Fresh Holiday Trends for 2017: Etsy

Contributor post by Michelle of EviesToolEmporium

I am fascinated by trends. Are you? There are weather trends, work place trends, business trends, job trends, food trends, real estate trends, hair trends, fashion trends color trends and so on.

The definition of a trend is a general direction in which something is developing or changing. In college I took several classes on trends. I remember distinctly studying pre peak – peak – post peak timelines. I find trends intriguing. They pique my curiosity.

Trends unite us. Give us a common ground. A connecting point.

This article is inspired by the Fresh Holiday Trends for 2017: Etsy article on the Etsy blog.

The trends are: Trending Holiday Home Decor (The New Classics, Sophisticated Stockings, and Moody Tablescapes), Trending Holiday Gifts (Deluxe Pet Gifts, Cosmic Appeal, Hometown Pride and Treat Yo’self) and Trending Presentation Ideas (Creative Wrapping). Here are a few trend inspired items from members of the Etsy Christmas In July team.

Trending Holiday Home Decor

The New Classics

Przemila K from CanisArtStudio says:.

I am a lover of nature and I know how important ecology is to our lives. Observing wild birds and animals in nature is what brings the most joy and relaxation. I want to share my impressions and love for wild nature and animals. But for me, ecology is also important and what we do to protect our planet. That’s why I’ve designed a series of home decorations that I make from waste materials. I use wood remnants from the production of other objects: small pieces of panels and frames, these pieces were going to be burned, and I give them a new life. It requires more of my time and work because everything is completely different. It took a lot of time to match those pieces to make them a nice composed whole. That’s why each of these objects is different and unique. and my decorations are made of 100% natural materials. I hope that my decorations bring joy and happiness and make a smile.

Trending Holiday Gifts

Cosmic Appeal

Stock Lane Studio from StockLaneStudio says:

The stars are trending on Etsy this year and Stock Lane Studio has plenty of Cosmic appeal. Love is written in the stars in our SLS cosmic heart printable. This heart art is great year-round, but especially fitting as a holiday gift. Nursery decor, wall art or a card for a loved one, it’s very versatile. Since it’s digital, it can also be used electronically. Announce an engagement or send a message to a loved one using your downloaded art as a backdrop. Don’t have time to do it yourself? SLS LOVES to personalize, just send us a message and we can work with you. We also offer a printed version of this heart art, and have more Night Sky designs in our shop.

Treat Yo’self

susannah raine-haddad from zouzousbasement says:

This desserts coloring book comes with markers/colored pencils or by itself.

Linda Britt from LindaBrittDesign says:

Treat yourself to a pair of these unique handmade earrings – Only you will have a pair like them! They are great for the holidays!

LindaBrittDesign

Nancy Duncan from EponasCrystals says:

Treat yourself to a beautiful wrap bracelet with high quality Czech glass beads in tones of green, gold and brown with a golden lotus charm.

Trending Presentation Ideas

Creative Wrapping

Susan McCarthy from WellDressedCupcakes says:

I just added this section to my shop for custom tags for holidays and all celebrations.

I have always loved to give homemade gifts to family. I think it started way before I became an adult! I was always making or creating something and it never stopped. The 1st year I was married -we had absolutely no money. My gift to my husband was all handmade ornaments for our 1st tree. I always love trying something new – sewing, knitting and now my Etsy shop. These tags will be perfect for some of my gifts this year. I added some for my personal homemade gifts and also baking tags which reminds me I need to start planning for cookies.

Fall’s Must-Have Home Decor Trends: Etsy

Contributor post by Michelle of EviesToolEmporium

I am fascinated by trends. Are you? There are weather trends, work place trends, business trends, job trends, food trends, real estate trends, hair trends, fashion trends color trends and so on.

The definition of a trend is a general direction in which something is developing or changing. In college I took several classes on trends. I remember distinctly studying pre peak – peak – post peak timelines. I find trends intriguing. They pique my curiosity.

Trends unite us. Give us a common ground. A connecting point.

This article is inspired by the Fall’s Must-Have Home Decor Trends article on the Etsy blog.

The trends are: Old-School Glassware, Statement Wallpaper, Stained Glass, Asymmetrical Wreaths, Stylized Seating, Cabin Fever and 2018 Prediction: Wabi-Sabi. Here are a few trend inspired items from members of the Etsy Christmas In July team.

Stained Glass

Marjorie Scenna from mscenna says:

Fall is the perfect time to feed the birds and decorate your garden and yard! Repurposed vintage glassware make unique bird feeders. This emerald green glass vintage cup and saucer is a colorful bird feeder and decorative accent, use it indoors to hold potpourri or a flame less candle too!

mscenna

Mairi from mairidesign says:

Harvest time simply must have pumpkins and this one doesn’t need carving. Being made of stained glass, this pumpkin candle holder, fits perfectly into this season’s home decor trends and, with its autumnal theme and colours, is perfect for Cabin Fever to add a warm glow to a cozy, log cabin, weekend getaway. Snuggle up with some mulled wine, an open fire and enjoy doing nothing but being thankful for what you have.

Cabin Fever

Arlene from ThisandThatCrafter says:

I started making fabric pumpkins with the 3rd thru 5th graders last year as a sewing project in the after school kids club I volunteer for. The group has ages 4 years to 5th grade and the older kids asked for something that they could craft that wasn’t just a little kids craft. So I thought I would teach them some sewing. This was their 1st sewing project last year and was a big hit. Then I decided to make them for sale. Starting with ones for Halloween then some for Fall / Thanksgiving. They have been popular and seem to be a big hit. I feel his would fall under cabin fever. Something nice to have in your cabin to make you feel at home when you are stuck in a storm.

