Today, Thursday 21st January, Hobbycraft reveals how to enjoy, make and create some of the top trends for Spring/Summer 2016. Whether it’s accessorising or personalising an item of clothing, or creating the perfect festival floral headbands, or going all out and taking on the more wacky looks such as bejewelling your face or adding glitter to your parting, there is something for everyone. And, it doesn’t stop there; Hobbycraft also has a fabulous range of products for decorating your home with beautiful handmade furnishings

Flower Crowns

Flower Power reigns this summer, so why not try making a beautiful flower crown, a favourite of celebs including Millie Mackintosh, Pixie Lott, and Caroline Flack. Perfect for festivals or summer weddings, create a flower crown to suit your taste and outfit. For those who are not as crafty, or if the ideal of starting a floral headband from scratch fills you with fright, try creating a fascinator, which can be styled simply or embellished with the great range of Hobbycraft millinery materials.
Fascinator caps are available from, £1.30 and silk flowers from £1 a stem

Crochet your swimsuit

From catwalk to pool side, this summer the only swimwear to be seen in is cool crochet. Take inspiration from Tommy Hilfiger and make your very own bikini or swimsuit in a colour of your choice and be the envy of all your friends and other holiday makers. If you’ve never picked up crochet hooks before there is no better time than now as crochet is set to be one of the biggest trends for 2016. Crochet hooks start from just £1.70 and yarn (in hundreds of colours) are available from just £1.

Embellish everything!

From your face to your hair, leave no part of yourself un-embellished in 2016! Copy the stars who are leading the way such as Jess Wright who used jewels from Hobbycraft to create her amazing look, and for those who just want to dabble in the trend, why not emulate Rita Ora and add a little sparkle to your hair line or parting. Hobbycraft embellishments start from £1, and glitter from just £1.50.

Upcycle your home

This year, spruce up your home with a difference. With the new Le Blancs range available at Hobbycraft late this year you’ll have all you need to make your home look fabulous; from upcycling blank crates to creating funky storage, or shelving to decorating blanks from pineapples to peacocks.
