10 Autumn Craft Projects
Hello Autumn! If you’re like me, summer was full of evening plans, weekend trips and holidays, so when Autumn arrived, I felt a little lost until I pulled out my craft project to keep me entertained! Now, I’m loving cosying up in the living room & crafting in the evenings. Strictly is back, the Bake Off is back and I’ve been working away on lots of Autumn craft kits to help you keep your mind and hands busy over the next few months, so you can enjoy these longer, darker evenings at home too!
Whether you’re a big fan of pumpkins, woodland animals or florals, I’ve got plenty of different autumnal projects to inspire you and help you to create something you’re truly proud of! There are autumn embroidery kits, autumn cross stitch kits and a brand new felt craft kit, so don’t worry about the nights drawing in - you’ll have plenty more time to spend making. Whether you love crafting for the joy of it, want to create some new autumnal home accessories to display in your home or are looking forward to stitching some gifts for your friends, I’ve got you covered!
Autumn Cross Stitch Kits
1. Highland Cow Cross Stitch Kit
The last few years, highland cows have been so popular in interior decor, I wanted to help you to stitch your own to display in your home! There are 9 different shades of stranded cotton included in the kit to give you a wide range of colours to stitch with (I especially loved adding the back stitch to make my highland cow extra hairy!).
2. Mushroom Cross Stitch Kit
Create your own magical toadstool with the mushroom cross stitch kit. The perfect kit to help you savour all the best parts of Autumn and Winter: the threads in gorgeous shades of orange and red, the spookiness of the toadstool against the navy blue aida fabric and the hint of sparkly snowfall filling the background of the design.
Autumn Embroidery Kits
3. Deer Embroidery Kit
Stitch your own woodland stag using the deer embroidery kit that I launched last year. I’m so pleased that it’s been one of the bestselling kits, so I wanted to make sure you didn’t miss out! The sage green linen background is a dream to stitch on & there are lots of modern, patterned stitches to you to learn and experiment with.
4. Ladybird Embroidery Kit
The Ladybird Embroidery Kit is full of autumnal terracotta & cherry shades, so the finished design will help you add an autumnal touch to your home. The combo of white and grey beads adds a really subtle sparkle & 3D effect to the project and gives you the opportunity to try a bit of bead embroidery!
5. Squirrel Embroidery Kit
What says ‘autumn’ more than a little woodland squirrel?! I love the autumnal mix of materials in this one: natural linen fabric, 100% British crewel wool & silky stranded cotton threads, alongside the subtle bead shimmer & finished off inside a wooden embroidery hoop!
6. Bouquet Embroidery Kit
Create your own autumnal bouquet of flowers filled with light pink, coral, pale gold & sea green blooms - the best part is, they will last forever!
7. Fox Embroidery Kit
If you’re looking for a challenge, the fox embroidery kit is a massive 10” stitching project, so if you’re looking for a large embroidery kit to keep you busy, Mr Fox is the one for you! The kit comes with the outline pre-stitched, so you don’t have to worry about placement, tracing or proportions. It’s all ready for you to start filling in each section with your embroidery threads and beads, using the paint by numbers style key as a guide, alongside detailed stitch diagrams that will take you through the whole project step by step!
8. Pumpkin Embroidery Kit
As soon as we hit autumn, pumpkins are everywhere! So why not stitch a collection of your own pumpkins and squashes, ready to decorate your home throughout autumn, or even place alongside some spookier decorations for Halloween?
9. Cat Embroidery Kit
I couldn’t share autumnal craft projects and not mention the cat embroidery kit which is perfect for Autumn with its ginger colouring! The project is stitched onto a lovely chalk linen using a range of stranded cotton and crewel wool to add lots of texture, alongside giving you the opportunity to have a go at some bead embroidery!
Felt Craft Kits
10. Hedgehog Felt Craft Kit
This little hedgehog is the perfect autumn make, mixing hand sewing, appliqué, embroidery details & beading to help you learn lots of new skills that are super easy to pick up!
I hope that these 10 projects have inspired you to get creative this Autumn and have given you some projects to look forward to stitching at home, curled up with your favourite TV show in front of the fire.
Love, Kirsty x
