headband are simply iconic and she seems to be popping up all over our Pinterest boards. Her style encourages us all to inject a little more colour into our everyday life, so we’ve rounded up nine projects for you to start making today – they’re sure to unleash your inner artist.
Calling all crocheters! We know you’ll want to make this immediately and we really can’t blame you. She captures Khalo’s essence wonderfully and would make an awesome birthday gift for a friend.
quill and create
We’re mesmerised by this showstopping paper art. Although it may look really complicated it’s certainly doable for the proficient quiller. We love the mindful practise of quilling and it’s inexpensive too!
This delicate little brooch – yes really it’s a brooch! – is such an inventive way to add a ray of sunshine to an outfit.
This wall hanging is pretty powerful and we’re so in love with it. You’ll be pleased to know you can buy one for £34.99 – just click the image below to check it out.
Isn't she lovely?
For this pretty project, Kath Webber has crocheted a beautiful selection of flowers. They can be used in all manner of ways, but this hoop art for the home is ideal if you’re nifty with a needle and thread. Why not swap the words for a famous Frida Kahlo quote?
A Touch Of Mexico
Anything with pom-poms is a hit with us and that’s why this simple decoration is up there on our to-make list. A crochet beginner could certainly give this a go – if you’re not confident with intricate flowers you could sew on pre-made ones instead.
If your home is quite minimalist then this is the project for you. You can still inject the energising colours of Frida, but in a much subtler way. Make it your own by swapping the white felt for a brighter shade or even some touches of floral fabric.
You really can’t be sad looking at sunflowers, which always look to the bright sky and bring charm and beauty to wherever they may be. With Nicola Valiji’s design, you can delight in their presence year-round. We’ve arranged our trio in a vase, but why not knit up more and thread them with ribbon to create pretty bunting?
Simple, yet stunning. The basic stitches in this design look almost geometric which we think contrasts so beautifully with the flowers.
If you love all things colour you’ll be blown away by these nine flower patterns!
