Halloween Inspiration

Halloween gives us the opportunity to use our crafting skills in creative and unusual ways. DIY costumes are always so unique and fun to make, but here at the Love of Knitting and Love of Crochet office, we want our costumes to represent one of our favorite things: yarn! When we started searching for yarn-related Halloween costumes, we found several ideas that are too fun not to share.

Spaghetti and meatballs have never been so cute! Grab a bowl, some scrap yarn, and make some pompom meatballs to get this look.
