Last year I wondered what the craft craze of 2010 would be, so I thought it would be fun to look back and then make my predictions for 2011.
I received a few theories such as “patterns”, “repurposing”, and “monograms”. Some of those were right on, as we saw the reuse, recycle and repurpose trend continue in the craft and decorating world. I featured my friend’s shutter turned wall art as a prime example:
and also salvaged auto glass used as a unique vase filler:
Monograms were also indeed popular in 2010, seen in projects such as pillows, furniture, wreaths, and wall art.
So what do you think the craft craze of 2011 will be? I definitely think that personalized crafts will continue to be popular, as will the repurpose and reuse trend. I’m also seeing lots of people going crazy for their Silhouettes and Cricuts, so I’m sure we’ll continue to see plenty of creative projects using those. I can’t wait to hear your ideas in the comments!