ThisandThatCrafter

Diana from joliefemmebydiana says:

Pumpkins are always a symbol of Autumn and it’s great to see them around everywhere you look. They are great for the entire season from September all the way to November and this little pillow is great to put in a favorite chair to remind everyone that Fall is here to enjoy!

2017 Holiday Trends On Etsy

Contributor post by Michelle of EviesToolEmporium

I am fascinated by trends. Are you? There are weather trends, work place trends, business trends, job trends, food trends, real estate trends, hair trends, fashion trends color trends and so on.

The definition of a trend is a general direction in which something is developing or changing. In college I took several classes on trends. I remember distinctly studying pre peak, peak, and post peak timelines. I find trends intriguing. They pique my curiosity.

Trends unite us. Give us a common ground. A connecting point.

This article is inspired by the 2017 Holiday Merchandising Guide article on the Etsy blog.

2017 Holiday Trends On Etsy are: All The Greetings, Greenery, Modern Farmhouse, A Fragrant Season, Pawsitively Great, Gingerbread Everything, Win The Gift Exchange, Naughty Is The New Nice, Just For Them, and Moody Hues (Nordic Snowfall and Deep Jewels).

All The Greetings

Patricia from TheOldBarnDoor says:

I actually have a Merry Merry Everything Christmas Card featuring a rather dashing gargoyle.

TheOldBarnDoor

Greenery

Mairi from mairidesign says:

I created the above design after I had been using beads, made here in the Czech Republic, with my glass jewellery and knew that they would enhance a stylised evergreen tree. I had sketched several Christmas themed ornaments in this simple, swish-curve style and chose the perfect green and iridescent glass for my final design. Topping it off with a glass crystal is, simply, the cherry on the cake – or rather the diamond on the tree.

A Fragrant Season

Tanya from socksandmittens says:

I wrote this Holiday potpourri Ball DIY post on my blog a while ago and it fits the 2017 holiday trend theme “A Fragrant Season”! It is a very easy and enjoyable project.

Pawsitively Great

Nicole Bridge from MamasHookin says:

Your puppy’s on the nice list! (Was there ever any doubt?) Make sure Santa Paws has someplace to leave the treats and toys on the big day for your furry friend. This Christmas stocking was made just for dogs (although, dog lovers can also enjoy it)!

MamasHookin

Gingerbread Everything

Lia Russo from Ghirlandiamo says:

For the holidays l created two small wreaths dedicated to children, because they are decorated with clay family members (crafted by me), shaped as ginger bread. But not only for children: l thought this decor could also be a fun way to announce a new baby is arriving. I have two of these decors: with one and two kids. I hope this item will work also in this way, not only as Christmas decor.

Ghirlandiamo

Win The Gift Exchange

Emily Tan from QuirkyEleganceEm says:

A bead embroidered seashell pin is the last thing anyone would expect to find in a gift exchange, and in a very good way at that! Perfect for someone who really wishes it were summer and can’t wait for the sunny weather to come around again.

QuirkyEleganceEm

Tanya from socksandmittens says:

Win the gift exchange with this handmade crochet bath pouf! Great idea for stocking stuffer, too

socksandmittens

Connie Lee from Bungalow42 says:

Did you draw names for holiday gifts? Did you draw the hip retro/mod one in your gift exchange group? We’ve got you covered! No worries about sizing. No worries about duplicate gifts.

The wasabi, dark teal and avocado three petal flowers engender a mod retro vibe in these dangle earrings. The hand knotted flowers sway softly on the waxed linen thread creating a floating effect, particularly fun against a backdrop of tresses.

Bungalow42

Naughty Is The New Nice

Cindy Humphrey from Cynhumphrey says:

Show the world you know how to be “naughty” in a nice way by taking a step back in retro time with this sexy cartoon pin up girl scarf pendant! Perfect way to warm up those cold winter days… or evenings!

Cynhumphrey

Solveiga from Knitwoolsocks says:

Cheer up your cozy evenings at home with these fun socks made to look like Santa’s socks.

Knitwoolsocks

Stock Lane Studio from StockLaneStudio says:

Of course SLS has a Christmas card for the ‘naughty’ one on your list. This card is funny without stepping too far over the line and makes a great card for a husband or wife. As an interactive card, the mirror inside always gets a fun reaction and it’s one of our biggest hits at holiday craft fairs. Merry Christmas everyone!

StockLaneStudio

Loranesss from TurquoiseNature says:

My extremely Naughty Santa! He lives in Ukraine now but he can leave me anytime and go to another county soon!

TurquoiseNature

Just For Them

Richard and Tatiana from DesignstheLimit says:

Moody Hues (Nordic Snowfall and Deep Jewels)

Nancy Duncan from EponasCrystals says:

These jeweled scarves are done in jewel tones of red, purple, green and blue.

Emily Tan from QuirkyEleganceEm says:

These handmade earrings feature gorgeous sapphire blue vintage lamp work beads set off by sparkling silver accents. The spider-web lace like detail on these glass cage beads remind me a bit of frost, and the colour simply takes my breath away!

QuirkyEleganceEm

Linda B. from lindab142 says:

This deep jewels bracelet combines metallic blue with silver and a white tassel to top it off.
