Craft Trend: Hygge

craft trend hygge

Hygge (pronounced hue-gah. We’ve been rhyming it with ‘piggie’ and now we feel stoopid) is the new buzz word for Autumn and Winter. It’s come from Denmark and originates from this book. Think warm, fuzzy, happy and cosy! And who wouldn’t want to have all those things (and a big tin of Quality Street) at this time of year. As a nod to Hygge, we’ve put together our six favourite warm and cosy craft projects for you to try this weekend! (top left to bottom right)

It’s our first craft trend of 2016 and we don’t know if it’s because we’re in a dark and gloomy month but we were drawn to monochrome to kick off the trends for this year. Doesn’t everything just look that much cooler in monochrome? Even the word is cool! We’re big fans of black and white crafts and we’ve seen heaps of them flash by recently – so we’ve picked our faves for you to try this weekend:

Craft Trend #9: Cement

Whoever would have thought that something so industrial and lumpy as concrete would become so sought after? Suddenly we find ourselves standing in the cement aisle at B&Q feeling completely out of our depth and a bit ridiculous asking for ‘the best concrete for jewellery pendants…’. We want everything we own to be made from the stuff. Plant pots, stools, frames… We’re even contemplating a concrete kitchen! Here’s our collection of the best concrete makes for you to try this weekend.
