It's always a good idea to get ahead with 2022 trends. Whether you make to sell or you create for you, knowing the trends will help you stay ahead of the game throughout 2022. You might also be able to pre-empt homewares or products you'll see appearing on the high street.

We have gathered the top creative trends to help inspire your making for 2022 based on Google trends and Pinterest trends.

Feeling Celestial

For parties, weddings, accessories, and home decor, a celestial theme is in demand. The sun, the moon, the stars... Whatever the focus, your makes will be out of this world.

Emma Jewell Crafts had a celestial-themed wedding in which she shared all her handmade decor with us in a blog here.

Parties For Every Occasion

We all love a good birthday party or baby shower, but there is more demand for parties for many milestones a person might go through such as adoption, divorce, kids leaving home and pet parties too!

On Cricut Design Space there are hundreds of ready-to-make projects waiting to be made for a party. Head to Projects and filter by the category 'Parties and Events' to find a variety of projects such as banners, hats, personalised clothing, gift wrap and more.

Bringing Nature Indoors

Indoor plant aesthetic has been on the rise for years and is here to stay as a trend in 2022. In the home, makers are going the extra mile with biophilic room designs and decorating their spaces with as many plants as possible.

There are lots of plant-inspired makes in the community such as these plant-tastic leafy pun plant pots by lormudesigns on Instagram.

Kathy from the Cricut UK team made plant-themed mugs that could even be used as plant pots too! These designs are available as a project in Design Space. See the project here.

Plant themed mug personalisation

If you love plants, but they don't love you, making your own is a great way to go. Create paper plants like RebeccaMarieCreative has on Instagram using the Begonia Leaf Design from Cricut Design Space (search for #M1AEF4B47, #M1AEF4B33, #M1AEF4B3D).

Additionally, if you're after a nature wall for the home, you could create your own like Rebecca has with a jungle leaf theme.

Paw-fect Pet Decor

Pet owners will always go that extra mile and it seems the pets are enthusiastic about personalisation too!

Luxury pet furniture is on trend with personalised dog beds and stylish catified corners in high demand.

Debs from BagononStyle on Instagram personalised her pooches bed with his name using vinyl! See her video here.
