Top 7 Holiday Trends - Moogly
The holiday season is upon us, and it is finally time to start crafting decorations and gifts! I am so happy to be sharing with you the top seven holiday trends for 2019 – they are all perfect for those of us who love DIYing around this jolly time of year! If you are knitting, crocheting or crafting for the holidays, these latest trends will help you celebrate in style.
1. Nordic Style
Scandinavian design is an aesthetic often marked by minimalism and functionality. But Nordic style is full of gorgeous motifs and fun prints! The Bernat Nordic Holiday Pillow and Red Heart Nordic Stripes Crochet Blanket are perfect for getting the classic hygge look.
2. Retro Holiday
Vintage and retro looks are found everywhere right now – including in holiday décor! From midcentury modern to 80’s bright color combinations, retro is back for the holiday season. Crochet the Red Heart Retro Ornament Throw, crochet a couple Red Heart Ornament Scrubbies and craft the Red Heart Pom Pom Wall Tree to add some history to your 2019 holidays.
3. Simple Luxury
The holidays are all about the little luxuries – from luxe textures and creature comforts, to warm and cool neutrals, you can make affordable projects look luxurious with your skills and all the fuzzy, furry, and velvety yarns out right now. Indulge by knitting the Red Heart Coziest Throw, crochet the Red Heart Restful Shades Pillow, or craft the over-the-top Bernat Alize EZ Bobble Scarf to surround yourself in luxury.
4. Woodland Wonderland
More woodsy than the Farmhouse style that has been popular the last few years, the woodland wonderland look is full of rustic details and natural materials. Look at patters like the Red Heart Polka Dot Mushroom Ornaments and Patons Felt Knit Tree Ornaments to add a touch of nature to your décor this winter!
5. Boho Celebrations
The boho look is sticking around! This “hippie-luxe” style is characterized by flowy fabrics, fun prints, earth-inspired pieces, and lots of fringe. The Bernat Tassel and Texture Crochet Pillow and the Red Heart Layered Feathered Wall Hanging are the perfect gifts for those who love this look!
6. Handmade Wreaths
Wreaths are a classic piece of holiday décor! This year handmade wreaths are everywhere you look. You can mesh this key piece with any other style to create your own custom look. Get inspired by the Bernat Pompom Wreath, the Red Heart Be Merry Knit Wreath, and the Bernat Alize EZ Wreath.
7. Personalized Gift Giving
Another trend that blends well is personalization! Let your loved ones know that you created something just for them with a handmade gift featuring their name or favorite saying. Customize the Red Heart Joy Pillow with whatever words or names you like, or say it with the Caron ABC'S & 123'S Crochet Pillows!
No matter your favorite trend, you are sure to impress with any of these projects during the holiday season!
