I’m picking my next needlework project and decided to do something for Halloween! Modern halloween cross stitch patterns can be harder to find, but I had a lot of fun researching this list. DIY Halloween home decor is an area I really need to improve on, now that we are finally settled in a house and have room to store things. I’m picturing a spooky Halloween hoop wall, so I need to get started soon.
My first cross stitch project was this little ghost, and I hated making it after several false starts. After a two year break, I started again on a different project and had fun! It isn’t as relaxing as embroidery for me, but I’m going to keep working at it.
I also have a list of Halloween hand embroidery patterns, if you are a versatile crafter!

As a beginner, I can’t give advice on cross stitch, but if you’re looking for tips on where to find hoops, stands, scissors, or floss, check out my post on the best hand sewing tools.
