You might have already seen that Pantone has chosen Ultra Violet as its colour of the year for 2018! The bold purple is set to shape a lot of the design trends for the year and we wanted to look at how we can incorporate it into our upcoming craft projects.

From simple papercrafts to home décor, upcycling and flower making, we’ve got lots of creative ideas for your next project, no matter your style or technique!

If you are looking for some Ultra Violet inspiration, then take a look below for some project ideas:

Paper flowers can look so real they’re almost like the real thing! We love the idea of an ombre flower wall for any special occasions.

Garlands

Add some subtle hints of purple by creating a unique garland from your favourite materials. They are really easy to do and don’t take too long!

Home Décor

Purple may not be the usual choice for upcycling old pieces of furniture but it can create some really unique and eye-catching pieces.

Jewellery

Statement jewellery is definitely a big trend at the moment! Why not try creating some purple tassel earrings or statement purple earrings.

 Baking

If you really enjoy baking, or just enjoy creating toppers to decorate them with, either way we love these ideas for Ultra Violet cakes.

Gift Wrapping

One simple way of adding the colour of the year to your makes is by using the colour for wrapping gifts, it’s a simple way to add a pop of the colour!
